Haiku: Old Nun - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

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,

    love yours,

    old nun examines
    her head and wonders
    her life has been as empty
