Red Lines

Red Lines K Whiteford

Inspired by this song:


neighbors divided

by the color of their skin

too much sameness

I got very loose with this haiku in that I inserted my opinion but can we call it literary licence? 🙂

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. When I chose my newer residence I chose where I wanted to live and moved here! It was a good choice! I’m thankful that I did. I love this poem! I moved from a town that had those lines and I didn’t like the way it felt. I love the literacy license here I think you can say whatever you wish just like living where you wish. I’m thankful to be in the country where I spend most of my time outside. I couldn’t do that safely where I lived before. I love this! ❤

  2. financial institutions in the states engaged in a strategy to keep the races separated in regard to urban housing. the practice was called redlining. it is illegal but still practiced. too much sameness – yeah.
