Haiku

P2140005 The word "Haiku" in English is nonsense sounding...suggesting, if bellowed loudly, a running attack on someone..."HAIKU, I am going to get you!"  

Another view may claim that its resonance, if whispered softly elongating the long "u", echoes a romantic bird call..."hai-coo, coo."  The five-seven-five meter poem called haiku is fun to create -- rapid finger counting and tongue-clicking syllables searching for words to celebrate nature's beauty. Visual haikus? Why not? No troublesome meters but apposite juxtapositions of "cutting" images that slice with rapid strokes to reveal stark beauty.

Crystal drop mid month

Unexpected thaw and melt

Janus looks both ways
