Tree on the Avenue

January 20, 2014 § 4 Comments


I had taken this photograph of one of the many trees lining the Main Street Avenue, it struck me that I could look up at these canopies along the avenue and feel a sense of calm and even tranquility but when I look back down and around me I am surrounded by rushing people, rushing vehicles, horns blaring and exhausts fuming.

Whilst processing the image I couldn’t think of much to say about this to put on the blog here…  and I thought I’d take up a suggestion someone once made about using a Haiku Poem to accompany it (for some reason the image gave me an Oriental vibe).  I read up on Haiku and realised that anything I attempted would likely come out wrong… and probably be laughed at by anyone who knows about Haiku, so I decided to at least put in these two paragraphs to accompany the photo, and yes I will put the attempt at Haiku under the photo…  If you don’t know about Haiku, then I’ll be fine, if you do know about Haiku… just don’t laugh out loud :D


Fresh scents, a clear day
Trees adorned with other life
A busy street thrives.

  • C’mon man, haiku? What you trying to do to us? This blog is all about me, so you have to make it digestible for me!

    Just joking, enjoying your linguistic and ocular explorations :)

    …and for those of us wondering what “Haiku” is… According to google definitions it is: ‘a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world.’ That’s TOUGH! I might try it sometime. :D

    I agree with the oriental vibe.
