Celia Downey: Robert Stone Haiku touches nurses' hearts

Celia downey writes:

Mr. Stones' Haiku touched many Nurses' hearts today:
"When your dog fears you,
"your church going and long prayers
"are bullying sham.

--Robert Stone, Saturday, 31 March 2018."
We realize the most vulnerable in our society are often neglected and abused, used for manipulation in many ways. We see it, we recognize it, we get it.

This vulnerable population includes all lives who have no voice. - CD

Thanks, Celia Downey:. There's profound wisdom every day in Mr. Stone's haiku, and in your critique. Thanks for letting readers know how it touched you and those in your profession. - EW

Mr. Stone has now contributed haiku daily for 2390 days on CM, carried each day in the Today section. For today, Today - SATURDAY with CM - 31 Mar 2018.
