One Deep Breathe - Autumn

The Fall of one's life
The loose ends wrapping up tight
Now hear a string break.

Annie is this your mother? It is a great picture, and I know, if it is not, you wish to see your mother walking on the beach. My thoughts stay with you, for sure. Know that, believe that.

Really moving Annie. Such a beautiful picture and words.
(I'm honoured that my words touched you too :-))

Well done Annie! Amazing :)

I saved your blog wrong on my favorites and have missed so much! I must catch up!

I love this, Annie. She's barefoot, and she must be a little cold. Was this photo taken in Britain? It's all good.

Maryellen said...

I see you are still out in the future walking the beach. Can't say as I blame you.

Sweet Annie! I've missed seeing you at cj but totally understand as I am dealing with identical issues in my life right now too... come back to us soon!

Great photo and haiku. As I am in the Autumn of my life it really speaks to me. You do sort of start wrapping of things and get rid of unimportant things.
