MORAL


old grandparents 
Fragile and broken
Sadness filled in eyes

Their youthful days
with entire vigor 
they cared for me

Today,I bring
sparkle in their lives 
I strive for them



Inspired by the theme at

  14. Little things mean a lot to them! It's only when we are not bothered that they feel sad. But the beauty of it is that they don't show their sadness! Nicely Kislaya!

  29. My response to your comment on my haiku~ "Chivalry" ;)Thank you Kislaya!!

    Is it that she cannot bear to face and see his concern for her, or still is listening to his sweet nothings or as Leo says, is not responding to his love overtures!! Beautiful painting with so many interpretations!!
