HAIKU

And how does one sing
When it is Christmas Eve, and
You’ve just lost your wife?

Marie Elena
 
(In honor of Uncle Erwin, an artist and opera singer, who sang “Oh Holy Night” for Christmas Eve mass, after the passing of Aunt Marguerite on December 23, 1970.  Though I was only eleven, the memory of his voice remains fresh.  May they both rest in peace.)
