Tanka: Mother

through selfless caring
honest christian charity
brought peace to the poor
with honour we recognise
the nun who became a saint

  1. I had written this with her in mind back in 2016:

    Goodness Within

    Goodness is in
    all that she does
    because within
    there never was
    a single thought
    considered not
    wholly holy.
