Barren Survival Cracks

(Image Source: http://stockfresh.com/)


dark clouds
laugh at pleading eyes
no rain today

no rain today
dark clouds march ahead
barren survival cracks

  3. After my baby daughter died, I was obsessed with scanning the news about other moms loosing their babies ... I realize it was a sick obsession, but it help me cope, because I felt better knowing that other moms where suffering as well ... I lived way out in the middle of nowhere back then ... no support system in sight ... only wide open prairie ... only thing good about it was ... I was able to cry and scream ... and nobody would come and hear ... and phone the police about this crazy woman from Europe ... this is 27 years ago ... but still so fresh in my mind, ... omg ... I'm probably way beside your haiku point ... again ... sorry about that, G ... Love, cat.
