"Everyday in every way I’m getting better and better" - Emile Coue
the bells tolling in the first is rather chilling....and the hornet stings of night with out them in the second is really cool and emotive as well.....nice grace....smiles.
Beautiful. Trees have such a different 'flavor' in winter, don't they?
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!
Love the use of the word 'stings' to convey the pain of winter! Perfect.
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.xoxo
A slight chill in the beauty of your words. Nice one.
'winter' of words - Pain of loneliness! amazingly expressed!!
O my. The first moved me to tears. I identify.
the first one creates a creepy cold atmosphere of grief. Those bells...Nice work!
pain in spanish is dolor! this sounds really nice and I love haikus!!xo
Beautiful ... the scenery is so well portrayed in your words !!!
Great capture indeed here at your feed, liked the hornet use as well, hope your weekend is swell.
These images of pain and loss are so vivid! Outstanding work!
I liked the second one especially - so stinging & poignant. Well written!
Very vivid, poignant images of pain, Grace! Loved the first one especially!
beautifully sad, both haiku toll for me....
Very well written ... hauntng
Grace,I don't know if you remember that I titled a painting after one of your poems...I don't know how to email you ... I used it on a post for Becca Givens "Trees"You can see the.“Clinging to You”, November 18, 2011 post “Clinging to You”, November 18, 2011 at http://www.siggiofmaine.wordpress.com
..great haikus Grace... you really mastered it... smiles...
The first one speaks volumes to me!Heavy breath near cold fireplace
Pain captured so well. Loved both haiku. and beautiful photography Grace :)
Both were lovely, but my preference is for the first :)
Grace, Wonderful, as ALWAYS
You nailed the theme on "the night stings - hornets swarming the sky.' Wonderful!
For whom the bells toll is sad when children are involved. Coupled with night stings both conjure pain hard to endure! Nicely Grace!Hank
