Just Karma 183
(a haibun for 9/11)
Some days are slower than others. We travel less. Perhaps it
is on those days we can visit our memories and think about
what happened five, ten or fifteen years ago. Remembering
joy is only possible when we also remember sadness.
The heavy burden of those who chose to believe that they
were doing something of value by taking away so many lives
that had nothing to do with their own internal warring.
Can everyone be persuaded to believe in and pray for peace?
grasses grow and sway;
some flowers are placed on graves –
is there peace with death?
