A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words, or Several Haiku

A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words, or Several Haiku

I saw this picture a few nights ago on a friend’s Instagram account, and then dreamed about it.  In my dream, I wrote various very simple haiku to accompany the photo.  It is so lovely, and almost begs its viewer to create a story around the female figure walking away from the camera.

What do you think when you look at the photo?

Perhaps she is simply on a stroll, daydreaming.

she strolls peacefully
framed by the oak canopy 
dreaming her future

Or is she walking away from something?

having decided,
she slowly left her old life
never looking back

Maybe she is walking toward something, or someone.

joyful beats her heart
this journey just beginning
there will be no end

What do you think? I will reveal the real story and the location in a day or two.
