Sunriseset

grey suddenly blue
I walk circles with the light
returning to stars

“On the Road” has a haiku prompt this week that considers the life and work of Kikusha-Ni, a Buddhist nun, poet, artist, and wanderer.

I used two sky photos I took at the beach and didย some quick watercolors on rice paper, combining the elements in a few different ways.

The haiku evolved along with my photoshop manipulations.

dawning grey to blue
the sun wears orange this evening
returning to black

    This is so cool–love the art and the poetry. Time and colors merging.
    (I have a sunset and a sunrise photo in my post today, too. How weird is that?) ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Kerfe, I like how you combine the two photos, with your painting set between. Beautiful poem as well.

    What beautiful haiku. I love the idea of walking with the light to the stars. Your images really add to the post. I like the way you have used your watercolour painting as a connecting panel between the images. Thanks so much for joining in the challenge . – Suzanne

    I like both watercolors for different reasons.
    The first, for the way it seems to flow.
    The second, for the way the transition seems to be floating, as if a creature in a surreal existence, surrounded by the universe.

    Excellent haiku that leave the mind to imagine..

      Thanks Ken. It was really interesting to see what happened to the images when I moved them around in photoshop–often unexpected. I like that floating feeling too. And of course, stars.
