A Fairhaven Haiku, December 10, 2019

Black and white photobooth
Walked past this relic in Fairhaven

embraced by the night
walking, the air freeing me
birds high overhead

A photo and a poem from the Edmonds Waterfront

A walk through the dark
Moving over the boardwalk
The quiet’s beauty

I enjoyed editing this one. The texture is wonderful, at least to me.

Walking along the shore

Walking in the night
Enjoying this graceful scene
Of the moon’s ascent

One of my favorite places is the waterfront in Edmonds, about 30 miles north of Seattle. I adore walking along the shore. Even tonight in the cold, though there were moments of striking clarity.

Exploring Downtown Seattle

My home was once there
The outward shape is still there
And yet, it’s transformed

Walking these old streets
Visions of dirty concrete
Echoes of our past

Grime and poverty
Once marked these streets with their truth
Now airbrushed away

Walking with dear friends
Explorations of this past
Amongst my future

As one stares upwards

Admiring ornate art

Expressions in stone


 

Another image found on Bing (it’s from this website. Really interesting work).

I’ve long admire such stonework. The craftsmanship is exquisite, but I’m even more impressed by the mind the conceived it.

Reflecting From Stone

Reflection

Staring at myself
Wetted marble captures me
As I seek balance

If you’ve been to Seattle’s Pacific Science Center, you’ve probably noticed the marble sphere balanced upon water. A perfect equilibrium which allows for an ease of motion; it can be shifted with one hand.¬†
