wooded seclusion
risks beyond the verandah
ready for taking

Perfect pair. Just get up and go...the going part is sometimes the challenge. Thank you.

True adventure today may need more silence than noise.
La véritable aventure aujourd'hui est intérieure.

Unbelievable scene, so full of adventure. I watched Bridge to Terabithia last night and this makes me think of that.

adventure is just outside one's door! what a beautiful way to say it with such a gorgeous photo...

Adventure on your door step.
Very nice.

You are so right - any adventure involves some level of risk!
Nicely said and beautiful photo!

Amazing how adventure is just a footstep or two off the familiar and safe. I really enjoyed your haiku!

Yoga Gal said...

Beautiful photo! Where did you take it!

Mandy said...

I don't take photographs myself. I only add words to create haiga. I do crop and change photographs sometimes to get the best effect. This was taken by lori bierly [as credited on the post with a link to her website]. Lori is based in New York but where the photo was taken I do not know and for the purpose of the haiga its actual location is irrelevant.

Lori said...

Hi yoga gal, thanks, the photo was taken at the Orchard House Museum in Massachusetts (Louisa May Alcott's childhood home). But Mandy cropped the photo and made it much better!

My favorite line 'risks beyond the verandah' I truly enjoyed this haiku and its accompanying picture. Keep up the good work.
