The young boy
Unknowingly haunts his bedroom
His teddy,
Given to him at birth,
He does not understand
How he cannot clutch his soft fur.
His parents leave it in his room,
As they fix the broken shelf every night.

(inspired by the comment by Adam Stone)

    This is really nice… and very clever… I love how there is so much going on, and yet the image is quite simple… There could be so many different stories this picture tells, however, to me, it tells the story of a young boy unknowingly haunting his bedroom. This is his teddy, given at birth, and he doesnt understand how he cannot clutch its soft fur. His parents leave it in his room… and everynight they fix the shelve that is broken…

    Its lovely and i really like its softness… Very well done :-)

  • Thank you for your comment, and I love your story; it is well told with strong imagery! You’re a very good writer! RedBubble is such a great place to meet creative individuals :)
