There aren't words that can be spoken. When at Christmas, your heart is broken. Your Haiku shines deep and dark. At a time when, what is that? Hark. We hear the angels sing. Peace. :)

Your haiku reminds us that as we celebrate a birth we also mourn a death. May you find love and warmth as you grieve the lost. Hugs and love from me.
