Seeing

our minds refracting ~ into a thousand colours ~ the whole is revealed —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Contrast

half-moon in the night ~ half in shadow half in light ~ facets brought in sight —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Frühjahr

late-afternoon light ~ when winter is almost spring ~ the idea of warmth — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Collected

I’ve gathered the light ~ that was folded in your song ~ like rays of the sun — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Light and dark

when night comes begging ~ with its baggage on its back ~ we escape in dreams — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa — Photo: Durban 2016/04

Grounded

standing on this rock ~ my two feet firmly planted ~ in tomorrow’s light — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Disclosure

and then I was taught ~ that an essence is revealed ~ in light and lightness — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa
