Celebrate Poetry-4/24: POLITICS

The theme for Day 24′s celebrating National Poetry Month is “POLITICS.” Click HERE for details of this haiku celebration of throughout the month of April.

It seems the “two sides” are getting farther and farther apart. It’s hard to find someone on “the other side” with whom I can hold an open, honest and respectful conversation about our political beliefs. That’s sad to me, because we both lose.

Where is the middle
when the distance between two
is so far apart?
