the teddy bear waits
in the deserted attic –
moths at the window

What a haunting haiku, and a haunting image as well! I was wondering if you wrote the poem and then found the accompanying image, or if you saw the image first and were inspired to write the poem?
There’s a bear who lives on a windowsill in a friend’s old barn and I feel sorry for him. It sort of grew from there into quite a long story – then I shrunk it again!
This pic kills me. I just love a good Teddy.
I think teddies should always have friends though. Preferably other teddies…:-)
Poignant to the point of pain…I’ll repeat this one aloud throughout the day until it’s a part of me. Sublime and breathtaking, dear Rachael! 😛
Thank you, Ron. I have much to learn. I have really enjoyed a number of your haiku these last few weeks. So many hit the spot! 🙂
