Compassion – A Haiku And Reflection


      of compassion . . .

              she pins up my hair


Today is the 8th anniversary of my mother’s passing.   All is well.   I thought I’d share this haiku, which relates to different memories.  When I was a girl, Mom brushed my hair and braided it before school.   When she was old, I brushed her long hair for her.

This haiku was published first in Time Of Singing (1996).
