Wow the power in so few words is amazing. The weight of these words leave their mark, and there is a whole story to be told lurking in the shadows.
Also an awesome image.

Thanks, John. I was trying to make the bare bones of a story… The photo, which I can’t take any credit for, is amazing. Really talented guy.

Evocative and sparing poetry is difficult to do. Rachael makes it look easy.
Thanks again, Matt 🙂
Ah! Rachael! I am finding it hard to come up the words to tell you the impact of this writing! It is stunning. It is so full of emotion…you take us to sooooo many places with 10 words!!! Brilliant! ❤
Ah! Thank you sweet Lorrie. Not being able to find the words is the ultimate compliment. I feel like like that about Frederic’s extraordinary writing. ❤
I couldn’t agree more!!! I so enjoy your writing…thank you for sharing your heart! ❤
You are amazing to pack in a story into so few words. This was wonderfully done.
Thank you. After years of writing short stories I find it satisfying to pare down to an absolute minimum. A reminder of how I have often used too many words… 🙂
Wow, this is powerful, Rachael! And I feel like it can be interpreted in numerous ways. Is it a ring never worn, or one recently removed? Thought provoking, as always, my friend!
Ah! Thank you. I have no answers with this one, except perhaps thinking it is not a haiku! And that’s fine!
PS. Hope you’re enjoying the freedom from writing on WP. All the best with your novella. x
Thanks, Rachael! This week has been a bit crazy, so I haven’t found much time to write. Maybe this weekend, though. 🙂
The words …the words hit me so hard …❤❤❤
A biiiig hug to your open heart ❤ ❤ ❤
Perfect! I have no other words 🙂
Thank you, Laine. I think the speechless comments move me most of all.xxxxx
