In middle of August
The world war ended at blasts
Such Excellence! 🥀🥀🥀🥀🥀
I’m flattered. Thank you.
Ashi, I went to look. So oleanders bloom at this time of year!
“The world’s first atomic bomb, used on Aug. 6, 1945, killed 140,000 people in Hiroshima. The bombing of Nagasaki three days later killed 70,000 more.”
I’m reading an article now, written about this and the tensions with North Korea.
A man who fought in the war told me he could only see the oleander flowers in the burnt out Tokyo when returned home from the war. He said he was grateful he was still alive but was sorry at the same for he was the only one who could return home among all others who fought with him and died..
Ashi, such sadness!
My Father was stationed in Europe, and my Father-in-law in the Pacific in a tank destroyer battalion.
I didn’t know this word oleander. The surprise to learn the meaning in french powered your haïku ;o)
I meant the oleander flowers that bloom here in the summer. They also seem to be so strong that they found blooming in the war-destroyed Tokyo. I don’t know what it means in French.
In French, laurier-rose. The association of flower and war surprised me.
