One Deep Breath-The Faces of Humanity

Cherished young life
experiences unfold
promise to fulfill


I had an unexpected opportunity to visit with my friend Cara today (you can read more about Cara here) and was reminded once again what a bright light she shines into the lives of her family and friends.

What a gorgeous face!! And such a touching story and haiku to go with it. Cara means friend in Irish, I think.

Beautiful haiku for a beautiful girl. I recognized her immediately from the picture you posted earlier this summer. So much promise in those eyes.

What a unlifting story. Being the mom to an adopted daughter, this really hit me. I too, have always wanted the birth mom to know her child was doing well.
Sounds like Cara is having a great life. Thanks so much for sharing your haiku and story.
