Christmas in Turkey

Christmas in Turkey: a haiku    

Christmas in Turkey

Without decorated trees

Still sun shines skies blue

    This is so expertly done. Just stuck here reading it over and over and laughing at the sheer volume and variety of connections, images and feelings that are arising. Thank you.

    Dear Professor Falk,

    There is a humanitarian crisis at temporary migrant / the refuge camp Lipa by Bihac according to Nova BH . The refuges have refused to take the food, as they are living under some perilous conditions and few other things.

    I can not believe that there is no housing available for those people in Bosnia – there has to be since there are city’s with apartments and houses empty due to forced emigration. I am sure that town of Srebrenica could reach out to the migrants / refugees and at least get the roof over the head of those people – for the time being. Its middle of the winter.

    It would be a terrible thing to witness migrated refuge in a prolonged hunger striking in open air. The report is from 3 January. Today is the 5th.

    Thank you.
