jornales

for a moment of joy or moments no one pays for, i give myself a ‘jornal’. this makes me rich. try it.

his smile–(tribute to JH)

his smile—
too foggy to find
among well-wishers

One of five (and one of two not included) I submitted to Margaret for her call to send haiku posted today as “All Souls Tributes”, a small collection to treasure. Click on haikudoodle in the blogroll.

    • Yes, you did say you loved all of them and that was so kind of you! All five of them this o ne among the first are for my husband who passed away ten years ago. It’s the first time I’m expressing the grief I witheld and buried under piles of everything that didn’t seem to matter then except to delay my mourning. All that has since dissipated and crystallized for the first time in the haiku I sent you. Thanks again!
