Sensational Haiku Wednesday: Comfort

Join the fun!


He wrote the order
for comfort measures only.
Death was imminent.

Compassionate care;
Alleviating the pain.
we wait and we pray.

Divine Mercy prayed
with complete and utter faith
for a peaceful death.


"Eternal father,
In Whom mercy is endless,
look kindly on us!"

How beautiful...and timely in my case. We just had another death in the family in which we waited for a time, praying and watching. God bless.

Amazing, what you can do with haiku, Polly. This one is sad...I hope it is not reflecting events too close to home for you.

Susan Deborah said...

Death is always peaceful.

Nice one on comfort, Polly.

Joy always,
Susan

Very nicely done. Very 'comforting' and soothing.
Peace and hugs, dear friend.

This is a wonderful set of haiku, Sis. It reminds me of the way my mother-in-law went.

I hope I go fast. Really fast. Last year friends of my mother had just left a dance, and he dropped dead just outside the door on his way home. That's the way to do it.

A copy of this poem should be given to everyone waiting for a change of dimensions.
