Emotion: Lonely

Lonely, a photo by Fergiemoto on Flickr.  (click on photo to enlarge)

Calm, cool water
embracing each drop of rain
The lake hides my tears

Expanding on my last post about “loneliness” versus “aloneness” I’m using this photo to represent both being alone and being lonely.  By the way, does anyone know what kind of bird this is?

(I’m using one of my artwork “tools” again to help address emotions.  See my posting on Addressing Emotional Pain #2 – Tools.)

    Lovely post and photo! I am not sure but I think it’s a Greater Scaup..some small dabbling duck. 🙂

    Ah I feel for the little guy. And I’m sorry, but I don’t know the name. He’s adorable though.

    Perhaps a Lesser Scaup; similar ones lived in brackish water lake (Galveston, TX area) & for unknown reason were called Grebes by locals…

    Alone can be happy but lonely is sad; your photo has dual perception for humans. Who knows what this precious little duck feels…

    Upon rereading this post and gazing longer at the photo, I realized that being alone and crying a little and meditating actually helps me overcome any loneliness I may feel from time to time.

    Nice post, and such a pretty image too. I take many photos lately, and I often cannot identify the beautiful birds or plants. My son took a pic of a little lizard with an orange throat. Still don’t know the name of it. (I put it on Flickr I think)

    Lonely is hard, I think. It is sad. Being alone is fun, but lonely, not fun at all.

    It may seem that way to you, based on your haiku; however, for me this pic signifies at-oneness for that little duck (I’m sure it’s a duck, but don’t know it’s name) — this is its natural environment, where they belong. The duck may be alone in the image, but won’t be for long after returning to the group. This image has many wonderful abstract qualities to it, as seen in the melding of colours and waves within the water. A beautiful painting.
    PS: A book for you: Aloneness by Osho.
