Rosemary: HaiKu for my Grandmother

Yesterday would have been my Grandmother’s 95th birthday. We miss her.



greedy for sunlight

long fingers stretched towards heaven

leaves turning colors

bare roots to branches

leaves spring forth from tiny buds

life returning again

your life gave us life

mother of my mother gone

we remember you

  1. Just couldn’t resist with your thought there mik, ‘mother of my mother.’

    Then you have the mother of her mother……then the mother of her mother……..then the mother of her mother……sound familiar?

    Of course it does, for then you have Eve as the mother of ALL living………
