Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes….
Very nice! Thank you, Neil!
Several years later, I was reading, “A Writer’s Diary” by Virginia Woolf (edited by Leonard Woolf) and I kept finding haiku in her words. For example:
A very fine skyblue day--
my window completely filled
with blue for a wonder
Lovely! Thank you, Virginia!
This prompted me to write my own blue window haiku:
First day of spring--
filled with blue
Then, on a trip to the South of France, I became obsessed with photographing windows with blue shutters.
And so, always being inspired by “blue” windows, I chose it for my blog title.
