Flowers for Kris and Today’s Haiku

altar-flower-10-2016

We lost my sister Kris six years ago.  My brother-in-law Den had these flowers placed on the alter at church this weekend in her memory.

My memories of her lately have been when we were young.  She was 9 years older than me but still found things we could enjoy together despite the age difference.

One memory I have is of her and I watching spooky movies, just the two of us.  Our younger brother was too little for spooky movies and we waited until he went to bed.  We shared a huge bag of chocolate chip cookies dipped into short glasses of lemonade as we settled in for spooky movies until I fell asleep.

Here is my Haiku:

  • our expectations
  • satisfied with shared terror
  • and sister giggles

Love and miss you Kris!
