Haiku for May 13

I splash cold water
on my face. The young dog sniffs
at the old dog's grave.

My heart goes out to you. No matter how old, no matter how ill - it breaks our hearts to let them go.

So sorry, Chas. Our family went through it in February. We were sad and we still miss them. Just grateful for the time we had. Comfort and peace to you...
