Offspring


Seeds
Haiku Friday

Your thoughts are like seeds
be mindful of what you plant
who knows what will sprout


Initially, this photo was dressed up with text like most of the other haiku's.
I decided against using it because I just like the original image.
It's so simple on its own, and I didn't want to complicate it by adding 'stuff'.
I followed the prompt from One Single Impression.....Seeds.
I know I went the literal route, but it is what it is.


Thank you all so very much for the kind comments on my last post.
I was surprised to find that so many others could relate, although I knew I wasn't alone.

I'm so grateful that tomorrow is Friday.
And I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

  1. LOVE your photos.
    I wish I could take a class from you or something.

    I probably need a nicer camera first! I'm saving up, but it will be a while...

  15. .."thoughts -seeds-
    mindful-sprout"
    _ur poem has the feel of an aphorism_
    my total ignorance 'bout the technicalities of photography does not preclude me from enjoying the dimensional effect of what u call a
    "simple" picture..many thanks for sharing..

  16. Lovely image … excellent Haiku'd reminder! Stopping by here earlier might have helped me move past this morning's 'stuckness' at Small Reflections after creating the HaikuFriday/SkyWatch at Sacred Ruminations. I'm glad to find it belatedly anyway. Thank you ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,

  17. Love the photo!
    I always collect seeds from my plants throughout my garden... at first I used to label them and plant them the next year exactly where I wanted them. NOW... I collect them all in the same paper sack and then distribute them the next year wherever... I like it... like me my plants are free-spirted... and when they pop up it is a SURPRISE! Who doesn't love surprises!
    ENJOY your weekend!

  26. Your work is absolutely fantastic. Plus helpful hints when workng with photoshop is also an inspiration. I am going to the Smokey Mountains in a week and know that the shutterbug I carry will have a thrilling time - thanks for the thoughts and points-of-view you share.
