silent gaze

Dukkha -- dissatisfaction, trauma, or suffering --  arrives uninvited.

Someone writes saying cancer has spread, he’s in pain, feels heartbroken.

I take it in and reflect with haiku:
(a haiku for D.) 
when heart sees itself —
enormous chunks of ice fall
to flowing water
This seems to be how we find our experience as time continues.

It has its limits.

As we do.
