What I feel here is death. Tears, and ashes to ashes, dust to dust. I need to know. Beautiful write, Maureen.

A little birdie told me it's a Haiku. I'm falling in love with the form, suiting my brief style, appreciating how much must go in to writing 17 syllables to compete with all other (longer) forms in a contest, win or lose enjoying the challenge. Hugs my friend <3
