Stillness – by Estrella Azul

"Through a lens I glance
At the beauty around me –
Capturing stillness"


Loved the natural artsy light/shadows effect coming through our new window after closing the curtains for the first time.

The above haiku was inspired by this photograph and Kevin J. Mackey (who just published his amazing haiku collection – if you haven’t already purchased your copy: What are you waiting for?).

  3. Well I went to the waterhole (rss feed) #haiku, and was directed here. It has nice warm beauty. Yet, it is a virtual. Though reading: that human evolution is slowing, can consciousness be expanding? I leave you this, formed this morning and shaped here.
