My friend, Marge Shapiro has been honing her haiku skills, and they were all so good, I wanted to share them with all of you-dlj

A Few Thoughts From a Friend

I listen to the
sunshine telling me to smile.
Yelling,"Stop whining".
 
Sad eyes remember
loving arms, urgent passion,
whispers and kisses.
 
The homeless woman,.
tangled hair, smelly clothes, fat.
Once a beauty queen.
 
Imagine a world
with ubiquitous kindness,
laughing  and loving.
 
Hallways of healing.
Bodies making adjustments.
Death always lurking.

Marge Shapiro

Thank you, Dan. Ms. Shaper's work is excellent.
My favorite, and worth saving i, is:

"Sad eyes remember
loving arms, urgent passion,
whispers and kisses."
