  1. Looks sad and lonely, far from its old vigour and lively style!!

  2. I thought this was a great haiku. It fitted the picture so well, telling a sad story of decline and loneliness.

  3. Sad and desolate images here… lovely haiku ~

  4. i love the simplicity of this.

  5. A sad sight to see. Nice write.

  6. Your photo absolutely evokes this haiku. Wind-blown vitality shut down. Really good take.

  7. A windmill no more, a past lost forever….haunting haiku.

  8. I’ve often felt rudderless. The haiku is perfect for this photo.

  9. Love the way you stripped this one to the bones!

  10. you got straight down to the point with this one! haunting haiku indeed!
