Pride

Lone soul in bare night

A beacon, beckoning love

Pride, in world so lost


Loneliness,

has many faces.

When finally unveiled,

invokes fragility amidst pride,

blocking one from admitting.

My reaction in the form of haiku and gogyahka to an invoking image and challenge from Sadje’s What Do You See #69.
