In the end

plant a tree for me ~ from which the squirrels can feed ~ and where birds can breed — Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Life

all that break or bend ~ all that start, form and fulfil ~ all that live must end — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa — Photo: Lund 2018/08

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
