The Rest



                                      rain begins to fall
                          sorrow borrowed from teardrops
                                   ash and dust look on

A glimpse of eternity, encapsulated in your haiku. May the Force be with you! Blessings, Gershon

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

Some rainfall does have a certain sadness about it, but mostly rain makes me happy. Growing up in West Texas, I can certainly appreciate the last line. I don't quite "get" the title, but really good piece, 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
