April 16 Haiku

Keep these things separate:
plum blossoms and blizzards;
classrooms and gun shots.

My heart is breaking for the students, faculty, staff, families and friends of Virginia Tech.

I have a nephew who attends Virginia Tech. What a tragedy. Can our young people feel safe anywhere today?

Very moving and well done haiku.

Very touching haiku, Cloudscome. It's hard to make sense out of the insensible.

Cloudscome, Powerful. The daughters of my cousin attend there. They are safe but very shood up.
