Daily Haiku: Gray Abandonment

In this daily haiku, “Gray Abandonment.”

I find it sad when I see old abandon buildings, like the one in this digital art piece. A piece of history lived there. I imagine of the laughter, of the happiness, despite hardships endured. It was a small, but deserving life. Yet, despite it all, it held stories. Births of lives, of deaths. It breathes a story. A daily haiku.

Image of In this daily haiku,

I wanted to embrace the gray. I want to feel the light that once filled the shadows with laughter. To hear the patter of small, of bigger feet. To smile upon the faces that embraced this time and space of gray abandonment.

Daily haiku: Gray abandonment

a gray sky holds tears.
Skeletons lurk in shadows.
Stories left untold.
