aged hands shouldn’t have to beg
at younger hearts’ gates

    This same image was used to accompany a haiku about hands saddling a horse, the rough exteriors hiding a tender heart in another blog I follow. I am equally impressed by your haiku calling us to remember to graciously and generously care for the elderly without waiting for them to ask. Wonderful, Lili. You are a real treasure.
