Another Memory

I haven't been able to write or post much lately. Between vacation, funeral, home renovation projects, and now a wedding (leaving tomorrow for that), time has been limited.

Here are a couple I found among the journals of Mom. The notebook is titled simply, HAIKU, Marie Keim. I didn't even know she wrote haiku.

Hearing the clock tick
Knowing the path gets shorter
To eternity.

The freshly baked bread
Tantalized the neighborhood
With its aroma.
Sometimes we learn so much more about the lives of those we love when they are living in a higher place.


  1. That is beautiful. Years after my mom died, I found some poems that she wrote when she was young. Its amazing how much that can tell you about someone. Have a good trip!

  2. u know poetic is ur blood.
