Sanctuaries Lost

I have been writing quite a bit lately, but have not found any photographs to use.  This weekend will hopefully be full of photographic adventures, although it will be raining with gusto here, we are experiencing spring storms.  These are very unseasonable; leading me to believe more strongly that we are predominantly unconsciously slowly transgressing our planet, and it is kicking up a stink (deservedly)!

Once again, my husband Paul took this wonderful, thought provoking photograph, leading  me to write this haiku poem.  I really love haiku poetry.  It is succinct, therefore promoting depth.

Imagination

It has been a full week since I have posted anything. We are all caught up in the whirlwind of life at times; work, family, friends.  Sometimes it’s nice to just sit down and breathe.  I just had one of these moments to sit and THINK!  I went through photos from our Melbourne (Australia) trip.  We had the chance to see our son, daughter in law and grandson (man it makes me feel old, saying grandson, and I’m not even 50 yet!)  We went to the Melbourne zoo; and although I’m not particularly fond of zoos, it was a lovely family outing.  I just scribbled this poem, and found that this photo my husband took was very well suited.  The beautiful ape sitting, having a snack and contemplating, really moved me.
