  3. Yes, in the prompt the walls are stained. But as you point out, so all too often is the soul...

  10. great haiku! Love the scary sense of being on the inside of the soul.
    Did not know of this Andrew Wyeth painting. It looks like his son... or some relative. Revenants aren't usually that good looking. Love the obscure face.

  15. Thank you for your kind comment about my poem. Your haiku is wonderfully deep and dark, complementing the image well. It's the second one I am reading today that speaks of "exorcism". We do tend to do that with our past relationships, don't we?
