walking by the sea

it whispers discreet advice –

then does my thinking

watching the river

the whole universe flows past –

a red ant nips me

unfinished painting

glacial storm or Northern Lights ?

just paint and water

            This haiku was inspired by a half finished painting. 30″x 30″, it’s one layer of very dilute acrylic on canvas. Just a foundation, outlines – what could be. If I’d been writing a story this would have been its draft. It got me thinking. After that it got me seeing. It isn’t unfinished anymore – it’s staying as it is…

broad wings grasp thin air

rising above the river –

one feather remains

Our minds crave stillness

Fish overlook the water –

It is always there

Ants build great empires

Spiders weave skeins of deceit-

Dead wood brings new life

PS. Just to let you all know that this has probably not turned into a haiku blog! I still intend to publish short stories and flash fiction, but the haiku just keep coming. For now. 🙂
