shroud me in silence
the unspoken things you are
wrapping me always
i have bathed my dead
with tears, swaddled them gently
for their new mother
Wow … you surprise me always … what can I say now?
What you said here was perfect. Creepy prompt word this week ;)
the second one gave me the chills…love it!
Thanks–rather halloweenish prompt for haiku heights this week.
Susan… wow is all I can say. your haiku this morning has taken my breath away
Beautifully done, both.
Very intriguing.. still trying to fully wrap my mind around the meaning of such beautiful lines as they are quite deep.. It’s easy to see the meaning on the surface of course but they imply so much more. Very nice!!
Thank you, Crystal!
Gorgeous and very touching. The second made me shiver.

Oh, thank you, Chevre…
Extraordinary! The second one will linger in my thoughts for awhile!! Best kind of poetry!
Love this set Susan
Thanks so much…
The first, I think, is stronger than the 2nd; but both very effective indeed.
Thanks, Ron. I agree that #1 is stronger, but wanted to submit both.
Swaddling – such a lovely way to express the contrast with shroud. Lovely, not to mention excellent
oh, gosh, thanking you.
Very nice, you got it in early?
Thanks, Bruce. posted them some time yesterday afternoon & linked this morning. Almost forgot to…
I am stunned into silence. :-)
gosh, Celestine–thank you.
Thats GREAT Susan Daniel… I’m here for the first time…and your writing is impressive…
thank you, M!
Swaddling and shrouding are so closely related, aren’t they?
Yes, they truly are. Those different sides of life.
