The prompt for this short story was a haiku which read “Double rainbow – New parents plant rosemary, Smiling through their tears.”
Writer Torché Johnson gives us a brief and haunting interpretation of the haiku. We particularly liked the description of tears that are “unseen and dry”. The story gets its power from a sense of understatement that allows the reader to fill in the blanks in his/her own way.
