I creep through ancient forests,
decrepit, abandoned- nearly destroyed.
A dense fog lay beneath my shins,
I cannot see the forest floors.
Only a smoky grey ocean,
an unearthly mystic haze.
The morning barely sung,
newborn to a day of solitude.
Creatures nest, flourishing
where I cannot see but I can hear.
Now as dreams have clouded,
this morning is full of realists.
I hear crisp of leaves below
bare feet scratching the palms,
my toes reach hesitant for stepping.
I pull away from some hanging bones
and through the branches
I peek the rest of the world.
With a snake-lake gaze,
I see there [still] lays a strange
beauty in this wasteland,
something worth saving.

Haiku inspired by a partial double exposure taken with my ae-1…. Culver City, California.
Haiku(s) inspired by this photo I took of my neighbor’s car with my Canon AE-1 program, 2016.
We have an overwhelming amount of readers for this one so I have decided to sit out, and let everyone else have a go. There will be live music, there may even be some burlesque dancers? Rumors are stirring… Should be a fun night. 😉
Photo taken with Canon ae-1 program in St. George, Utah. It was November, 2015.
Haikus inspired by that time we felt smaller than we were…
The solstice arrived last night at 9:24 pm. In Los Angeles, we get somewhere nearly year round, but there is still something special about the solstice and the changing of the season. This poem is originally titled “Summer of ’16”. The photo was also taken some time last summer, with my Canon ae-1 program on one of our many trips down the street to Venice Beach. ♥ Nisi
