Deeply touching haiku, Meri. Kneeling quietly. Reminds me of the verse,"Be still, and know that I am God."

Your words and photo cause such a strong emotional response - very moving both.

The haiku doesn't always work for me. But this one is quite beautiful.

This is a beautiful, heart-full sentiment. Somehow my happy-happy comment doesn't match. But still...

Have I visited yet and told you how thrilled I am that you are playing along with me in the swap? Well, I am. I'll be sending an email in an hour or so. Yay! Thanks so much for participating. Blessings to you, my friend. ~ Relyn

This is especially poignant after reading your above post about the child who lost his Life. So much sadness.

it is a wonder for one to hold the world's sorrow, a heavy burden that would make one kneel.. the foto folds around the words as if in confirmation....
