Haiku Tu

I know there's still horrible weather in some places, and autumn is on its way down under. Spring is springing here in this part of the world, but I took these photos a couple of months ago and haven't posted them yet. Maybe now is a good time. And I wrote another haiku to go with them.


the stones and the fog
shrouding the winter hillside
silent voices rest

  7. So sad that all they have is Sawmill man and wife and child.

    Wonderful haunting atmosphere in those photos.

    And yes, we had a blizzard that dumped about 2 ft of snow on us yesterday. Today it is -18 C with the windchill. Jamaica can't come soon enough.

  11. What an absolutely magical spot Val. It's so peaceful and kinda gorgeously spooky. My dad lost half his left hand when he was working in a saw mill three days after my sibling #3 was born. Guess it could have been a lot worse huh? xx

  13. Beautiful pictures in the fog! My Dad always loved to drive through cemeteries and so do I. You can feel the dampness in these images. Sad to see the family with no name. I can think of many stories about their demise. Pictures look peaceful yet spooky.

  16. Wonderfully evocative photos, Val. I can feel the mist on my face. Oh, the stories that could be spun about sawmill man and family, how intriguing. I miss Ross Bay cemetery in Victoria, BC, a fantastic Victorian graveyard by the ocean.
