Divagating With Wood
....hole in woods of trees,
hole of darkness i spalt wood,
birch wood holes plus maple….
So this being WoodWriting Haiku Thursday’s, I have changed from my usual format of one picture….to include two photo images in today’s haiku writing. To further carry on….I will attempt to give you the reader, a short glimpse inside my head and explain ‘one’ of these images. That in itself, that I would explain my poetry or any writing of haiku is in itself a most notable break from tradition. But reader//viewer discretion is advised as I must add that once one attains to look inside my head, what you see could at any moment change….and unless one knows the way out, one could get lost inside my head.
Now having said that, let me get on with what and how I came about seeing the black hole there in the first picture, along with and in the midst of the birches. I had not seen this hole before….until the other day, even after all my ages of living and staring out my window hole. After finishing a meal at the kitchen table, I proceeded to turn around in my chair and stare outside the window, thinking on some ongoing work that needed completion by the afternoon. And there before me was the ‘hole of darkness’ in the midst of a leaf field of green, that was calling to me with an invitation to enter in….come up higher….
....birches of leaf shimmering green leaves,
and i all-most felt the slope of the leafy eaves,
calling my name to come up higher where wood weaves,
till in my knowing i sat and waited dreaming as a tree perceives….
’’....work smart, work safe, and live, to work the wood....’‘
