I scoop up,
my distorted face

      • Not to worry … I spent quite a while trying to find a decent photo or painting to go with this renga … I’m glad you enjoyed it … I wanted to put up credits … but the original site is for sale???


    • LOL .. actually I’m up later than usual … I’m an early riser, which is why you rarely see me at night. Glad you enjoyed the image … we are all expanding you know 😉


  1. Lovely, Cara!! Times like this I kick myself for not having kept photos of wash basins like this (sigh). I`m so glad you are up early so I can always count on a few words before I’m well tucked in.


    • Ach … your’s would be more in tuned maybe with the original haiku …. I just figured after seeing my distorted face I’d put my hands in and make some waves 😉


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
