Raindrops, a haiga

Dear friends and followers,

As you all know I have a daily haiku-meme at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. It's really my joy to host that daily meme and I do like to publish so now and than here in response on the prompts at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai (CDHK).

This month at CDHK is all about haiga, picture and haiku, and today the prompt is "raindrops" and I love to share a haiga here with this prompt as theme. (Of course I will link it to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, but that's possible tonight at 7.00 PM (CET)

A wonderful haiga, as I may say that (a little immodest) but the picture screamed to be used as a haiga and so this is what I came up with.

Have nice weekend,

Namaste,

Mindlovemisery's Menagerie Photo Challenge 50 "Twister"


Photo © Keiko McCartney
Another photo challenge by MindLoveMisery's Menagerie ... I just had to be part of it ...

This is a wonderful image to become inspired ... what is my inspiration distilled from this photo/image? I see the Twister, healthy and strong. I see the guy in front watching it ... he seems not to be afraid for what is coming. The river in front is still calm with just a few wrinkles. The sky so dark that there will not be any sound of birds or other animals ... I asked myself "how can I catch the essence of this image?"

Here is my try to write an impression, a haiku ... :

through the river
twister takes the fastest path -
birds remain silent

I hope I did catch the essence of this image, the strongness of the twister against the fragility and silence of the birds ....

What do you think?

Namaste,
