Experimenting with Poetry and Haiku

In the early morning fog, a grieving garden longs for summer's sun.

1. Engulfed in fog
A grieving garden
Longs for summer sun

2. Engulfed in fog (5)
A garden grieves for summer's (7)
Sun-filled days now gone (5)

* * * * * * * *

3. In fog
A garden weeps
For summer

* * * * * * * *

4. In the fog
A garden

Thanks to Teresa Williams for reawakening my interest in Haiku.

Wonderful! I read it all together as one single poem, and then as individual quotes. No matter which way you read it, the words glide delcately in tune to the picture itself. (Hugs)Indigo

Elizabeth, I will save your blogs on my feeds page at Bloglines so that I can see whenever you post. I've committed myself to writing 100 Haiku poems this year. It will be good for me; it will make me more observant. It's funny how we come back to things in our lives (like Haiku) and it is like discovering them for the first time. All your posts are stunning. Thank you.

Teresa, what an undertaking--100 Haiku poems in a year. Fabulous! Yes, it is interesting how we become more focused and return to simplicity as we "mature." Thank you for stopping by. I am glad you like my photographs and artwork.

Your Haiku poetry looks perfect on Altered Art book cover or chapter opener. I am always stunned by your creative abilities. It is like looking at the Grand Canyon...breathless, awing, speechless even sometimes.

That second photo is a knockout. It just takes my breath away.
