Poetry by a lover of poetry
What a lovely photo...and the haiku captures it wonderfully!
Thanks Mary just a photo of a local site. Glad you like the Haiku.
there's magic in the rhythm of a river...love how personal you make that...
...and a beautiful image for a deep relationship as well...
Hi Claudia, it was inspired by something I was reading. Glad the image and the Haiku worked for you.
I agree that rivers can convey a feeling of immortality!
Gabriella I always feel that rivers have lived on earth for ever and will go on for ever.
This almost feels, to me, as if from the building's point of view. Lovely post.
Thank you Hannah, reading it back it does feel like it's written from the buildings point of view.
Beautiful - and the photo complements it perfectly.
Thank you Freya it's kind of you to say so
rivers seem to be life, passing before our lives. I think your question is one to take seriously.
Yes, if you look deep in the water, history passes before your eyes
Beautiful words..the river of life keeps us alive...
Oh yes, it most certainly does
I love the title and haiku ~ The use of the river as timeless is apt ~
Thank you Grace, glad you liked it
Very nice photo there - wonder if the river is immortal, may be reflection makes us think it is.
IInteresting Abhra it could well be the reflexions
Thoughtful.. how indeed have you known that river..ever-changing and yet the same.
yes Steph, you've hit the nail on the head there
As the river is immortal...so are we. We have our stillness and our crested waves... Lovely haiku...made me go deep...into one of my pools.
It sounds like you went somewhere very pleasant indeed
sensing the flow herenice
Cheers I appreciate your kind comments
...i can picture. the white crested waves... & 'immortal' is a good notion to associate to a river... smiles... enjoyed your haiku..
Thanks Kelvin I'm glad you were able to visit my river
the question and voice are finely penned, Pea ~
Thank you, you are very kind indeed
Deep words for a beautiful pic. Nice one.
Thank you Anthony I'm glad you enjoyed them both
Agree with Hannah, this almost feels like the buildings perspective. Definitely someone who has stared at the water for a long time...Thank you! Loved the poem
yes it has stared at the water for a long time. It is a working church so so perhaps there is some extra spirituality
rippled reflectionwaits; the seasons ingested -change that does not changeNice capture with both haiku and photograph. I felt a cool chill rising from the water's edge.
Thank you so much Todd for the haiku in reply its very strong and I enjoyed it immensely
The way it mirror the building in the picture capture in an immortal river - a wonderful mysterious haiku
Björn I'm glad you found it mysterious, that pleases me
