One Hundred Times

          open casket
          her hair still soft
          she used to brush it
          one hundred times
          before bed

  1. Lovely, Kirsten!
    And I am following your blog now.Would have become a follower much earlier, had i known it was so easy, that I could do it through Facebook! I thought a blog was required for that...stupid me!

  2. Thank you, Sanjuktaa! It's great to have you visit me here at Swimming in Lines of Haiku :)
