A haiku that in the times of dropping enriched Uranium bombs by the ton, is
soon to become an obsolete set of images. Visit Fallujah, Iraq. Suzanne

One of my most treasured possessions is an old poster, which I acquired in
the early seventies at a conference in Santa Cruz, to which I had
hitchhiked with a friend.
It is on yellow paper, and the graphic is done in brushstrokes, making it
look Oriental (Japanese). It is of a Vietnamese woman, carrying a gun.
She has a straw hat and is seen walking along a trail or ricepaddy, away
from the viewer. The poster was put out by American Documentary Films in
San Francisco and New York, a radical group that has produced some good
films and may still be in existence.
It is the poem that touches my heart.Romi/Blue
The wheel of the law turns
After the rain, good weather.
In the wink of an eye
The universe throws off
its muddy clothes.
For ten thousand miles
spreads out like a beautiful brocade
Light breezes. Smiling flowers.
High in the trees, amongst
the sparkling leaves
All the birds sing at once.
Men and animals rise-up reborn.
What could be more natural?
After sorrow, comes joy.
