Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

I was up in the mountains yesterday sitting by the creek, listening to its stories:

creek running wild, spring dance


sitting by the creek
listening to its stories
clear waters running wild
spring dance

Earth & Water


this first day of spring
water drips from frozen eaves –
tulips poke from earth

birds singing by window
like me, they’re ready for spring

High Tide

Carpe Diem Haiku Writing Techniques #24 movement (undou)



Today, I learned something about high tide. I always thought that the gravitational pull was between the ocean and the moon. Not so, it’s between the earth and the moon. But the attraction is such that when the earth moves, the shift in the ocean’s water is what amounts to high tide and low tide. How is that for movement?

caught in between
the moon’s passion for the earth
ocean at high tide
