One edge
hanging over the mountain--
the Milky Way


raindrops roll down
the golden leaf
first day in hospice

I dug this old haiku for Mandy Smith when I heard she is going to a hospice. Now I don't know if it's proper or not since she passed away. My prayers and condolences to her family. May she rest in peace!
