Tiring the heart--
mountains and ocean
too much beauty

my daughter
invites me to lunch
this Mother's day
just for a tender moment
she's her late mother

In my book,
Rustle of bamboo leaves

but originally published in World Haiku Review
Vol. 5, Issue 1, Spring/Summer 2005

She's my youngest daughter who a year after her mom's death invited me to brunch with her husband's family. It was so sweet of her and I love her dearly... Thanks Diana.
