a gentle wind
nudges the tattered leaf

Lovely image. My son was died in a car accident in the Autumn. A lovely season for remembrance.

Thanks Joan. My friend's dad died last June of this year though I just learned about it recently. BTW I also made a haiga about the event. On a similar vein, my wife passed away in August 2003 so yes, autumn seems to be a time for mourning.

Ah, fine word art, masterful in its imagery.

My heartfelt condolences to you and Joan. I too have lost and know perpetual ache of grieving.

Thanks Dark Moon for your kind comments. And Joan, I forgot to express my condolence to you earlier. Death is inevitable and a fact of life and we try to cope with it the best way we can. I have written a lot of poems about my loss - in fact my book Rustle of bamboo leaves is a monument to the momory of my late wife. But life must go on...
