Far away thunder
and a terrible wind blows
as birds fly backward

-- That is so cool. Thank you.

Just thinking, it's been 50 years since I wrote my first Haiku in the 3rd grade--

Red yellow orange green
very very brilliant
the trees in autumn

Funny how I remember that.

You're welcome. Haiku is kind of one of my things - sometimes one just comes out. I like how so much meaning can be packed into a mere seventeen syllables. Kind of like photography, in a way.

I think Haiku are like little word paintings- brushstrokes. The last couple years I've been trying them with my photos. More standard poetry also. Together, photos and Haiku/verse can often make a more illustrative package.

Lately I've been exploring ekphrasis, art confronting art, but using my photos to illustrate writing. I'm not sure if it's an ekphrasis or just an illustration. Either way, it's fun.

This shot and Haiku emanated from the concept of the wind blowing so hard that it blew birds backward when they tried to fly.

Soaring birds today
can not know they fly to reach
yesterday's landing.
