FOWChallenge-Orphan

orphan

a child whose parents are dead

At my Mother’s funeral in 2006,

a friend approached me and said

that we were both orphans, now.

Not something I had thought of

or would have said.

Sadly, this little cub was less than twelve months away

from losing it’s mother when this photo was taken,

making it an orphan in the animal world I suspect.

We never knew if it and its sibling survived.
