Photo-haiku

In 1999 Mitty (Mitsugu) Abe developed the first interactive website for photographers and haiku poets to do something new and collaborate with their arts: “Overcoming Time and Distance”. Along with others around the world, WHC members have enjoyed Mitty’s sites by writing haiku for a wide variety of photographs of nature, people and places. Recently Mitty created Beacons, a web site in which people submit photos and haiku about the seasons related to the places where they live. Already this site enjoys submissions from the U.S., Canada, UK, Japan and Italy.

Calla Lily Image

don’t you hear
the music
of the trumpeteer?

how dark
the shade of sun in the light
of a calla lily

in white linen shroud

wrapped in white
your core of pollen
waits for the bees

the whole day

a calla lily
open for business

Ladder Image
by Max Verhart


my childhood dreams!
what a small place,
this tree house —

Michael McClintock


a widow’s thoughts
climbing up into
apple blossoms

Paul Conneally


forgotten ladder
the son hurries home
with the cat

Carmen Sterba


tall ladder
against taller tree
the climber daydreams

peigi ann sway


I will accept
its invitation
silver ladder

Linda Robeck


spring orchard —
blossoms are turning
into apples

Monastery
by Ena Linares


evensong-
the faint shuffling
of sandalled feet

Sue Mill


at the end of
a monk’s silent walk:
light

Sheila Windsor


evening prayer
in a monastery
a chant echoes

Robert Leechford


hallowed eve
a silence broken
only by footsteps

Kathi Rudawsky


let’s step inside
this cool colonnade,
little sparrow

Michael McClintock


around the arches
echoes
of meditations

Morning Silhouette
by soji (Gary Barnes)


morning silhouette
a shadow becomes
the tree

Darrell Byrd


sunrise-
the first lark’s
hesitant notes

Sue Mill


releasing the tree
from its shadow
morning light

Linda Robeck


clouds part
for a moment in time
morning silhouette

Carol Raisfeld


dim morning
my every thought shadowed
by your absence

naia


storm warning
a bruised sky
threatens revenge

soji (Gary Barnes)


Morning Dew
by Carol Raisfeld


first morning alone
teardrops
even the roses

Jeanne Marie Booth


newspaper delivery
the dew on the roses
quivers

Carmen Sterba


in the dew drop
an unseen universe-
worlds collide

Sue Mill


her lips
sweet as the dew
on the morning rose

Darrell Byrd


summer rose –
the dew soaking
in coral pink

Robert Leechford


a dewy rose
this morning
the scent of summer

Carol Raisfeld

New Leaves
by Ray Rasmussen


giving away
the youngest of my daughters –
new spring leaves

Linda Robeck


leaves hold
small ballet shoes
dance yet to come

Carol Sircoulomb


spring leaves
the mellow tinkle
of windchimes

Sue Mill


sycamore seeds
my son slides down
the banister

Paul Conneally


winged seeds –
flight for
life

Rita Summers


spring leaves–
new growth covers
old burdens

Ray Rasmussen
