Their yearnings over,
clouds and weeds now comfort them—
countless tomorrows.

  1. Comforting words providing freedom from worry!!!!

  2. What a stunning picture to accompany a lovely haiku!

  3. clouds, weeds and maybe a wreath of roses placed once in a while by a loved one? 🙂

  4. Yes, comfort, the final resting place. I actually sometimes wonder what it will be like. Think it will be anything like sitting in a comfy lawn chair with a good cigar? Just askin’


  5. I like words and photo

  6. This beautiful shot continuers to remind me of all of our losses on 9-11. Chris was precious. worked for Canter Fitzgerald in on of the towers in NYC. We had just attended our son’s marriage in Cuchara, Colorado…Chris, with his Irish heritage and red hair – the daddy of 2 adorable children – was the husband of my son’s wife’s sister. Ridgie and Patty left on their honeymoon and when they returned Chris was gone. We only met him that week, but he made such an impression on all of us we are always bringing up his name. We must be true to ourselves and live every day to its fullest because we do not know when it will end. genie

  7. Sad and hopeful haiku, “yearnings over” “comfort” for “countless tomorrows” death, but eternity.

  8. Fabulous picture and words!
