Haiku, haiku bones

pinch hitter

haiku bones: infestation

this poison ignites
unstoppable searing flames
ransack and ravage

conflicting shadows
peaceful personality
replaced anima

no longer alone
bedridden bumbling bee
paralyzing sting

visiting a friend who awaits oncoming death i linger and chat, smiling enjoying her company knowing the inevitable is near

  1. Lovely breathing words. Sorry about your friend. You’re so good to stay with her.

    Wasn’t that sky superb? I hadn’t seen anything like it. Glad you enjoyed it, too!
