A personal miscellany.
And the sharp splinters can be many things that pierce us; tongue or deed.
How powerful this is. They tell us to grow thick skins to this, yet how? I hope that the future brings love and support instead of splinters.
Just beautiful in 3 lovely poetic lines! :)
Une petite saignée pour se remettre d'aplomb.Bloodletting was used as a cure some centuries ago.Old days were not so good.
Concise and profound. Nicely done. Love the photo too.
Very succinct and so true. Great photo too.www.mypoeticpath.wordpress.com
you sure said it! a splinter as a metaphor for other sharp things...very powerful
Yes, we can bleed in many different ways. For some reason, I immediately thought of how sharp and pointed thoughtfuless words can be, words we can regret.
Oh so true.
I really like that the sounds of the words you chose feel like splinters in the skin. Nice haiku
so few words, yet thought provoking. thanks Mandy & Lori :)
So very true..ravages of time
it is a perfect portrayal of how painful a splinter of any sort can be..
Everyone got here before me and said nearly my same thoughts! Although the picture and words said wood, I perceived the pain of verbal or emotional splinters.Well done.
Really neat image. Lots of truth in this, too.
Exactly. Love this!!!!
Excellent metaphor. You can see how we all feel that.
I love what you did with this prompt. Excellent work! The emotional impact is piercing.
Old structures bleed by splintering, one splinter at a time. Piercing, painful, perplexing.Thanks
there's no bleedingfrom your gifted wounds the hurt drips on..(a corollary ma'm to ur own haiku)which i like for it's depth and delicateness..
Wonderfully imagined, created, and shared! Thank you. It took me a while but I managed to come up with an idea and posted this morning at Sacred Ruminations.Hugs and blessings,
It's not only the skin that bleeds but gets the infections!
