  1. I am wondering if 'branded' is in a good sense or evil intentions??

    1. I was thinking about how some people come into your life, maybe just for a short time, and change you forever. Something about who they are or what they did continues to affect you long after they are gone. It could be in a good way or a bad way.

    1. Thank you! You need a little drama in poetry sometimes.

  3. Profound and sensual. A stunning haiku.

  4. Branding suggests a kind of ownership or possession! That could be good or bad. But also branding marks do fade with time! A powerful haiku!

  5. Very passionate haiku ~ It's a good metaphor to use ~


I would love to know what you think. Constructive criticism is more than welcome.
