I had no picture of sleet falling.  This photo was taken on a really cold, rainy day on the Atlantic coast near St. Augustine, Florida

This was inspired by a Haiku-photo posted by Cheshyre.

Haiku combined with a photo seems a contrast between a

minimalist use of words and a picture which we all know

"is worth a thousand words".

L thought I should have cropped the overturned chair from the bottom of the photo.  This is my first attempt to add text to a photo., and I got so involved with the app I forgot to edit the picture.  I hope this doesn't offend.

Actually, the overturned chair helps set the mood

Glad to see you take the plunge! And Kosh is right about the chair. It's whatever captures the moment that counts.

Thanks, Cheshyre, to both you and kosh for stopping by and commenting.

Haiku often sounds sparse. Maybe it is Japanese sentence construction, but more likely it is the constraint of the form. Like a short story everything has to be developed and said with great economy.

I like the chair.  I like haiku but I have to get into the mindset.  it's very contained - like walking with your ankles tied.

‘An earth time of tears’ is a powerful line!

It feels like us humans are so late in realizing how the earth has been feeling all these long years of disrespect. I really like, though, how you connect the sky and the sea here. And how picture and haiku can be good amigos.
