Framed Landscapes

Worlds framed beyond art
Perspectives capture lifescapes
Seasons held within

More said on words unwritten. Love the haiku

dustus said...

All three lines remind me of the perception of inspiration, both within and projected outward. Great use of haiku to support the image.

seasons held within...loved this line and the perspectives capturing lifescapes...great haiku

Richard G. Crockett said...

Very fine. Here is something interesting. I first read the second line as "Perspectives capture lifetimes." Then I read it again and saw "lifescapes."

Beautiful word.

But I like the double meaning merging into one that happened in my mind.

Jerry said...

Perfection!!! In its succinctness, this haiku delivered a world of meaning to this scape...

haikulovesongs said...

i must be unoriginal, but sincere, in agreeing with Kavita ~ your haiku is perfection in and of itself, and perfect for the photograph!

Glynn said...

You've got so much packed into the few short lines of a haiku. Great poem - and a great take on the photograph.

The second line holds so much power and causes one to pause and reflect.
