in the darkness
by a snowflake’
A note about my process. This poem started out as a haiku :
in the fall garden
scent of lavender’
The experience was real enough. I was wandering around my somewhat neglected late autumn garden this morning and I discovered some lavender that was blooming. I grabbed a bunch of it and took a few photos. The scent was heavenly and unusual for this time of year and not only was I surprised but delighted and a bit intoxicated by the fragrance! I looked at the prompt later in the day and decided to work my experience into the prompt. In creating the haiga, I needed to move away from the temptation to simply state the obvious e.g. describe the photo. Voila!
