    You write excellent haiku, Debbie. Haiku is not one sentence chopped up into 5:7:5. Not all get it right. You have got the cutting down to a T. The mother is the one who used to tend to everyone's needs. Nature (wildflowers) -as in Mother Nature - has taken over tending the well deserved rest of the mother. Like all good haiku, it has a special meaning to each who reads it. Also, you have succeeded in attaining the desired pivot: "- wildflowers grow//mother's grave lies (sic) untended by hands"X

    Is it okay to speak about what I see inside, my own aha here, see if what I see is what you meant? Is it haiku-crude? I love this. LOL. should have said that first. My aha is that you are speaking of more than wildflowers. That the children themselves are running wild, growing... so, is it my perspective distorting your intent, or did I see something ... deep? Hope your weekend is going well, ours is packed. Hugs, CYndi--thanks for the smiles you sent.
