sunlight splits
the firewood

    This one was inspired by Charles’s comment about reading the love poem in front of a fireplace.

  4. beautiful Graham,

    how great it is to swing that axe and split wood. one of the best house work existing.

    Clever Haiku. I gather fire wood from our woodpile every winter evening, yet something so brilliant never occurred to me. Apart from reading lots, & writing some fairly average haiku, do you have any tips for an aspiring haiku writer… to see things in new ways? Tash

      Thanks Tash! Glad this image surprised you. As for tips… If there are other people in your area writing, the best thing I ever did when I started out was to join a haiku group, where we shared poems every month at a gathering. I also find going on a ginko with other haiku poets is a great way to capture some new images. Hope this is helpful, G
