All religions and cultures revere their ancestors. In Christian tradition, the concept of the communion of saints—mystical union with those who have died and awareness of them as a great cloud of witnesses who have paved the way—is a powerful belief for many.

My haiku reflects that viewpoint. I have known so many witnesses who have blessed my life and while I do not experience them as some do, I routinely "feel" an attitude, grace, or strength that seems to come from one of them.

As far as writing inspiration, on a daily basis I read "Poetry Foundation," "A Writer's Almanac," and "Center for action and Contemplation"—free and inspiring of reflection.

When I call to them,
they don't always answer me.
But their blessings do.
