A Sunset, with Trees


Last Sunset - 2008
Photographed, December 31, 2008

A Sunset Haiku
The sky is lovely.
Lines and trees get in the way;
Not the best photo.

A beautiful sunset indeed!

That is easily the most self-deprecating haiku ever :-)

Tree branch tracery
filters setting sun spectrum
and frames its glory.

(One Haiku always creates another...)

Louise said...

It looks as if there's a horizontal rainbow rather than a sunset. I think it's great.

I like the trees and lines. Your world is beautiful. Treelines remind me of how close we are to heaven but still here after all!

What a beautiful post, is there anything more dramatic than the limbs of a leafless tree against the evening sky?
