roses lost in weeds–
her teacup filling again
with cold rain

    Vivid, poignant poem of loss. A scene of both stasis and change. The survivor or caretaker is not ready to move on, but nature inevitably does. Beautifully penned.

    A simply wonderful poem. I am always equally touched by the life stories/careers/backgrounds of contributors, which are interesting works of art unto themselves.

    broken teacup
    thorns are restored
    to the roses

    A well-depicted sense of sadness, loss and even a touch of madness here (the teacup made me think of the Mad Hatter's tea party) I really like this gothic haiku.
