“Sun Will Rise” a tribute haiku

As with so many people, the death of Robin Williams has jarred me. Being in the level of darkness he must have felt, greatly saddens me. It’s a place I feel deserves no harsh judgement. Pain is pain and with that pain, compassion is needed. I am grateful for his life and for the light […]
