The Sound of Water: Three Haiku

We missed Reddit’s Poetry last month because of the Covid-19 lockdown so I’ve decided to make this short video clip instead. It’s three haiku with a water theme that I found at The Haiku Foundation’s website. Each of them is overlain on one of my photos of Eastern Cape waterfalls:

  • Wally Swist’s haiku with the Upper Kowie Falls in Featherstone Kloof near Grahamstown;
  • Ron Moss’s haiku with the Madonna and Child Falls at Hogsback;
  • Bashō’s classic haiku with The Upper Tyumie Falls at Hogsback.

I hope you enjoy them.

 

Three classic winter haiku set to snow-scenes on the Faluån, Dalarna

There’s a zen to nature photography and haiku that I’ve wanted to work with for quite a while. So here’s something from me which is rather new. Three snow scenes intended as small dialogues between classic winter haiku and my own photographs. The pictures were taken during last week’s snowy weather and they are of the Faluån – that’s the river that runs through Falun connecting Lakes Varpan and Runn in Dalarna, Sweden. The haiku come from a small website 12 Haiku That Reflect on Zen Buddhism.

There should be no need to say more – but comments and suggestions are welcome.
