    • Lovely, Pamela! I also wrote a haiku about a river stone and a pocket last year for the Sketchbook haiku thread, right after visiting my parents’ grave. The topic was “cemeteries”:

      a river stone
      still warm from my pocket
      on their grave

      (Sketchbook haiku thread, Sept/Oct 2011)
