#112 of 365 – 3 Haiku about Forgiveness and Growth

3 Haiku about Forgiveness and Growth


one letter written

to a sixteen year old girl

forgiving myself



a deep, shaky breath

her throat tightens up; eyes sting

hard asking for help



mother spoke lowly

daughter just listened; painful

memories lifted
