----------------------------------

This series of images is inspired by Haiku - the tiny poems of Japan, traditionally written in seventeen syllables.

Haiku usually gain their effect by suggestion, presenting a clear-cut picture which serves as a starting point for trains of thought and emotion. But because these poems are short, they rarely try to give the picture in detail - the rest the reader must fill in.

In recent years, there has been an enthusiastic and expanding interest in Haiku-in-English. This genre springs from the Japanese form but rarely consists of seventeen syllables. What it does seek to retain is the brevity, clarity, immediacy and resonance of Japanese Haiku and, like a photographic image, to record and share a moment of seeing...

02: curl
03: been there
04: dissatisfied
05: the silence of books
06: one farmer and me
07: the last embrace
08: shallows
09: before the guests
10: retreats to the sea
11: a moment of stillness
12: in between
13: suspended

Thank you for viewing - all feedback (+/-) gratefully received...
