For Ida and Angel

Angel was the pet cow of  Ida and her grandchildren.

Passerbys would stop and pet Angel and feed her treats.

Angel recently passed away with Ida at her side as it

became obvious the time to leave was near.

RIP Angel

Kathabela Wilson, Prompt

Friday, March 20, 2015 prompt: healing the earth, healing ourselves
(All the broken things, debris,difficulties, cultural discord, how to bring a unity,
a healing with personal powers.
We have been healing these days, especially Rick,
but healing by a sensitive watchfulness.
If you look inside you can read the clouds
on x-rays as well as the sky,
see those clouds
“you are making more bones”
that is what the surgeon says.
And so like the earth and its revitalization,
we heal ourselves, the inner globes that we are,
without even trying, letting time patience,
and sensitivity succeed.
.
What do you see as healing in the earth this world, and your own being, and how to say it in your tanka?)
