Haiku: Passion Bearers

Haiku: Passion Bearers

Published by DLGuerra
The doomed Romanov family members were canonized as Passion Bearers by the Russian Orthodox Church. In light of their family life, and the powers that brought Bolshevism to Russia (and extended its oppression to Eastern Europe in most nefarious fashion), it was no surprise that the humble children of the last Emperor and Empress of the Russian Empire were eliminated for political reasons.

The fact that personality and focus of interest -- as well as grave limitations in world view (particularly of the Empress), coupled with preoccupations concerning the heir and his mother's own health -- were severe limitations placed on the continued life of the monarchy does not detract from the Romanov family's worthiness to be named to this elevation by the Russian Orthodox Church. The loving kindness and compassion shown by the daughters to their parents, and in their service to Russian hospitals, many founded by their mother, must be noted and affirmed.

The haiku format of “seventeen stones” – three lines of five, seven, and five syllables – is kept intact in this poem in which figurative language is used to evoke an icon banner against the sky.
