  4. Nice Haiku and picture to compliment it.

  5. so very beautiful this 🙂

  6. sometimes, yes..
    but, you always have us!

  7. I love the texture in the image. The poem is filled with loneliness.

  8. Very powerful photo and prose combo. 🙂

  9. Oh yeah, the emptiness can creep up on us. You’re not alone in feeling that way.Hugs to you XX

  10. very nice use of the prompt. emptiness can creep in from time to time. hope all is well. have a great day.

  11. Thanks everyone for your kind words and for visiting MPP. Life is feeling quite full lately, in a number of ways but as Sel says, we all have our “empty” moments/times don’t we? Sometimes the spirit feels empty even when life is busy and good.

    I’ll be around to visit all of you very soon. A full day on the way here, that doesn’t allow for ‘puter time! 😉

    Hugs, G

  12. Sometimes empty is a good thing – it leaves a space for filling! Love this haiga!

  13. Hi Sue, I like your positive spin on this work. And it’s so true! Hugs, G

  14. the sight of the first leaf falling can be disheartening… summer is passing quickly and fall clicks it’s heels…

  15. Indeed, it can. But I think that emptiness leads to something new and strong and better. Emptiness is like bein fallow, I think. We must accept the gift of time.

  16. Love the image of the fallen leaf.

  17. well said
    life can feel empty
    until that spacious freedom returns
    to fill the emptiness with unlimited possibility.
    I just write this because I am just stepping into the delicious space of being single and free, open ended possibility. Funny how we all interpret what we read through our own perceptions.

  18. Yes, life can feel empty. It is negative if lonely and closed. If open to possibilities, it can be beautiful.

    Beautiful Haiku. Touched.

  19. Hi Ms. Pie, I LOVE fall so the first leaves falling make me happy. I am not a hot weather fan and where we live, the summers are scorchers now. 😦

    Hi SandyC, Now that’s a comment I can relate to. Sometimes we need to “empty out” all the trash that’s cluttering our thoughts and start thinking clearly again, about where we are headed. Right on Sandy! 😉

    Hi Twitches, I noted that after I took the pic actually. I think it’s a very interesting photo. Welcome and thank you.

    Hi Tammie, So very true. And isn’t it amazing how we read the right info. at the right time, when we are open and really being perceptive. Good luck with the new journey Tammie, many hugs to you.

    Hi Harshad, Welcome. I totally agree with what you are saying. I wrote this not as a sad comment on life but just the reality. We can’t always feel abundant can we? But as SandyC says above, it leaves us open to new possibilities. Again, I couldn’t agree more.

    Happy Thursday to everyone, G

  20. Beautiful Geraldine! You sure captured empty~ I read what you had to say also and so true about empty times in our lives. It doesn’t mean our lives are empty if we feel empty now and again does it? Have a wonderful day and weekend~~ Hugs!
