Wednesday Haiku, Week 12: Vishnu P. Kapoor


Wednesday Haiku, Week #12


ginko walk-
a trill
turns each head
Vishnu P. Kapoor

is my wrinkled hand
bad for walking?
first firefly

ha. cool. i didnt know the term "ginko walk" either (thanks). with that knowledge - way cool on Vishnu P. Kapoor's haiku. it not only pulls a visual from my memory, it also creates a new one. i like that. aloha.

Love that! Serendipity . . .

A ginko-no-kukai in the works - more later.

Exquisite Hiroshige.... These last few days the sounds of fledglings already in the newly warmed sun...
These moments, so jewel-like, memories so fast...

Best of luck with the ginko-no-kukai, bandit.

Yes, the Hiroshige is lovely. Everything does seem to accelerate during budding season. I shot 30 photos on a 45 minute walk to work yesterday, but it didn't slow anything down for even a moment ...
