  1. Sadly at such a young age! Nicely MMT!


  2. What a sad haiku … I imagine that the child that played here once has past away … strong emotions overwhelm me … brought memories to me of my brother who passed away almost 20 years ago.

  3. Wow. That last line is a gut punch.

  4. Yes, reflective of life. Image and words are stark and true.

  5. Sometimes the simple things makes the best shots. I love this and swung in many just like it.

  6. Very zen like photo ~ gorgeous ~ lovely haiku ~ carol

  7. Oh …… this touches a painful place. No parent should have to endure this kind of loss.

  8. Strong words. I feel a sense of sadness here. Great photo though.

    Have a good weekend.

  9. Too many little ones die young. The world can be such a sad place… your photo really captures the emptiness families feel when a child dies.

  10. a difficult moment to work through…your haiku and image, perfect for the challenge.

  11. Love how the chain of the empty swing dominates the foreground. Moving image and haiku.
