  • Thank you everyone for your prayers for Heidi. The chicken soup was delivered today at lunch. I told her about your prayers. She smiled.

  • I love how much movement there is in this haiku — the walking, the prayer, the cooking. Really quick and deep. I will add my wish for Heidi’s healing, too.

  • Clear, simple, genuine, touching. Prayers and hugs for both Heidi and you.

    I love how your lines hang in the air; distinct and separate, but related with seemingly loose but very strong connective tissue. Each piece has weight, and so does the whole.

    Praying for healing.

  • Simply beautiful. Putting feet to your prayers!

  • Touching. Adding a prayer for Heidi,too.

  • I will pray for Heidi too. May your soup have healing effects.

  • Your poem says it all. I hope that your friend is healed by hands of God.

    I love haiku and forgot all about writing it. Your few words say so much. Chicken soup will always mean healing. Thanks.
