Inhaling Jane’s Wisdom

My response to Carpe Diem Extra August 6th 2016 first tribute Theme Week Jane Reichhold

This week Chèvrefeuille  has dedicated an extra Theme Week in memory of Jane Reichhold.  In this first episode we are sharing our thoughts and favourite haiku by Jane. Reading her words was like discovering haiku for the first time and I had to take a breath for each one. The one I have chosen made me gasp; it struck such a chord me as it reminded me of my mother, who is in a care home for the elderly with dementia.

This is my haiku for Jane:

Taking a deep breath

I read morsels of your life,

inhale your wisdom.
