Dirt – Heiwa

Inspired by Haiku and Tanka, I’m starting a new form of poetry called Heiwa. It follows the format (5-7)(-5-7)(-7-5) and includes two opposing positions followed by reconciliation.

Here is my first Heiwa

~Dirt

This land is my land,
leave now and do not return.

Land of my fathers,
my home forever no yours.

Room for one, is room for two.
To dirt all returns.
