a senryu set for Tuesday Platform

Saving Tears 

Have no tears for me 
Save them for your rainy day 
Sun comes to me first 

Not to be cried for 
I don't remember a thing 
Age has got my mind 

If I made you cry 
Surely you did nothing wrong 
Yes?  Then I forgive 

Twitter me today 
Tweet you back no matter.  Love
you still, save those tears

How so reassuring! When one gets supportive to someone dear to one's heart it tells on the close feelings. A tweet should be forthcoming certainly! Great lines Dr Jim!

Jim, I've been thinking about twitter and our digital age of communication too. I wonder if people with dementia even know what Twitter is?

Unconditional forgiveness! What a wonderful, reassuring and freeing thought, Jim.

Bad memory is a sure excuse not to ask for forgiveness. At least giving it is half the battle! Love.
