it's fine to use pencil...
Oh, that's the spirit...in fact I witnessed it last year about same time in my In-Laws place.. fire had finished everything... I have a post on the experience... here: http://rameshsood.blogspot.com/2010/06/ah-hope-stands-smiling-osi-prompt-dawn.htmland the eldest stood and said, " well, will have to rebuild..lets start". This is true..and they are half way through..touch wood.. thanks for writing this..
I can't even imagine how I would face the total destruction of everything I'd worked for. I admire that kind of perserverance.
This is an apt and hopeful work. Thanks for sharing.
Wonderful Haiku it's true it's in the human experience we pull it together and persevere. My prayers go out to all those who have been affected by all these devastating tornadoes
This is my idea of expressive haiku. Well done indeed.
what else can one do but grin in the face of destruction.
A most expressive example of 'guts'.
A well-captured spirit of determination and faith.~Paula
So brave of him to grin in the face of that.Please come check out my three words
Wonderful take on the prompt. I love the resilience in the face of disaster. Wonderful =)
Excellent :) Short, great words to convey the destruction, and I love the spirit of the thing: we built it the first time, we can do it a second time, or however many times we need to, because a home is more than the building we keep our stuff in.
