Daily Verse Feature - solitude theme

mute swans
with unfurled wings
beyond silence,
beyond light

a willet's call
undulating through
beach grasses . . .
her nest is invisible,
but it must be hear

the swallows
have returned at last
I have
no desire to be part
of something bigger

Haiga in Focus, Issue 73, July 2024

 Curated by Claudia Brefeld

Translated into German

Honoured to have the following haiga selected as the Editor's Choice:

Claudia's Commentary:

What a harmonious haiga - clear and fragile at the same time.

The delicate and light-looking picture seems to literally exude the scent of flowers and it is as if it sensitizes the senses. You want to reach for the fleeting colors, walk through them and lose yourself in the scent of the flowers. Close your eyes for a moment and take a deep breath - the lightness of the moment!

The position of the haiku is like a finger pointing, which you follow carefully to enter the depths of the image.
