Triumphant Return!

Well, not quite.

As you may have noticed, I haven’t posted in a long time. Long story. I’m going to re-enter blogging, but slowly.

Rather than jump right into technique, I’m going to give you an image (photograph or video) and a haiku from a master. The haiku and image may or may not be related. Use either the haiku or the image (or both) as inspiration for your own original haiku (or tanka).

Ready?

We’ve had a WEE bit of water this week. Here is a video of nearby Caledonia State Park (Pennsylvania) – under water!

 

Here is another great view.

     uncertain and fickle
     are all withered away

I hope you are inspired!

Please write your haiku, and then add the link to your blog response in the comments section.

Namaste —
