Haiku Heights - Pain

maple tree, 
bare of leaves and children's voices,   
listens as the bell tolls  


     Grace @ Everyday Amazing

~0~0~

the night stings-
hornets swarming the sky- 
 empty of your blooms

  2. Beautiful. Trees have such a different 'flavor' in winter, don't they?

  3. Lovely images of winter. Agree with Brian that there's a real sense of foreboding in the bell tolling across the silence. The stinging hornet sky makes me want to stay indoors in the heat!

  4. Love the use of the word 'stings' to convey the pain of winter! Perfect.

  5. That second one is a bit of a heart-breaker, Grace. I actually teared-up reading it.

    So glad to be back on your Everyday Amazing, work has me not blogging so much, but it's a treat to be here.

    Hope you and yours are having fun. I bet your daughter is excited this time of year.

  22. You nailed the theme on "the night stings - hornets swarming the sky.' Wonderful!

  23. For whom the bells toll is sad when children are involved. Coupled with night stings both conjure pain hard to endure! Nicely Grace!
