Otter catches trout

Time flows as river passes

Raven waits hopping

    Fantastic! You are certainly on a roll with these. Excellent work. I agree with one of your previous comments, how it’s a good exercise to write them because they make us choose the absolute best words we can.

    Yes – they just keep on coming! I was beginning to feel the pressure to write for the blog, and writing stories takes a lot of time and energy for me, so moving onto Haiku feels lovely. Writing these kind of poems seems such a clear, meditative process – just what I need right now. It’s like giving the left side of my brain a rest, and allowing the right side free rein – and that’s a lovely feeling!
    And – it was you who inspired me. I won’t forget that. Thank you.x
