Morning Haiku and Waka – Colours (Red) – September 18, 2015

Collage Riva in Red

Collage Riva in Red

tumbling leaves
carpeting the park and streets
in crimson

[that world in red]
floating in muffled silence
lost paradise

warming fire
the licking flames burn red
turning logs black

Christmas tree
decked in red trimmed in white
childhood memories

in her passion
she paints the world red
ocean waves crash
in growing cacophony
– silence

  1. I love what you did here, cara! Red means so many different things…that photo is WoW! for lack of a better word and your love the licking flames, crimson carpet and your last …tanka is the image of my dream last night…in French ma grandmère disait, “Bon, mon rêve est effacé”…so I no longer have to wonder why I dreamed of oceans and waves.


    • Cool .. what a great comment dear. I had a the idea and want to proceed with as many colours as I can … the collage is an old collage I did back in 2013 .. used to do one collage a week for “Paint the Town Red” … a blogger’s prompt. Interesting that the tanka was the image of your dream … really cool!
