Haiku You

This month, moments to grasp for my own self have been fleeting. No time to draft rambling poetic stanza or collate my photos into albums…but I did source a few nuggets of time to merge poetry with images.

The brilliance of Haiku should never be understated in its concise beauty of word entwined to conjure up an engaging story, a provocative image, an emotive feeling or simply joy in seventeen syllables.The brilliance of Haiku should never be understated in its concise beauty of words entwined to conjure up an engaging story, a provocative image, an emotive feeling or simply joy in seventeen syllables

I do not begin to post that my sporadic Haiku musings, accompanied by my photos, serve as anything other than a creative outlet for my oft-foggy brain. I defer to the Haiku masters of Matsuo Basho, Kobayashi Issa and Ravi Shankar and others. Yet, there is a creative release I recognise in myself simply by visualising the story in one of my photos and wishing to convey its depth with narrowly-chosen nouns, verbs and (considered a writing-crime by some) the inclusion of adjectives.

Off to ramble, start

The woman, the wheat, the walk

Into bramble, end

Women, stomp your boots!

Imprint soles on dried park earth

Leaves, grass—smile to self.

Study in scarlet:

Thameside selfie, young yet poised,

to upload, to share.

Freshened eyes today — time to go twist words around my photos. Thanks for reading. DBI
