Haiku for Judy

snow drops 3

she turns away
from tear drops, sheds old leaves;
breaks out new buds

My dear blogging friend Judy at Just Enjoy Him is fighting cancer. Her strength, courage and beauty inspire me. I've added the pink star to the sidebar to show my support of her and her family in this fight. This one's for you Judy:

"Flying toward thankfulness, you become
the rare bird with one wing made of fear,
and one of hope."

With tears of gratitude, I thank you.

I'm overwhelmed. Truly. I love you for this (and so much more).

What a gorgeous haiku. And the Rumi one, too. Wow. Sending thoughts of prayer, hope, and strength to Judy.
