Haiga 522 Carol Purington haiku 2


Haiku by Carol Purington. Artwork by myself. Photo credit: Joe Amon, The Denver Post.
I was looking at a series of photographs at The Denver Post website. The series was about wrestlers in a small town school. The photo I used here is one of them. The farm, the barn, cow, all these reminded me of the Woodslawn Farm where Carol has spent most of her life, experiencing the nature only through the window of her room.

I made the photo very light, almost fading in the mist, because the haiku mentions something intangible, more of the impression rather than sketching of actual sky. I could have used just the gradation of blue here, but then that would be too boring so I added this photograph.
