My father

On the consecrated field
where your ashes are laid
one lone rose petals red.

I should add that this photo is in fact where his ashes were spread.
It just took me 2 1/2 years to come up with the haiku...


  1. Awww. Very cool haiku and perfect image to go with it. I love haiku. I can see doing a whole journal around poetry.

  2. This is beautiful Sox. I love it. I really love the image to go with it too. I do a lot of poetry also.

  3. A thoughtful poem to remember your father.

  4. Two and a half years isn't too long to wait for the right words.
