On the precipice

caught in a child’s art ~ deep thoughts through time and space ~ of life and of death —©

Loss

our sadness deepens ~ when even flowers are grey ~ in a world of pain — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Pretext

this is your siren song ~ this is your excuse not to live ~ this is my exit

Broken

here the heartbroken ~ the forgotten, unsheltered ~ lay in graves of stone

Final resting place

closer, close by ~ the end approaches every day ~ our return to stone

Last breath

the dawning was dim ~ on that very fateful day ~ that life lost its breath

Along the way

on our way to death ~ we should play and laugh and sing ~ make each moment count
