filled with love
her lasting footprint
in this world

This post is dedicated to our dear haiku friend Kristjaan from Carpe Diem Haiku Kai who lost his mother to Covid-19.
Our thoughts are with him and his family at this difficult time and with all of you who recently lost a loved one.
Wishing you a peaceful Sunday and a blessed week ahead,
with love from Xenia xxx
