too old for the swing:
she kicks out at the mountain
and retreats to the sea

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

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...

01: strangers
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
11: a moment of stillness
12: in between
13: suspended

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

hey again!

hmmm... so delightfully different from the previous one i just viewed Susie, the sense of fun in this is contagious but is juxtaposed with the serious (even somber?) mono tones... great energy in this frame!

love the poem too, it takes me way back to the days when this really was my mantra!

well done, and as mentioned many times by others here, you have yet again produced a great series of entertaining and engaging images, stories, moments and emotions...

congratulations! ads :o)

p.s... (this post reads like i expect the series to finish here, but thats thats not how i wanted it to sound, i want more! lol :o)))
