Out of the blue–a haibun

Some days it seems to me that the angels are just a breath away.  Today is such a day.  Thinking I’d like to make a digital image that featured angel wings I went out and photographed some stone angels around town.




Before I left home I wrote several haiku.  I planned to combine the most complex one with several photos and create a multi-layered haiga.   When I came to make the image I found the simplest of my haiku and my simplest photo best expressed what I wanted to say.

  1. Really quite enchanting.

    Off topic – I noticed that when I went to fill my bird feeder that the summer nests in my porch eaves had either fell or were taken down. I pulled three feathers from the nest.
    A different wing… I guess I am feeding my angel birds. 😉

    1. I love collecting disused bird’s nests too. I am seeing more and more that they incorporate man made materials like plastic twine or synthetic fluff. It’s quite inspiring really.

    1. Thanks Kim – photographing stone angels against a blue sky is one of those motifs I return to again and again (like many other photographers). There is something powerful in the colour contrast.

  2. Sometimes less can be more, your intention may have been to create a haiga, but your final image is beautiful in its simplicity Suzanne. The haiku too is lovely, reminds me of of Reiki, crystals and all kind of spiritual healing. I wonder why you are drawn to angels at the moment, bet theres a message in that itself…
    p.s. I have added your image to the link up. 🙂

    1. Thanks Amanda. I think the angels are always around us. It’s just remembering that. This whole post had it basis in a meditation I did early in the morning 🙂
