In Life A Haiku

In Life

 

Time and people pass

Among our hearts, souls, and minds

Kindness is their gift

 

Mankind’s treasure chest

During sorrows and triumphs

In Winters and Springs

 

In Life our shared vow

Is compassion endowed

A good gift to bring.

      Thank you;

      “Humankind is a good suggestion but it has one too many syllables to be a true haiku.
      Other options I thought of were, human’s or people’s, but I did not like the flow of these words as much.
      I will consider changing the word.

      Thank you.
      Love you,
      Delaina
