Poetry Friday--Irish Horses

My writer friend, Janet, moved to Ireland several years ago. She shares photos of her adopted home on Facebook, many of which have horses as their subject. I have, with her permission, made several into haiga for Happy Haiga Day! posts.

The first three are different interpretations of the same photo.


Text:

curiousity
of horses used to living
amongst fairyfolk


Text:

bats overhead...
the realization you've
missed dinner


Text:

distant thunder
more than enough time
to say goodbye


Text:

Cooloorta fields...
we take each other's measure
nose to nose


Text:

Gortlecka crossroads...
this morning redolent
with rascality

The last one is a favorite of mine. The photo tickles me every time I see it!

Visit Catherine at Reading to the Core for this week's Round-Up.

the fog lifts...
yet figments and fancies
linger

Have a great St. Patrick's Day and include a visit to Life on the Deckle Edge, where Robyn is holding today's Round-Up.

Happy Haiga Day!

Friday was an interesting day weather-wise. We had snow, but the sun made a mighty effort to poke its way through.

March squall...
intimations of spring

Poetry Friday--Woodcut Project

This week I've been working on some woodcut project poems. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. Here are two. The first is not quite successful visually, but I like the poem.

her schedule filled
she always manages
a daydream


This next one actually depresses the hell out of me. In the background I have forest facts from Save America's Forests. But all aspects of the environment are in danger. Enough said.

when greed
has overcome need
how to survive
if our only pathway
ends in annihilation


Look for a brighter batch of poems at the Poetry Friday Round-Up being held at Today's Little Ditty.
