December 27 Haiku

Beech

found: rushing water,
woodpecker's distant drilling,
beech leaf shadows

Cloudscome,

Lovely photo and haiku. This is one of your best pairings of poetry and picture.

Happy New Year!

Wow! The leaves are doing shadow puppetry of the woodpecker!

Yes, the shadow resembles a bird!

I agree with everyone. Great poem and photo--the "woodpecker" shadow on the tree is incredible!

Wishing you and your family a wonderful New Year!

Thanks friends! I didn't even see the bird shallow until Mary Lee pointed it out. I was listening to the woodpecker drumming while on our walk and when taking this photo. Was thinking it was part of the movement & the moment...

Fabulous, Andi. I also didn't see the bird shadow, but what a happy coincidence!

I love that the poem is about "found" instead of "lost," which is what I might more likely expect from a picture of someone disappearing into a wooded area. It's a great framing of the mood.
