"Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.”

My heart is but your
instrument; played and strummed to
your liking, not mine

My mind lays in your
custody; locked behind tuned
strings and fastened gears.

I've missed you friend. It's so nice to back here till God knows when. Your poetry is still stunning as ever. Eerie...but compelling me to always come back for more. Congrats on another Editors' Choice for another idealistic haiku with sincere emotion.
