Haiku: Boulders, Rocks, Stones and Pebbles

Haiku for One Deep Breath:



a granite landscape
in the cleft of a boulder
a tree shelters




these fallen stones
a roof open to the sky
the hearth grows cold


And a bonus photo, which I love but haven't come up with a haiku for yet:



Feel free to leave a haiku in response to the last photo.

All photos were taken in Scotland during September.

Lovely photos, especially the first one. I love trees that manage to hang on in unlikely places like that

beautiful photos with equally beautiful words to match...you have left me wanting more!

& when i pondered the last, this came to me...

where do i belong
small stone in big boulder world
stuck in the middle

Lovely combinations! The photos are wondrous and the words are beautiful!
I wish I could respond by haiku!

These are wonderful. The haiku makes me wonder what stories the stones could tell!

Mine's up at Writing in Faith: Poems

Cathrine, I am a sucker for stones and rocks and this post pleases my soul!
Love it.
The haiku? that came to me was:
Catch me
I'm
falling ...

There is a form of haiku that uses humour - rengu? maybe that's what my weak effort is trying to be!
Your haiku now, well, that's just lovely.
And I know what you mean about being 'let off the hook' re having to post - I can't wait until the 30th and then I am taking a loooong break (will probably still read other people's posts though.)

in the crevices
small rocks nestle like eggs
in a stony nest.
