The lonesome heart pines

lost in the barren landscape

stoic demeanor

Scorching cloudless sky

survives the parched desert heat

resilient soul

Spiked outer armor

smiles through the blistered needles

a vibrant blossom

I have written 2 haiku for Reena’s picture prompt. They can be read in continuity or as two distinct haiku.

Abusive childhood

wallflower disposition

behavior issues

Orphanage to home

contemplative reflection

family at last?
