Refraction of light 

sound of water flowing free 

. . . solace to my soul

  1. Oh, so nice! I really love this one! "Why?", you ask. Because that's the effect this water had on me as I sat there listening to it flow and watching the sun dance off it's surface. It was really quite mesmerizing at the time and what prompted me to take the photo.

    Thank you, Sannel for giving my photo new life with your beautiful haiku. I hope many others find a bit of solace while thinking on it. Take care, dear friend.

Take care!

  5. I can't expound on this but the sound of water flowing freely would be solace to my soul just about now. Now that I have made my small joke, allow me to say that these haiga's of yours are peaceful and pleasing.
