Creative time – From late Summer to early Autumn
28 August 2020
As the season gradually changes from summer towards autumn and we reach out for more jumpers and get cosy during the darker nights, let’s take a moment to notice the atmosphere and what going on around us. And write a haiku or short poem about it! Or just a few words about something that you saw or happened.
You could type some words, draw or brush the words, or use a drawing app on your phone or iPad. Here are some lovely examples from participants, thanks for sending to us 🙂
sharp breeze change in the weather sycamore ‘copters
dashing under the sycamore we take cover as the august rain starts to pour
Blair (in response to Ken’s haiku)
Look! A pheasant’s tail I grasp the reigns of a horse Night spills on parchment.
Gently squeezing the soft hair of the brush I wash away the sumi traces as the autumn breeze beckons
Blair (in response to Laura’s haiku)
sand martins or swallows? swooping through the sky above the yet to ripen blackberries
giving up foraging as the thorns block our way we take a moment to savor the mid afternoon pause
Blair (in response to M’s haiku)
one footstep after another – temple bell
bathed in soft light I return to the cushion
Blair (in response to Andy’s haiku)
Broken Broken yet perfect the Harvest Moon Upon the Rivulet…
Slowly dancing purple shadows Massage the rippling golden currents
Blair (in response to Mike’s haiku)
The wind and a dream The leaf on the breeze
Walking and watching toying with composition and colour
Misty morning breeze bringing golden music
Haiku by Alan, inspired by his sketchbooks and photos of the west coast of Scotland.
Wind hisses in the grass Gorse branches rattle Crowns of tangled thorn
fading colours of flowers and grasses effortlessly merge as I unhurriedly cycle alongside sparkling canal waters
