And that's the truth of the truth.
Yin and Yang seems to be imperfect,
Yet, Yin won't have exist without its Yang pair.
Hatred when dead would leave behind love,
War, when buried would give peace to everyone,
The magnitude of each obnoxious event,
Determines the magnitude of its opposite pleasure.

Well written, Neville.

You are right my friend. Many great poets were loss to war and they left words for us to understand. War is s**t and home is sweet. You don't miss home till you are stepping in blood and s**t. Outstanding use of words Neville. Made me ponder and write some words.

cheers Coyote .. will certainly try my friend ..
Second time round this read about War leaves me believing my long love-hate relationship with Marmite is more than best reason for writing a poem on Peace - - - well maybe - - - or is it that I just love these little wotsits.............x

I never wore my mask in the supermarket. My god, it was hate and war.
Grannies were going ballistic, you would have thought I caused the pandemic. They wouldn't listen to my new poem either, hate those people.

Yes the war- poets led the field and still do in avid description of its greatest horrors - you pen the coupling with peace and the brevity adds to the telling - - an insightful read my friend.

I'm a marmite lover Neville, so have no problem appreciating a well written senryu. Much truth in what you say here. Poetry and peace, a good marriage
