Haiku old and new

I’ve had one of those weeks. Short-staffed at work and not feeling the best. I’ve still managed to read and write a haiku a day.

Today I’m posting two old Japanese haiku by Chiyo-ni, a female poet. The sunrise photo is mine and near where I live but the violet photo is a borrowed image. I don’t think violets could survive the heat here in the Northern Territory but I like the truth expressed in this haiku.

The last haiku is a modern one and I love how it turns your thinking around and speaks from inside the image. My photo from a few weeks ago.

Enjoy and I’ll see you all next weekend!
