‘swaying branch’ and ‘moment of stillness’

swaying branch
the hummingbird here
and not here
moment of stillness
just before the light
haiku,poetry,International Haiku Poetry Day 2015, From In the Garden of Absence (Fruit Dove Press, 2012), my book of haiku and micro poetry.

The ‘hummingbird’ poem is also included in my film presentation for HaikuLife ‘Haiku Journey‘ organised by The Haiku Foundation and shown together with several other entries to the event on International Haiku Poetry Day, April 17, 2015. The event was an enormous heart-warming, global literary celebration of haiku, and if you missed it, you can catch up through the blog posts on the THF site and the links here

Haiku Journey for HaikuLife 2015

At the beginning of this year, I wrote about my visit to Kettle’s Yard, University of Cambridge, to view their collection of paintings by  Alfred Wallis. At that time, I was inspired to put together a presentation for the HaikuLife FilmFest, organised by The Haiku Foundation. The presentation, Haiku Journey, was shown on International Haiku Poetry Day, April 17, 2015, together with a good number of other films. It is now archived on the site here.
