Haiku

night tide
a small wave
shatters the moon
still water
looking at myself
looking back
muted colours
waiting for memories
to blossom
a shadow
unfolds
butterfly!
the stars have gone
dew drops glisten
on the willow tree
the small bird
lets go the branch
drops the world

By photos,poetry and haiku by Derek Ross

I am a photographer/ poet from Dumfries in South West Scotland. I concentrate on minimalist images and prefer using an iPhone these days. As far as my writing is concerned, I usually write short poems (some in Scots dialect), hence my interest in haiku and related forms.
