Wordless Haiku – October 12, 2014

Wordless haiku_2

caught in fallow times
valley gloams  – darkness deepens
poverty’s harvest

G.s.k. ’14

Created for Ronovan’s Wordless Haiku the prompt words were fallow and harvest. I also posted a variation of this collage on Bastet and Sekhmet’s Library as a Sunday challenge/puzzle.  Have a great day!

      • I’m not sure what you mean but … if literally how to divide words into syllables – take the word literally – lit-er-al-ly 4 syllables, one usually divides the word by the sound breaks in the word … if I’m not sure of the sound breaks I go to a handy dictionary 😉

      • Oh yeah – no, I know that, but in IMAGES…that’s the bit I got stuck on understanding. Like, how do you have a three-syllable photo? Would it be e.g. a photo of a bicycle?

      • Glad to hear I was mistaken, sorry! 🙂 Well, I think of a haiku … and then add photographs that can help illustrate the concept … it’s sort of like doing a rebus … so if you wanted to write:

        along the river bank
        summer excursions
        – bicycles

        I might make my collage with a photo of a river, then a photo or two of summer activities and finish off with a photo of bicycles.

        The game consists of other people looking at the photos and creating their own haiku from the photos as they feel inspired to do so … example

        bubbling water flow
        mountain climbing and swimming
        – bikes left at home

        Visit Ronovan Writes and you’ll get lots more examples … Here’s one of my earlier posts: https://bastet1952.wordpress.com/2014/10/05/wordless-haiku-october-5-2014/

    • Thanks Ronovan … I decided to try the prompt this week … but I admit putting fallow and harvest together was not easy. Thanks for the great prompt and the wonderful idea of the Wordless Haiku! 😉
