The Snowscape. Tranquil.
A Table with cloth of white.
Clean on for the Spring.
A Table. Waiting.
Trees and fences look so grey.
Spring seems far away.
Look for the hidden colour.
Look deep for the branch of … Gold.
Jo the Po: I have used the form of a Japanese Haiku, followed by that of a Japanese Tanka (5-7-5 and 5-7-5-7-7). There is a mystery to solve in the photograph … if you can spot it!
