Random Patterns (in response to NaPoWriMo)
Little creatures move in the darkness,
Burrowing through the paperbark.
Drawing strange tendrils
Of childish seaweed,
Or branches of a Fauvist tree.
Matisse cut out collages.
Haiku for RonovanWrites weekly challenge “Life and Path”
Beneath the surface
Life moves imperceptibly
Tracing its own path
This is a photo of the trunk of a “Paper bark” tree, an Australian native tree with layer upon layer of tissue paper thin bark. We used to love pulling off the layers as kids. Sometimes larvae burrow under the layers and make these trails.
