Float down now, gently

    As one who is grieving a recent loss I find great comfort in this poem. Most of all I find these words marvelous to contemplate:

    Someone, unseen, cares
    Patting shoulder from afar
    Dwell in gentle thoughts

    Thank you

    my initial impression...Wow!

    as one who has dabbled in threading haiku I can appreciate the effort necessary to craft such a compelling piece. I am in awe of the result.

    peace,
