    remembering
    the last leaf
    but not the last laugh

    Wonderful haiku! I could not help reading it again and again. Splendid, Lorin.

    the train
    whistles to start
    I carry her
    memories till I reach
    the stretched distance

    Wonderfully thought-provoking, Lorin.

    I was suddenly aware that my teenage daughter was whistling while working on her art project at the weekend – just like my mother used to when she was busy with something. I don't think I have ever really whistled…but then, perhaps you don't notice yourself doing it! :)
