Haiku Friday: Binding Our Wounds


Her class walks our way,
Trailing sweaters, looseleaf, and
New library books.

She has a purple
Dot on her chin from art class.
One shoe is untied.

My selfish heart sings:
She is mine, all mine, still mine.
And then I break. Mine.

Grieve. Learn. Act.
President Obama’s Response to Connecticut School Shooting
How to Talk to Kids about Violence

  2. hug her for me

  3. I know….

  4. Amen.
