Haiku my Heart Friday: Sunlight

image from running through rain


In the still wet dawn
I grasp a strand of sunlight
Keep it safe all day



Thank you, Rebecca, for reminding me that it's Haiku My Heart Friday

And to my muse, does this prove I've still got a bit of creativity left?

(I also want to clarify that I did not take this photo. It's one of my favorite images that I've found on the net which I saved for inspiration. I found it on a website called Rain Coaster Media/Running Through Rain and am hunting for the original artist to give her/him credit.)

Who can catch the light,
keeping it safe through the day?

I imagine you with that strand of sunlight stowed safely in your pocket - and when it's time to go out into the world, you can weave it into your hair. Better than any kind of makeup :)

What a neat picture! I love the haiku you wrote to go along with it. :)

I used to have that photo on my wall. I adore that picture. I think that it says something significant about the culture where it was taken as well, but I love the idea of capturing light and holding it with you all day, or internalizing it by doing so. It is a nice shot and thanks for sharing it.
xo,
Noelle

It is indeed an intriguing photo which apparently inspired your haiku. Thanks for this.

All the best, Boonie

I love the idea of grasping a strand of light, I suppose there are lots of strands of light enough for everyone to grasp and to take with, on our journeys.

Thank you for your words and image.
