Once again, after a hiatus I return to Cape Diem. July is a vey busy month for me, but today a have a few spare moments.
Most of June was lost. on the 2nd, my mother suffered a stroke. She went down hill rapidly, and her funeral was three weeks later. She was 94, so I think her age stacked the deck against her. The picture shows her [standing] and her twin sister on their 94th birthday in May

Now, back to the present. The challenge of this episode is to write a classical haiku inspired by this photo.
