  4. The sky is beautiful. The haiku poignant.

  5. A nice contribution to SWF!

  6. I have known so many of these women – the loneliness overwhelms them! So much sadness.

  7. When tragedy strikes, somehow how the light fades within long before the light dims outside! And love the scudding cloud shapes! A very moving post!
