HH Prompt: Loneliness

loneliness settles
curls inside this valley, mist
sun will melt away

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    I love Haikus! Thank you for writing this, it’s almost pretty. I like the juxtaposition of loneliness with the beauty of nature.

    Lovely, Susan. Thank you.

    • Thanks, George–you are such a haiku genius, you should join in on the fun!

        Thank you, Susan. Really. Although there is something that strikes a bit too close to home in this prompt that I am loathe to explore. Even in verse. Despite the fact that writing has often been therapeutic for me. But the subject of loneliness just now is a bit too … overwhelming.

  4. Would that loneliness were as easy to melt away as applying sunshine!

    The personification of ‘curl’ really adds a mystic touch to the haiku.
    And Sun will melt away: It’s amazing how you’ve used so many figures of speech in just 17 syllables. =)

  16. Such a lovely imagine! Reminds me of autumn mornings at the cottage – I can hear the cry of the loon through the foggy lake-shroud.

  17. Patti says:

    That is so pretty. I hope the sun melts away the loneliness along with the mist.
