John, this is poignant, touching...oh so sad. It breaks my heart.
Yes, indeed. You have captured the feel of the image, in my opinion.Heart wrenching.
thought provoking,love it.
What a heart-wrenching poem. I can almost see the sadness in the posture of the girl in the picture. Very well done!Here is my week 8 story: http://charleslmashburn.wordpress.com/2011/08/18/amber-waves-of-grain/
i like how you wrote this with the photo prompt in mind. what a heartfelt poem.
interesting blog title, by the way :)
A snippet from real-life ... sad ... a spot-on interpretation of the prompt though !~MISH~http://writer-in-transit.co.za/bluebell-sss-prompt-no-8-blind/
Very sad, but very true for many young women. Well done!
powerful piece with stark realism... wonderful!
So moving, and makes me wonder how I would be if I lost 1 of my 4 boys to war.The photograph adds so much, and I think it prompts more empathy from the reader for the mom.
