Sedoka Poem Contest Winner 

cool hands touch fevered
brow to bring bit of comfort
child smiles and sleeps peacefully

hands touch wrinkled face
as last goodbye is whispered
parent finds eternal rest

Writing Prompt
Write a sedoka poem. A sedoka consists of two unrhymed three-line stanzas, each with a syllable count of 5 - 7 - 7.
Often these stanzas go at the same subject from different perspectives, but that is not a requirement.
