I totally screwed up my photo album looking for old pictures. When we bought the new computer last year, we saved everything to an external hard drive as well as to discs. Now, since I didn’t label every photo, I have to open up a file and search for what I’m looking for. In this latest search, I wasn’t looking for anything in particular. I just wanted a nice photo that spurred some thought for todays Haiku My Heart Friday. See more photos and read fabulous Hailku at Rebecca's place, recuerda mi corazon
I found a picture. It was from not that long ago, a couple of years at the most. My Mom, along with my brother and sister, came to visit us when we rented a summer cabin for a couple of weeks at Lake Sissabagama near Stone Lake, Wisconsin. I remember her enjoying herself while her Great Grandkids played and swam in the lake. I enjoyed this memory and decided I would make my Mom the subject of this weeks Haiku.
It was summer, mid July in fact, but you’ll never find Carmelina without a sweater or jacket. In this photo, she’s sitting inside as we prepare to celebrate our oldest Grand daughter’s birthday. This is for you, Mom.
Wasn’t long ago
We enjoyed her loving ways
Now, her spirit lives
Six months. It was a couple of days beyond six months ago that my Mom traveled on beyond the star nation. We love her and miss her, think of her often and will forewver. And we have wonderful memories to remind us to love one another.
I will be leaving at the crack of dawn on Friday morning. I’ll post this and be away. I regret not being able to visit you to share your photos and Haiku. I’ll return on Sunday night. I’ll be alone on my motorcycle enjoying some moving meditation along the shores of the Great Lake Superior.
May all of you enjoy peace.
