A Tribute to the Courage of the Miners in Chile
Painted steel bullet
shot from the bowels of the earth
dark path to freedom.
Buried deep inside
find treasures or transgressions
We are like miners
thoughts inching toward the surface
blinded by light.

Wonderful tribute to the miners!
Sorry that I am late this week. I had a migraine and using the computer (or my eyes) was just out for a couple of days.
A fine tribute. Well done haiku. Thanks for this.
Well DONE! Fantastic tribute 🙂
let me know if you wish to be in the poets rally week 31.
have a smiling day.
What a lovely tribute to the mine workers in Chile, and a wonderful reminder as well. Have a great week 🙂
Lovely tribute, your words are endearing!
Such a great tribute to an amazing story… Love these!
Very nicely done.
Thanks for the visit.
what a beautiful set of haiku here, victoria! your words resonated as i vividly recalled that day when the whole world watched the triumphant rescue of these men. i agree with you, there’s a part in each and everyone of us that live like miners- “thoughts inching toward the surface.”
this is a masterpiece!
These are stunningly beautiful and so true. Loved them and how you related them to the miners. Excellent. You know being born and raised in Nevada my family said how could I not go for UNR. Easy my heart is in Hawai’i now 🙂 it was a great game.
Thank goodness that ended on a plus note.
All three are excellent haikus, they tell a story, yet stand alone. Brilliant! Thanks for stopping by my blog. :O)
