Abandoned by death
Life celebrated in joy
Weeping, veiled in black

    Just lovely, and so evocative. It reminds me of the song, “Long Black Veil”, and also of the sculpture of the grieving angel on the Stanford University campus.

    I love this. I had to look at your image twice as your words bring her to life.


  4. Whoa! That is a spectacularly wonderful haiku. Powerful.
