Bitter angel trapped.
Tricked by slippery smiles,
power of ascent gone.

Here is a brilliant Haiku from Sarah 🙂
Sarah, I don’t know how you do it. I look at a photo and see a jumble, and you zero in on the story, the drama, the moral, and make it shine.
Thank you, Naomi:-) The idea doesn’t necessarily happen that quickly for me with haiku – I guess that’s why it’s considered a form of meditation. I’ll ponder a picture, scene, or the minute details of something for ages in my mind, then there’s that moment of enlightenment – it’s almost like a light coming on when everything falls into place and I know exactly which words will do the image justice.
