the scars show no shame

  7. How true is your poem and lovely. The Teddy and the quote are so
    good and confirm the message of scars.

  9. Eugenia, I absolutely love the contrast going between your poem (which reads more serious on its own) and the picture of the adorable teddy bear. Can I ask, what was your inspiration?

    • Reena’s prompts are always a good challenge and I find addressing her prompts with writing a haiku (or other forms of poetry) deems the challenge even more interesting for me. I like to make a point in a very few words.

      I don’t think of scars as being ugly but rather a sign of strength and ultimately, survival. The image kept the mood of the poem on the light side, IMO.

      Thank you for your delightful comment. πŸ™‚
