stump with fungus caledonia

even the trees
cloud-drunk
after three days of rain

Linked to Carpe Diem #748: Clouds, where our host Chèvrefeuille has shared a wealth of haiku with us.  Here are a few – please read the original post to share them all:

after the rain
breathing deeply
white valley clouds

on the river’s bank
already it’s a moonlit night…
billowing clouds

mysterious clouds
changing images through the wind
ah! what a sight

  1. Wonderful observation, and another post in which words and image complement each other so well. In your last email you mentioned envying musical ability, but really – I do think poetry and photography might be enough 😉

    • Very glad you liked the post, Janice 🙂
      Yes, it’s my photo — I had a very blurry photo from the woods and used PicMonkey’s “graphic novel” filter — and voila! Crappy photo — rescued! 😉

      • I did hesitate to write that comment for we look up to the haiku masters so much. It was a genuine response to your haiku though. Maybe because your haiku came from lived experience it felt uncontrived and original. It leapt out me when I read the haiku sequence you posted

        • It was a “good” blush, Suzanne — so no worries — I was quite honored. 🙂
          It’s great to be able to share these experiences — filtered through my own vision and not necessarily through a classical filter. (If that makes sense?)
          Thank you, Suzanne 🙂
