early darkness

early darkness
a pain I don't want
to think about

It's a strange coincidance that you wrote this today. We just got word of the death of our daughter's father-in-law. There is a lot of pain in the family night now.

So sorry to hear that, Adelaide. You and yours will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I like this haïku very much,perhaps because I know this feeling well... I've often been pondering the question if it's good or not to think about a pain. It depends on the pain, I guess.

not my own...

at each period... the pain returns.
