Haiga 631 Kuniharu Shimizu haiku


Haiku (or senryu) and photo by myself.
Again, a haiga from Los Angles. There are so many celebrities residing in this town, but for ordinary people, chance of getting to know such people is very little, like looking up at the leaves of palm tree high above. What we see at our eye level is only the dull trunks that resemble the elephants' legs.

Hollywood pavement,
my palm picks up dust
from stars' handprints

I love this!

It's so apt too, as we don't see the leaves close up, only at a distance.

Great haiga again!
