Haiku of the day


I love Haiku, there is so much meaning in so little words….I remember the first time I was challenged to write one in school, but I can’t remember how awful it must have been!!

Here is today’s Haiku I stumbled upon. It is bittersweet, but a reminder of how short and beautiful our life is. This one is dedicated to all my family and friends who have lost a loved one.

that fell like cherry pedals

is water once again
