Monday Morning Haiku and Waka – November 24, 2014


Transformation collage


slow evolution
from seed into red rose hips
moments of perfection

changing moments
a life an age – a world
– evolution

(c) G.s.k. ’14

… and Wind Spirits:

on the sheets* they fly
whispering in tinging song
wind butterflies

wind sprites whisper
through the valley at night –
shaking windows

rippling waves
the Sylphs play on the lake –
sail boats seem to fly

(c) G.s.k. ’14

In sailing, a sheet is a line (rope, cable or chain) used to control the movable corner(s) (clews) of a sail.

  1. Love the “wind sprites whisper”… and the images are great, I think I see the One Four Challenge here, nicely presented as collage (what programme/app did you use for that?)


  2. Very nice series, Georgia. That last one I could see and feel the Sylphs lifting me on trapeze sailing…nicely done, Cara. The first part is very deep, I got to that prompt too late for the last vision but may do it anyway…work got in the way.


  3. First of all, having followed the image via the One-Four Challenge, I love how you’ve collaged them here. Very striking — 😀

    And the haiku series are magnificent — from seeds to rose hips, and so many wonderful images of those sylphs!

    Great post!
