The sun sets seasoned
from curled husks detached alight
Gusts grieving morrow

Sunday, October 4, 2015. I wrote this haiku and created the image “Tree Fall” while listening to cellist Gautier Capucon play Antonín Dvořák – Cello Concerto in B minor, Op. 104, B. 191 (via YouTube at https://youtu.be/FVKb3DwPFA8). This movement reminds me of when the season starts to change from summer to fall (but summer doesn’t want to leave).

Hard pan heat rises
Parched landscapes, sharpened
A desert solstice

When life’s blood flows
To capture tales reflected
A cupped love grows
