that is society in general...horses in blinders....
Tragic but sadly so true. Great words.
I have to repeat what the others have said - sad but so true. Great Haiku
ode to humanity ~ well done ~ great presentation ~thanks ~ namaste, Carol ^_^
It does seem that way, perfect haiku BTW; But I rather like being in a so-called unconnected city sidewalk crowd. There is a non-verbal generous energy in the best cities!
Bruce is right and Bend has it!!!!
Loved your pensive Haiku...

So sad a comment on the realities of modern-day existence...
I like that you had a different take on the keyword.

Happy to find your blog and glad that you visited mine. I liked your take on 'battle'.
We've become the rats in that rat race and so busy making money and surving, we've all forgotten what it's like to actually live.This says it all in a nutshell.
excellent haiku- perfect for these times....and tag-you are a lucky duck!http://katheworsley.blogspot.com/2012/03/tag-im-lucky-duck.html
Ah yes, the silent battle. Excellent haiku for a great graphic.
Deep and thought-provoking...though I like Magical Mystical Teacher's comment... the key word is: perception...
