Over the past few years, I have been increasingly interested in precisely capturing a moment in a single image or in the 3 line constraint of a Haiku poem. In this post, you'll find 11 poems and corresponding images. Not all of the poems were directly inspired by the image that you see here. But, a number of the pairings were 2 reflections of a single story. The joy that I have found in the discovery of these two art forms is pure and simple. Both mediums give me the immediate satisfaction of a story well told.
He is just too loud In the night when he sounds off Waking me again __________________________________________________________________
With mat stretched out flat Heart reaches up to the sky Yoga on the porch
The weight feels heavy This managing of a home I am all grown up
This bed has been full With at least one child for years Now it feels so big _____________________________________________________________
Train lumbering by River reflecting the sky West Virginia dawn
Brilliant sky clear blue Rustling breeze stirring the air Swim lessons commence _________________________________________________________________
Two lovely travelers Moved over to the beyond Separate lives Same name
The roll of the sea Pastel paintings in the sky Feels like coming home
Reflect release breathe Gathering inward focus Making space for grace
I learned long ago That fear, real or imagined Can feel the same way
Perfection is reached Sugar butter flour and salt Baked to golden brown
Late again today But Wednesdays are different There is no yelling
If you feel inspired, please share your images or poems with me! I'd love to see & hear your captured moments.
