Respect and Compassion


Today Americans revere
A man who broke a nation’s chains
His vision imperfect, unclear,
For us, the living, task remains

Today, proud daughter weeps with ink
Her mother broke a single link
Abuse long master bid adieu

For me, my son, and babies two.

Form: Rispetto.  February 12th was also my Mom's birthday.

Does God cry as He
counts the hairs lost strand by strand
victims of cancer's cure

haiku inspired by Connie Peters' poem about God's love for sparrows
