School shooting Haiku breaks my heart.

 Haiku honors nature.
Today however I can only speak
of what goes against my nature:
gun shots this morning
in our neighborhood high school
two teenagers dead
Yes it can and did happen here.
The school where my children went.
The school where my neighbors
children still attend.
I know these kids.
When will it stop?
 How many tear drops?

Haiku my heart


  1. I'm so very sorry!! You are all in my prayers! God bless you all!

  2. Horrible Gemma. Too close to home! I'm reading it was a suicide pact? OMG these poor girls. Why...why... I dont know what is happening to our world. (((hugs)))

  3. This breaks my heart. I don't know any words other than love...

  4. Oh dear Gemma... my heart goes out to you and your community. And to your sweet heart... may our circle hold you in this, today and tomorrow, and in the days to come. We are here and we love you.

  5. gemma dear-how can this be? girls so young, now lost to us all. my heart breaks for them, their families, for every mother and for every child. for the future that will not know them and this senseless loss.

  6. the world is a tough place to live.
    many can't save themselves...
    i recorded a 20/20 special last night. the mother of one of the columbine shooters wrote a book. what signs she missed that her son was flailing. so heart-breaking...all of it.
