Alone and Lonesome -- a 'Carp Diem Special' Haiku

Alone, lonesome

I'm trapped in my pot
Left alone, hungry for love
Take my flower, please

Today I'm linking with (link) -- Instructions are here: 
Carpe Diem Special #117, Tomas Tranströmer's 3rd "a mother of stone"
The hope:  be inspired "to write an all new haiku in the spirit
of Tranströmer (imprisoned) and with a touch of romance. Have fun!"

It reminds us of a song by Elvis Presley "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" :)
