  1. Now that you say it, it rings true. That will be a good expression for me to use here in the Holy Land.

      Easily? Not at all! For this particular haiku, I worked for an hour and made at least 36 drafts. Sometimes they just fall into place, but not often!

  9. Beautiful skies and what memories they brought!! I lived in San Miguel de Allende for over year after I retired! It’s a fabulous and beautiful place! Lovely words to match! Have a great weekend!


  10. your photos are always unique…..I live on an island, and haven’t scenes like them around my world…..and, as always, haiku was thoughtful and moving

  11. perfect “union”
    of sacred ordinary.

  12. We experienced the act of collecting smooth stones as a sacred ordinary act…

  13. this is stark and beautiful

  14. What powerful words!!!!!

  15. Crafty Gardener

    I love old stone fences, wish I had the ability to build them.

  16. I just love your haiku today, but then I always do.

  17. I find that old stone fences are very difficult to photograph. You did a great job here! And wonderful haiku!

  18. it is great to use whatever is close at hand. 🙂

  19. I love stone fences! Lovely blue skies with fluffy clouds.

  20. Stone fences inspire profound thoughts such as your poem. I look at them and think patience, persistence, hardwork, beauty in the commonplace.

  21. Beautiful shot I love these stones 🙂
