Of human failures
miseries and sufferings
that wrought pain for all

Of human conflicts
destruction of societies
built over the years

Bridging the divide
is a great challenge to test
the human resolve

Written for Leo's Haiku Heights #247 with prompt - bridge

  6. The picture of the old bridge goes well with the old problem described in your haiku.

  7. But, as farming communities grew, so , did industry and development.
    The same is valid for a two-story house in Ottawa.

  9. All three haiku - such a wonderful trio that in itself connects one to another in a poetic bridge.
