Theory *

Evolution

one mans strange thoughts formulate;

church law resisted

*Note: What is Darwin’s Theory of Evolution? The theory of evolution by natural selection, first formulated in Darwin’s book “On the Origin of Species” in 1859, is the process by which organisms change over time as a result of changes in heritable physical or behavioral traits. Below Iโ€™m also adding a link where you can learn more about the artist, his art is amazing. As always a song, enjoy.

Halcyon Days *

early days of spring,

this fever begins,

settling itself within,

concentration withheld.

watching petals as

they drift past

partially open window.

drifting sweet scent,

borne by early

morning rain

permeates her room.

sunshine breaks,

daydreams

spinning around

thoughts of him.

for her time moves

endlessly slow

until they meet

beneath their tree.

~~~~~~

lightest pink colour~

bringing sweetest youthful blush~

cherry blossom blooms~

Mountain Man (haiku string)*

his pilgrimage

unquestionably begins

~

between mountain range~

lays a valley richly green~

wildlife roaming free

~

upon horizon~

atmospheric changes seen~

grey clouds assemble

~

adventure awaits~

surrounded by nature’s wild~

tranquil silent peace

~

snow capped mountain peaks~

hide steep inclines rocky crags~

dangers of falling

~

challenging nature~

belies perilous journey~

mans need to conquer

~

never ends

*Note: I started this for

The Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic

however I missed the entry date, so it goes. It was indeed hard to write exactly 99 syllables. I find it difficult limiting myself to a specific number of words that can be used. I did succeed with this one but I donโ€™t know if Iโ€™ll attempt another any time soon. I have respect for those that can. The traditional mountain music is unique onto itself, steeped in long history. ๐ŸŒŽโœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™ Take care, be safe.

Winter Menace (haiku)*

shades of black gray white~

captures winters gloomy day~

evokes foreboding~

lg/04022021

*Note: The photo was taken by me, though we donโ€™t get much snow in winter, on this day we did. Winter days can have many faces. When the sun shines, reflecting itself on snowy surfaces it sparkles with beauty. Giving us a sense of peace. Than there is the flip side which I address, an inner feeling of sadness (depression?). The weather like people has its mood swings. The music and video are well suited. I hope you watch it through to the end. ๐ŸŒŽโœŒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’™ Take care, be safe.
