I Quote, You 'Ku - Day 28

“The richer our sensory environment and the greater our freedom to explore it, the more intricate will be the patterns for learning, thought and creativity.”

~Carla Hannaford 

Your challenge is to write a haiku or tanka (or choose one of your previously published works) that has a connection with the themes/feelings/images of the above quote, without just restating what has appeared in the text, to create a haibun. Play around with it and see what you come up with. Enjoy!

  1. i turn the radio off
    to hear the wheels turn


  2. build up your senses
    so you can learn everything
    in the smallest glance

  3. climbing up the height queue of ants

  4. soft brush
    the wheat field ready
    for harvest

  5. July 28: environment

    scent of lavender
    from horizon to horizon

    Gary B

  6. dew on spider's webs
    fractals from kaleidoscopes
    are only fleeting
