    Orphan’s lament! Kidding: just the title of a song by Huun Huur Tu, a band of throat singers from Tuva!:) Thanks for stopping on my blog and for your thought-provoking comments. Happy New Year!:)

    I would love to hear throat singers from Tuva, some day.

    This one was a bit of a risk. At the risk of sounding foolish or forced, “Orphaned” is actually the word that hit me when that wind slammed into my face. There is a reason, perhaps a buried reason. It has something to do with vulnerability.

    Forsaken, forgotten, and abandoned were other options that occurred to me later, but I decided to stick with the first, for better or worse.

    Thanks browsing my blog. I hope you find some that interest you.

    I wondered about “orphaned”, one does tend to take a word like that more literally.

    ‘orphaned’ is the perfect word here. You couldn’t have said it better.

    Good to find your blog. Bookmarking you..

    Got here from Borut’s.

    Instead of leaving my poetry writing blog, I linked here my book reviewing blog. Sorry about the faux pas!

    I’m not a poet, but I like the word orphaned. I think it’s perfect.

    Borut – Thanks for the video link. I loved it and added it to the original post.

    Adriaan – I meant it literally. I felt orphaned! Not sure why.

    gautami tripathy – Thanks for your reaction. I look forward to browsing both your blogs!

    Geri – No need to be a poet. It’s a human thing. Thanks.
