Image Haiku: Dog Sense

This week, I am going back into my photo files, and using images as an inspiration for haiku. I am layering words on images.

Image Haiku: Dog SenseProcess Note: This is a shot of Duke, our dog, when I was out hiking in the woods with four 11 year old boys. He runs ahead, comes back to me, stops, and then runs again. His nose is always in the wind. I am always amazed when I read the science behind dogs’ sense of smell and how intricate it is.

Peace (and sense),
Kevin

Image Haiku: Roots Buried by Time

This week, I am going back into my photo files, and using images as an inspiration for haiku. I am layering words on images.

Image Haiku: Roots Buried by TimeProcess Note: This is from the same baseball park as the other day’s image haiku, but looking from another direction. We marveled at this scene, wondering if this was caused by manmade flooding or not. So many trees, only half in the water. It didn’t seem natural.

Peace (in the lake),
Kevin

Process Note: I saw these ground flowers tucked under a bunch of tulips and others, and thought, they deserve a poem and the spotlight, too.

Peace (down low),

Image Haiku: Swallows of the Swamp

This week, I am going back into my photo files, and using images as an inspiration for haiku. I am layering words on images.

Process Note: I was at my son’s baseball game and noticed this swampy area. A bridge over a bend in the pond caught my attention, and this swamp was filled with diving birds. Swallows, I was told, and watching them dance was very entertaining.

Peace (in the swamp),

Image Haiku: Dying Tree

This week, I am going back into my photo files, and using images as an inspiration for haiku. I am layering words on images.

Image Haiku: Dying Tree

Process Note: Two pine trees in our side yard are succumbing to a fungus in the Northeast. All around, you see shadowy pines, with grey needles instead of vibrant green growth. An arborist told us the trees will slowly die, as they have been, over time. We still rely on their shade in summer, and they are still alive enough for us to not remove them.

Peace (in wonder),
Kevin

Image Haiku: The Path Up

This week, I am going back into my photo files, and using images as an inspiration for haiku. I am layering words on images.

Image Haiku: The Path Up

Process Note: I shared this image a few weeks ago as part of the CLMOOC Silent Sundays. It’s from the woods near my house, where lots of people use natural objects to make public sculptures. I took this photo by getting close to the ground, giving a bit of a perspective shift. The poem reflects this idea of a metaphorical ladder, leading into something.

Peace (ever upwards),
Kevin
