    Eugenia: This poem makes me think of the animals who are victims of hunters out west. Thanks for staying in touch.

    So perfect in its compactness! The image is both cute and heartbreaking.

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

    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. 🙂
