In Bloom – Haiku

On a strange dead tree in the center of a reed filled swamp, cranes roost in springtime.

In the golden reeds

Suddenly a withered tree

Has cranes for blossoms

It happened at last! Ronovan had two prompt words that forced me to take a new picture. “Cranes and Gold” are the prompts this week and I had to take a trip to Lake Monger, a reed infested swamp a stones throw from my workplace teeming with wildlife (mostly birds, turtles and deadly tiger snakes.) It is actually quite a lovely place. These cranes roost in the center of the reeds on a big dead tree and the effect is quite surreal.

  1. It’s amazing how Ron inspires one into creating a new visual to match a haiku. I was put in a similar position that turned out to be a unique experience into cut and paste that I haven’t done since I was a kid. Loved your post, TJ. The cranes really do look like blossoms.
