A visual focus

(I’ve spoken about listening to my surroundings before writing a morning haiku – and that’s how i continue to do it daily, but….)

How about a visual focus?

How about looking at an image and allowing one’s unconscious to focus on that image, interact with that image, sit a while with that image and then relate to what’s perceived to create words?

How about bridging the unconscious with the conscious via an image?

So, i tried.

Here’s the haiku i wrote (probably based on yesterday’s post about ‘cutting the cord‘) and below, the image that i used, found at Haiku Eaters, gotpoetry.com:

i watch from here
as you swim away
tears of goodbye
