Season of the Heart
Feel excitement in the air
Kids eyes will sparkle
The "Holidaze" will have come and gone by our next Haiku date.
The hustle and bustle and excitement and yes, even stress, will be over.
Santa will have zipped through the sky bringing much happiness to many small hearts.
Candles will be lit, gifts exchanged, love given freely by those who have - to those who have not.
Those hours of holiday smiles and love are wonderful.
Throughout this time I will also be remembering those mothers who may not be feeling all this excitement, those mothers who have lost a child. Their heart may hurt, perhaps just momentarily, wishing for and remembering that eye sparkle they will never see again. Because no matter how hard a mother tries to put it all behind, it is always there, that crack in the heart.
Do not let these words put a damper on your holiday spirit. Instead, say a prayer for those mothers who experience a twinge of sadness among all the glitz and glamour. There are many...and many.
They are mothers we know here on our blogs and websites.
They are relatives and friends.
They are on the news every day.
Even Mary was one.
I say this as an explanation for the collage art I created below.
As I worked, this picture just came out of nowhere
and put itself together in my mind as I drew and cut and pasted
seemingly without rhyme or reason.
A heart filled with love is so vulnerable...and so good.
The Birth and Death of a Mother's Heart
