Missing Them, Still


For this challenge, write about change and the wistful sadness around that change. Be brief - no more than 150 words.  Try to write in the Japanese style of brevity and minimal description.  



1948 Ralph & Ona


no need for clocks
no need for watches
death comes on its own time frame
like a thief in the night
stealing your most precious possessions

  3. Dearest Helen,
    Guess such kind of sentiments hit us a lot harder when we start living indoors during fall/winter. It makes us also look inwards into our soul... and there they reside - forever!
    Hugs,
