Hope



hope is hand
holding flower, blown
careless wind 

~0~0

hope is pink seashell 
empty bed of gleaming pearls,
arms open to sea   


~0~0

my hands in prayer,
his last dying breath, grieving
I light a candle

  1. Grace, this is absolutely beautiful.
    the first two haiku created pleasantness while reading them. and the third one, one of melancholy.

    great expressions.
    and the photograph is so pleasant, did you click that?
