That. Is. Great. Haiku. The second line needs a "The" to make it 7 mora but it's still great.
(Dabs a little tear) ... happy anniversary to Karl's mom and dad!
Troll: Thank you Sir. Fixed it.Pam: It was a good ceremony. A funeral at Arlington is like nowhere else. We placed their wedding rings in the niche with them. A celebration of their lives and love.
I don't well up easily, but that did it. A lovely tribute that you honored beautifully with a great haiku.
poignant. and beautiful. happy anniversary to them.
A salute to your father for his service to this country and a graceful bow to your mother who raised a family and waited long nights for her soldier to come home. Nice that they're together in such a great place in Arlington Autumn.
you're a good son and I hope they're somewhere having a lovely celebration.

Beautiful haiku as is the dedication, thank you, Karl.
All: Thank you, so much for the kind sentiments. They truly were a fine couple. Open minded and caring, there was a place of their table for anyone. They smiled, they sang, they danced and debated. All who spoke yesterday mentioned, what a fun and unique couple they were.
Well, dern--shure wish't I'd had a seat at their table, jes' onc't.But I can see how fine a folk they wuz...in YOU.
Aunty Belle: Very nice of you to say. You would have had fun. It was a big round marble thing. Hard to stain and easy to clean. So important when dealing with pasta or personalities.
Peace Be With You.
Fishy: And with you, Thanks

Aunty Belle: It's not Monday yet. What were you like the day before Christmas when you were a kid?Just kidding. It's up.
Karl,What a beautiful tribute to some people I would like to have known. They sound so like my own parents, you have inspired me to think I need to write one for them, too. At 88 they are still with us, so now is the perfect time. Thanks for your inspiration.Serendipity
