Stone Garden







enlightenment stones
in the temple garden -
summer heat

mossy steps
overgrown by time and
loneliness

Gabi: I loved this haiku even before I looked at the picture. The combination of the two is irresistible.
The subtle play of "light" in "enlightenment" and "heat" really resonates.

Great photo haiga, Gabi. Thanks for sharing.

Your aesthetic life sure beats mine, even if you do have to wait out typhoons and tsunamis now and again. (We have killer tornadoes in Arkansas, but nothing like the devastating weather related events in Japan.)
