I Remember… #poetry #haiku #ancestors

“Remembrance is a form of meeting”.



confident your steps

songs echoed in difficult shadows

laughter’s memory


My grandmother was a pioneer, a lover of life, a survivor. When she was told to put her daughter in a facility for retarded children, she refused. She spent her years loving, laughing and shedding an occasional tear. I always wanted to have her spirit – I hope I succeeded.

Who is the ancestor in your life that brings a vibrant memory?

Today’s prompt at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is “Ancestor”
