Submitted to SiS’s Daily Haiku Challenge: http://pendownmythought.blogspot.com/p/haiku-challenge.html Today’s theme (February 3) is Mother.
I Will Never Forget
my aged mother
does not know what day it is
never forgets me
The title is drawn from the biblical book of Isaiah in which God’s love is described as that of a parent: “I will never forget you, my people. I have carved you in the palm of my hand. I will never forget you, I will not leave you orphaned, I will never forget my own.” (loose translation)
