In child’s world of innocence
Lost path, lost childhood
Laughter and dreams blown away
Flower waits to bloom

“Laughter and dreams blown away
Flower waits to bloom:” The child in me is still waiting for that perfect bloom to pick, to press and dry, apply to paper, and send it out into the world again.
Haunting. Well written. Well chosen words.
Think I’ve been there.

Wow, Becca, what a poignant and touching haiku, excellent!
The pic and your words speak of something so so terrible in such a delicate way…
Wow! do hope this was not your childhood ~ always keep the ‘child within alive’ no matter the age ~ wonderful reflective haiku (A Creative Harbor)
rather sad…. lovely words of loss…and hope
What a wonderful set of haiku. That last line ‘flower waits to bloom’ is really wonderful. Nice take on Childhood. Thank you for sharing with Carpe Diem.
Beautiful words !!!
