Journey from Photography to Haiku Poetry

 




Copyright Wendy Blomseth 2021

Forest of One Tree
PhotoPoetry Journal Vol. 1 - 2020 Lockdown


From portrait photography to print on demand photo products to now combining the Japanese short form of poetry called "haiku." 

This image is from the first in a continuing book series, which includes photography and poetry = PhotoPoetry Journal, Volume 1 - 2020 Lockdown. 

Going forward I'll be displaying all the arts that are called to me.

Thank you for sharing this creative journey with me.

Namaste, 
Wendy Blomseth

Birds, Birdsongs and a Cat

 

  

red male songbirds 

protect their territories 

flirts with females 

  

****** 

  

songbirds loudly sing 

battle for a safe home 

serenade a mate 

 

 ****** 

  

bird sings in garden 

cat chatters in the window 

all safe, happy ending 


 ****** 

 

birdsongs fill the air 

drown out trains planes cars 

urban orchestra

A poem inspired during the Environment & Spirituality zoom call where we had virtual visits to a favorite garden and found a story to tell, and poem to write.



Hyacinth's Scent Stunned

 




hyacinth's scent stunned 

pink and purple petals waved 

bees buzzed 



Every Wednesday evening I participate in a Zoom Call with the Meetup group:  Environment & Spirituality.  


Each week has a specific theme and activity; all inspirational, calming, and a constant source of haiku poems for me.  


On 4/28 we again went on a virtual visit to a favorite garden and invited to a creative writing exercise.

Blooming Radiance

 


blooming radiance 

with perfect imperfections 

 scars lovingly held

calm, brave, as the arm  

protects the breast from harm 

soaks in the sun’s strength

Dream of Wiggling Toes

 



dream of wiggling toes 

on fresh green garden grass 

smelling peonies 

Soulful Love and Light

 

soulful love and light 

fills every breath of paint 

visceral delight

Green Moss Hug Stones

 

  

green moss hug stones 

white blossoms on apple tree 

birds fly to refuge  

  

******


dozens of birds chirp 

soothing sound of soft raindrops 

lushest green grass grows  


******  

  

shine on, shine pink moon 

up in the sky, all will stare 

not ... clouded over
