One Deep Breath- Haiku


Ritual


Praying for courage
faith in numbers holding on
innocent life lost

I remember seeing this photo and it brought a lump to my throat. Great poem, Tammy. Such a waste. :(

beautiful poem, Tammy. Multiple commenting here; I loved the picture of TK. Can't believe he is that old already. I just absolutely adore babies; treasure every minute you can with him. Congrats on another of your children deciding to go down the road of matrimony. Never a dull moment at your house, I'm sure :)

This is so appropriate, especially with all that is going on with Israel now also. I can see I have a lot of catching up to do here at chez warrior; I've missed out on a lot this week.

I find something remarkable about this picture. One white woman, one white man, the rest of the soldiers are black. I am not making any sort of judgment here. I simply noticed this and how we are all brothers in arms. I grieve for all that are lost and will be lost.
