Beautiful girl

I love the way her nose is white on one side and brown on the other. She almost looks like she’s sneering. But, she’s much too sweet for that. Ruby is a wonderment. She’s a true comfort to us all!


Comfort (One Deep Breath)

24 Jul

My father-in-law ended his battle with cancer yesterday.  So this prompt is very timely for me, as well.  Perhaps too timely but here are some thoughts on comfort in tanka form.

 A small, thoughtful touch
Some well-chosen, loving words
Offerings of food
Balance the need to comfort
With the need to grieve alone
