Frosted winter landscape

Faintly reflected heat

Farmers canvas ….. asleep

Frescoes of stilled cobalt

Faraway memories

Finding self ….. whilst dreaming

Further away than ….. Time

A favourite winter walk in Northern Alberta. What mysteries await ….. around the bend?

Pleiades:  This titled form was invented in 1999 by Craig Tigerman, Sol Magazine’s Lead Editor. Only one word is allowed in the title followed by a single seven-line stanza. The first word in each line begins with the same letter as the title. Hortensia Anderson, a popular haiku and tanka poet, added her own requirement of restricting the line length to six syllables.

Background of the Pleiades: The Pleiades is a star cluster in the constellation Taurus. It is a cluster of stars identified by the ancients, mentioned by Homer in about 750 B.C and Hesiod in about 700 B.C. Six of the stars are readily visible to the naked eye; depending on visibility conditions between nine and twelve stars can be seen. Modern astronomers note that the cluster contains over 500 stars. The ancients named these stars the seven sisters: Alcyone, Asterope, Celaeno, Electra, Maia, Merope, and Tygeta; nearby are the clearly visible parents, Atlas and Pleione. The poetic form The Pleiades is aptly named: the seven lines can be said to represent the seven sisters, and the six syllables represent the nearly invisible nature of one sister.

 ….. and now for something completely different!

I am fascinated by Haiku and other similar poetic forms such as Fibonacci, Senryū, etc.. These are my first attempts…ever! I am also including photographs I have taken myself, as they provide inspiration for these new scratchings of mine!

I presently live on an island, but my dragon lineage is most assuredly rural……….
