A Carpet of Purple Flowers - Haiku

Haiku



~1~
In Calageata
The Sindria 'well of souls'
Hides in purple haze


~2~
He, The 'Heaven Stone' 
Wearing a black hooded shroud
Quiet observer


~3~
A scent fills the breeze
On hills of purple flowers
Brings him to his knees


~4~
The moon upon us
as we lay on purple buds
Hearts open to love


love and light

Haiku play


It's been a while since I placed words together in Haiku fashion. 

Haiku is one of the most important form of traditional Japanese poetry. 
 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.

Japanese haiku are traditionally printed in a single vertical line, while haiku in English often appear in three lines to parallel the three phrases of Japanese haiku.
Previously called hokku, haiku was given its current name by the Japanese writer Masaoka Shiki at the end of the 19th century.

Below are a few pieces I put together with the book in mind.

~1~
Sleeping thoughts guide me
In the darkness I find home
Is it you waiting?

~2~
His shadow haunts him
The darkness follows his light
Me...his salvation

~3~
One heart torn in two
Sorrow is my confusion
A world full of illusion

~4~
What is it they say?
What goes around comes around
Karma, a strange tale

~5~
Red-haired vixen bites
Talons of hatred claw scars
Spite with all her might

~6~
He swore no more lies
A smile his silent disguise
The farse beyond eyes

~7~
Soul as glass, a mask
Treading carefully, don't break
Piece of heart I skate

Love and light

Photographer's Magic!

Capturing Magic 

Aliza Razell

               Mixed Media Paintings

Young female artist, Aliza Razell, Massachusetts-based, experiments with different mediums to create her mesmerizing artworks. She combines two of her great passions; photography and watercolors. As she states, Aliza Razell has a burning need to create.


The pictures are created in series. Such as, Anesidora , involves the story of Pandora’s Box, inspired by the magic of confronting – and ultimately collaborating with – something entirely foreign and otherworldly. Some of her work is inspired by the Finnish word 'Ikävä', meaning the feeling of missing someone or something. Below are a few of her wonderful creations.
