Waking before the alarm clock

the moon-filled sky grey
beyond the cold windowpane
your mouth soft with sleep

I watch you dreaming
your still face alabaster
in the almost light

the curve of your arm
gently flows across the rise
and fall of your breath

the palest morning
tiny hairs translucent
the dip of your spine

    These haikus are sick, and are also entirely relevant to the work I’m making at the moment. Keep at it man, they’re sweet.

      🙂 Thanks! Am I right in that you are doing photo haiku of sorts? The pictures are fantastic!

        Yes the idea behind my images is inspired by haiku as, being at art school, I fancied trying something new. I wouldn’t mind a little collaboration with some of your own particular work. If you’re at all interested contact me through my blog (email should be there somewhere) as I think your work is great!
