          1. Mom has gone to Cape Town, burial of loved uncle, last big link to her dad, sad in sense to not be there, but glad too, she is spending golden moments with her family talking about times when they were all kids, I think it is also important to refresh those memories and even create new ones of those times. Happy for her.

    1. Thank you Patty. I was just saying that sometimes I channel the pain from the past, because it makes the joy I feel today even better. I can write some of the saddest, deepest poetry sometimes. It just comes out, all on its own. 😀

  1. I know exactly where you’re coming from with this one, Colleen.

    I do the same and find that opening old wounds sometimes can inspire me to write something. Then when looking back on the event after writing, it makes me so thankful for where I am today.

    A great haiku straight from the heart. ❤

    1. Thank you Hugh. I have that place deep down inside where I put all my old “woe.” Sometimes I drag it out and everyone is shocked. I like to think that sometimes it is good to look back so you appreciate what you have now. I am glad you understand. ❤

      1. Oh, I do. To be honest I am always looking back. I enjoy it and realise that when doing so I am also going to remember the bad parts, but then I tell myself that I’m still here and that I have a life now with a perfect loving partner and that I could not be happier. OK, maybe everything is not perfect, I’m enjoying life 🙂

        Carry on enjoying, Colleen.

        1. Hugh you are just the best. Not many people understand this method to our madness. 🙂 I so agree. Ron has always been my best friend and I could not be happier either. Interesting how when we tap into that old pain we write more deeply. That is our wisdom. ❤ Keep enjoying life and sharing your wonderful thoughts.

  2. This Haiku was just so powerful Colleen..Its a strange thing how love can build you up and yet when in the wrong company it causes you crushing pain…It felt so wonderful to read the feeling so wonderfully expressed in this Haiku. Simply beautiful!
