On Frozen Ground



here along the path
message stacked on frozen ground
love waits to be found




This haiku was my first impression/expression released from this image. It led to a longer free verse that can be found  @ Buddha Chick Life titled Face Within Face. Though it is February now, the photo was taken in January on a snowy walk through the bog. I do hope you will click the blue link and read the fuller poem born from this photograph, as well as many other beautiful offerings at BCL.

  8. How you find hearts everywhere you look is astounding to me. It tells me that YOU are all heart. Hugs to you, Laura.

  9. The image (is it wood?) kind of looks like a snagged heart. And it's against ice, so it's warm on cold. Is it pleasing or too textured to enjoy? Not sure.

  16. It IS wonderful what you can find strewn in your path if you are really looking. Once I found a paper ripped in two. When I picked it up and put it together it was a clown face. And I recognized myself in it. The Fool is the beginning of wisdom. And warm hearts are waiting all around you!

  29. This is akin to the man in the (half) moon where the textures in earth's moon looks as a face. What is cool here is that e are keyed to look up for this. Yet this face is from the earth where we wouldn't normally look. But you did - and have exhibited for our benefit. Very nice find and haiku!
