Haiku on Page

life and death, never before i thought that i would be facing you both together, at the same time.

two close friends, as close to sisters as can be to me. one facing death, the other preparing to embrace a new life. one is dreadful and somber, the other eager and excited. what can be more polar opposite than those? and  i’m in the middle, watching them both, from far away.

i’m trying to feel what they’re feeling, but in the dark. i wish they’re within my touch, or that i can do something more than this…waiting, praying, hoping for the best for both. sometimes the helplessness is just too gripping. can’t say i know exactly what they’re feeling. i was never in their position. don’t know what it feels like fighting an illness so deadly, or expecting a little one. whatever it is they’re feeling, i pray that one of those feelings is peaceful.

both haiku pieces below are for each sister. be well, be strong, be faithful, my dearests. you are not alone.

your body’s changing
the chapter refuse to end
dark pages ahead


a new role ahead
excitement’s holding your hand
as you turn the page

  1. Bittersweet and poignant challenges ahead for them (obviously) and for you as their friend.

    Prayer is one of the most powerful gifts you can offer ~~ especially when things are not in our hands
