#281 of 365 – 4 Haiku

4 Haiku



she was getting good

outside her home jumping rope

caught in the crosshairs




death so early on

incomprehensible pain

of being left to die




his little soul, scorched

from his body, left alone

in his father’s car




do angels come to

relieve the pain of dying

for an unloved child?
