    ah..i've sun such a movie lately with harrison ford where only the people's substitutes live a life outside and the people stay at home to be safe…what a sad, sad life… great haiku to capture that madness…some of the teens live like this as well

    Handing it to “them” on a silver platter is more like it. Just waiting on my bar code now! Awesome, potent little response to the prompt.

  5. I can see a future where machines are the only ones outside.
    Nice capture!

  6. Compact and powerful.

  7. Cool, I used a series of haiku and tanka in my piece. I love how the idea of the machine is contrasted by these ancient forms. Love that I wasn't the only one who thought to use this form. Great job. Thanks

  11. It is happening this way. I hate to see it, though my fear and anxiety revolves around other areas of security of data and that kinds of thing.
