Melting Mourning

Farewell, my dear friend

Tears mingle with melting snow

Rose petals scattered

Falling tears, melting snow, and scattered petals create a subtle flow and sense of transience that reflects the preciousness and impermanence of life. The images are peaceful but melancholic, evoking a quiet heartache. Yet there is beauty too in the gentle dissolution of the snow and dispersal of rose petals—a letting go that speaks to acceptance and finding solace in cherished memories that remain. The haiku seems to capture that peculiar feeling of loss—the void left behind by someone’s passing, mingled with gratitude for having them in our lives. Overall it is a poignant and resonant reflection on mourning and remembrance.
