calmness


cumulus gathers
my lover's vessel
comes calmly in


words: mandy smith
photo: phill deason


a contribution to the stillness theme at One Deep Breath

note for readers: I am not a photographer, which is why I'm grateful to those like phill who send me pictures from time to time and allow me to publish them here or modify them to create haiga. I'll be pleased to hear from other photographers who might supply me with photographs I could use.

I like the fact that you use cumulus instead of just clouds. Lovely photo too.

Such anticipation in your haiku. The words are perfect.

Such a beautiful statement of patient longing. It makes me think of Widow's Walks, turrets built into sea captains' homes on the water's edge so their wives could watch them come home from on high.

Your lover comes in quietly but surely he brings a storm of emotions when he does.

I enjoyed the images created by this haiku.

Great. I really like the cloud gathering, as if somehow the sky is choosing to take note of human actions beneath it. A strong sense of mood in your writing.
