Cherry Tree Ballet
Roseate petticoats swirl in pleasure
Practicing a familiar ballet of
Pirouettes, jetes,and arabesques.
Pink and pearl blossoms
Spent silken petals
Spread their kimono
Over newly green grass.
Silently , hoping not to awaken summer.
I am a native New Yorker , transplanted to Memphis, who is a photographer, teacher, and wanderer. I am inspired by the beauty and stories that resonate from abandoned places and found objects.

beautiful photo and poem. what kind of camera do you use for some of the photos on your blog, the ones that are sort of reversed color?
i see that you like abandoned place too!

I had a point and shoot converted to infrared. Then in photoshop I can reverse the channels. It sounds worse than it is.I love any abandoned places!

well, it is good to see that the conversion works. i’ve loved the infrareds i’ve seen!
i don’t have photoshop, actually. i just use my macbook air’s iphoto system. very limited, but so far i do not consider myself a photographer, more of a point-and-shoot gal.

Very meaningful match of haiku and visual poetry. Nicely done.
