for his funeral
flying a dozen white kites
each with a red tail

    i guess this seems a lot sadder to me than it does to your other commenters

    and it is a beautiful, poignant image

    Hmmm. Me…at a loss for words. Because I dont know where this came from. If you are sad, I’m sorry. If not, awesome haiku thought. Well, awesome, sad or not. I can see it clearly.
