Reply magicalmysticalteacher says: January 27, 2013 at 3:36 pm There is, I think, no more powerful image of humanity—and love, and devotion—than to see an adult holding a child’s hand, and leading that child to safety.

Delightful shift of thought in the last line! Reply Look for A Lovely Thing says: January 27, 2013 at 5:13 pm The promised land. So many possibilities in this haiku. Excellent job! Reply kz says: January 27, 2013 at 6:56 pm this is so deep, beautiful, powerful.. could mean different things to different readers but whatever it is, it’s bound to touch one’s heart Reply jrbsays says: January 27, 2013 at 7:30 pm Wow, so many possibilities. From the deep devotion parental love to some very dark places indeed. Well done! Reply JazzBumpa says: January 27, 2013 at 8:20 pm I have a granddaughter who can be stubborn and independent. So I ask her to hold MY hand and help ME. Works like a charm. I see the dark meaning and hope that is not what you intended. JzB Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: January 28, 2013 at 1:58 am Unfortunately, the dark meaning was uppermost in my mind… Reply JazzBumpa says: January 28, 2013 at 8:15 am Sorry, but that is really disturbing. On several levels.

Reply Björn Rudberg (brudberg) says: January 28, 2013 at 12:51 pm I got mostly a dark picture on this, but a hope of a promised land.
