September Heights day 3: Loneliness

Inspired by the theme at


Today I have to write a haiku about loneliness I think this will be a tough one. Well ... I contemplated and meditated a little while on this prompt and I came with the following quote of someone (don't ask me, because I don't know the one who said this).

"Loneliness is ... having a wonderful memory and nobody to talk with".

That's loneliness how can I write a haiku on loneliness? I have searched for some inspirational pictures and came up with this picture:

Loneliness
Surely this prompt isn't easy ... I need some other inspiration sources ... So I have taken another inspiration source ... music



A song by Laura Pausini, Loneliness ...

a lonely flower
my companion for one night -
tears on my pillow


tears on my pillow
I will be dreaming alone
a lonely flower


This one is a re-make of one of my first haiku in English. Well I see you all tomorrow.
