Monday Haiku for OSI







~~~

on the seam
of winter and spring
snow swirls

~~~

right hides in fog
left swells with mist
crossroads

~~~

shifting sand
seasonal move
missing hour

What an interesting picture! I tried to figure out what it was, even used my magnifying glass. I love abstract photography. Gives one a lot to ponder on ... this one looks like a unique crossroad. Light is on the path, darkness if you wander off the path.

Enjoyed all three poems, but I love the last one ...

"shifting sand
seasonal move
missing hour"

I hate spring forward, but I love fall backward, and I do know you can't have one without the other. Like the picture, everything is not as it appears, there are lots of color hanging in-between black and white.

The picture is just too good. Like the second poem a lot.

Each path holds its difficulties.
Enjoyed these.

I enjoyed the fractal and the thoughts on the changing seasons. The missing hour and the fork in the road together make me think of the space between the hands of the clock. The gap does not want to close this morning!

like the seam between winter and spring.

also the 2nd haiku; this is deep.

Deborah Godin said...

These are wonderful seasonal, transitional moments - very nice!

Quiet Paths said...

These are a little mysterious and a little open to interpretation. I love that about your verses. The first perfectly reflects the weather we are having..

I like the Haiku about Winter and Spring. I just got done shoveling the driveway, but it is warm enough for the snow to melt, so your Haiku really had me wishing for spring.

I like the art, and I think it adds to the poetry.

I like these, especially the seam between winter and spring. Neither one thing or the other. I agree with QP it perfectly describes the current weather.

Geraldine said...

Oh what gorgeous artwork Sue, how talented you are! I loved this one and your perfect words to accompany.

Thanks for your compliments re: my own version of: Fork in the Road.

Hugs, G

All three are wonderful.
The first one really touches me, you have found a lovely and unique way to share of this time of changing seasons.

Great take on the 'forked road' prompt! Apt, timely and beautiful!

qualcosa di bello said...

lovely...a fork in the seasons! which way will nature take this march??

endurogirl said...

Strong, ethereal, beautiful. I particularly was taken by "missing hour". Thank you so.

fourwindshaiga said...

We are definitely on the seam here, too. Snow yesterday, sun today, fog tomorrow!

The missing hour verse--perfect.

Beloved Dreamer said...

All three are wonderful, but the middle one is my favorite:

'right hides in fog
left swells with mist
crossroads'

jukota said...

awesome picture. loved on the 'seam of winter'.

Sij said...

Nice one..i learn from you.

Jim said...

I wouldn't like the thought of going through either the mist or the fog. Most of us were having one choice better than the other. One had going back also a choice (of course me, I had to leave the path and take the middle uncharted route--Adi made that decision).

Your picture intrigued me, either it is a crossroad formed from a tooth necklace or simply the letter 'r' which has a natural fork in its drawing. Of course I couldn't decide so I'll flip a coin. Could also be a cross, which has forks in its make-up.

You did good, Sue! (All around "E" for excellent it I were grading.)

I love them all...especially the missing hour. I usually am not a fan of "spring forward" but loved your poem.

Beth P. said...

Dear one!
I loved the middle one, as it was visceral to me. Must be a choice like that in my past...or future...

Many thanks!
