    Really nice haiku!
    I remember my first (and last) attempt at was hilariously non valid because I thought haiku’s were 5,7,5 words…instead of syllables! LOL!

  3. Wonderful – and perfect photo to match!

    I am a devoted lover of the exotic forms of poetry, haiku and senryu, tanka…I love your gift with these forms, truly lovely.

    How gorgeous.

    • Thank you! I was standing in a creek, just outside of Grande Prairie!

      • RL King says:

        Goodness… That’s funny. My husband has taken several pictures up that way for me in the past few months…and they are lovely. The light coming in on the northern slant, has a huge visual effect.

        • This was taken a couple of summers ago 🙂 And I have been lucky enough to see the Northern Lights there too, during harvest! Spectacular! And of course, no camera at the time! Most of my rural photos are from around GP.

          • RL King says:

            Ah…well. You have to be darn good with a camera to catch the northern lights anyway, and in the process, can miss the pure joy of them. I find in the spring here…about April-May, even in the city they can be pretty amazing. But one of my goals is to get some out of city shots of them.
            It is hard to believe the sky can go pink and green unless you’ve seen it. 🙂

            • And…the crackling sound! Experts say that the aurora creates no sound, but I could hear crackling! My bucket list includes the SOUTHERN aurora too! 🙂

              • RL King says:

                Oh, I’ve heard of it, but never ‘heard’ it myself. I think to see any natural night lights, north or south, should be in everyone’s bucket list. But, since I’m always in the cold, I may be happy to go equator south, but not Antarctic south.

                • You only need to go to Australia, and you can still be warm! 🙂 The only other sky show I can compare to the aurora, would be when I was in Greece, on a small island (Santorini) and for the first time, I could really see the Milky Way! No ambient light and just me, the stars and … the dormant volcano I was sitting on! 🙂

                  • RL King says:

                    Oh my…that sounds surreal. Camera present?

                    • Camera present but couldn’t figure out how to take long exposure/night shot! But the memories remain! 🙂

                    • RL King says:

                      Lol. I understand! I know now. But keeping the camera steady for long enough to get a clean exposure,unblurred, that’s tough. You need a stationary object to set the camera on. Very frustrating at times.
                      And well, sometimes the memories become the fodder for dreams…they turn into a sweeter art than a photo. But wow. What a great one that must be.

                    • A tripod was a luxury as I was backpacking for three months! If a picture is worth 1000 words, then I am grateful if I can craft a Haiku out of one, every so often! 🙂 Memories… and Memoirs, eh!

    Bogen reiner Lust

    Gebeugt doch nie gebrochen

    ∞ endlose Ernte ∞

    Hi, I like it, so I tried to render it in German.
