The bent old sister,
questions her cloistered life.
Children play beyond the gate.
Very, very vivid. It contrasts the cloistered life with children at play outside in a very moving way. I also love the contrast between the old woman and the young children. The whole Haiku sets up multiple contrasts.
Loved the read,
old nun examines
her head and wonders
her life has been as empty
