Love Eternally Day 22

my mother’s old ring
too small to fit my finger
her golden silence

My response to Carpe Diem’s Autumn Retreat 2018 Love Eternally

It’s time for Carpe Diem’s Autumn Retreat, a period of 30 days to write haiku or tanka every day on a specific theme: ‘love eternally’.

  1. oh wow – how unexpected! poignant, and yet a touch sad too …. wistful perhaps – but then, maybe it’s better this way – simply because it was “her ring, her bond and union” … so a token to treasure, and hold dearly, but your bond is meant to be different.

    lovely haiku Kim
    (and sorry if I wandered or read too much into it – I’m “bad for it” – no offense meant)

      1. Losses not withstanding, it is still a most treasured and lovely keepsake, I’m sure. And this is a beautiful way to honour your mother, and your memories, as well as offering moments of closeness, when needed. 🙂
