witness to a bad dream (haibun – Daily moments)

Contemplating on life, she looks for answers. So many missed opportunities throughout his life; family struggling yet still reaching out urging him to climb out of dark depths. Finally, crawling out he feels the warmth of light and smiles knowing not what’s next to come.

A tear rolls down her cheek …word of his grave illness pounding at the gate. The universe decides when to change one’s course in life.

witness to declining health
a mother’s nightmare

  1. No matter the age of the child….. My sister is in such deep mourning. She looks for her son in dreams, relations and anything tangible. His memorial is on Jan. 2. She plans to return to work the following week.
