    I wasn't 100 percent sure of your meaning. I had two interpretations in my mind. But I sure did like this one, Craig!! Congrats for your win.

    Dear Craig - She has become the baby born out of dementia? Such a puzzler I think. A sad one at that. When my sweet husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer, his first granddaughter was born. And so it goes. love, Kathy

    oh wow....powerful senryu....great write Craig, it packs a punch!

    Enjoyed reading this one today..I have noticed that in families around the time of a great decline of an elderly or a death that a child will be born..I am glad that I chose this one to read today..Thanks for the visit to my page..I use French Tarragon sometimes which has a Licorice taste to me..I bought a plant this year called Mexican Tarragon which had a Licorice taste..I tasted one leaf to see if it did taste like French Tarragon..I then looked it up..It is somewhat like LSD so it said.Sara
