in the darkest hour
wishing upon the morning star
just like years ago

Ese's haiku was inspired by this haiku by Kala Ramesh.

morning prayers
the rising sun between
my hands

a veil of prayer
rises before morning light
tearful .. praise

Grey haired lady has spent the last several years caring for her first born son.  First it was simply sharing a home with him pulling part of the load.  Eventually lifestyle choices caught up with him and sickness ensued.  Hospitalized on and off for weeks at a time he is rushed to ICU.  Told twice he probably would not make it.  Today she was told he has been approved for transplants.  Tomorrow he will be med-evacted over 200 miles to the transplant center. He will be in ICU to wait for a donor.  She will follow in a few days, sitting in vigil for someone else's loss.
