Haiga 804 - Light Haiku 15
Haiku by Elaine Cleveland (USA). Artwork by myself.
I remember I was fascinated by a pair of colored windows in an old library building located near my home. It was about seascape: sea, wave, and sailing ship. I did not know the name then, only much later learned it as stained glass. And still much later, I was able to see the real staindgrasses, like rose windows in Europe.
Also near by was an old house with a lot of screen paintings, not only on the paper screen, but also on wooden boards.
These artworks provided favorite spots for me, where i could just stand or sit around alone, simply wondering and admiring. My precious moments in the childhood. Such experience seems to linger even today.
