in quiet ruins ~ of forgotten memories ~ we collect our lives —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

fragrant red roses ~ in the middle of winter ~ bring warm memories — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Looking down

my feet remind me ~ of the places I have been ~ of my father’s stance — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

leaving our fragments ~ in kitchens and green backyards ~ in our words and thoughts — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa
