Haiku 031109

on black ice

a coat of light snow
old chessboard


Recently, we read the following:

One bright cold morning, the Jakarta Post reported: "China pillories US over Tibet, extends travel ban" by Audra Ang (AP)

"China pilloried the Dalai Lama on Wednesday and criticized the United States for suggesting Beijing talk to the exiled Tibetan leader, as authorities further tightened security to prevent unrest during a volatile anniversary period...."


And we thought:

.... China's statements just becloud "the issue of China's occupation of Tibet and the Tibetans' struggle for national liberation". They becloud, too, the rest of this day for human rights advocates and supporters of a free Tibet....
