Beauty on the Rocks

Credits: Yoshiyuki Iwase
Dear friends and followers,

Another wonderful photo-challenge at mindlovemisery's menagerie a nice weblog with several challenges hosted by poetry loving people. This weekly photo challenge is hosted by Bastet. She is a great haiku-poet who is part of the Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Family, which I am hosting.

This photo will not be an easy one to write a haiku about, but I have to try it of course.

What do I see? I see the ocean with several rocks or cliffs in it. On one of the rocks I see a nude female. Why is she sitting there on that rock. Will she commit suicide? She looks sad, because of the pose in which she sits. Is she awaiting someone? Is her boyfriend or husband a sailor? What is she doing, feeling, hoping ...

awaiting her lover
who lost his life at sea -
heaven awaits her

Well ... see you next time.

Good questions and yes, she her pose does seem so despondent. Great take on this picture.

Dear Chèvrefeuille,

This is such a beautiful haiku and I loved how you shared your thoughts which led you to it!

BTW, I'm just sitting in for our host and the photo was furnished by Yves. Thanks so much for your participation!

Ciao, Bastet

I do like the ambiguity of that "heaven" which awaits - from a lover's embrace or a watery grave...
