haiku, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

the moon chases clouds
million falling stars appear
memory of rain

evening. . . parsnip
music. . . The Sheltering Sky, Ryuichi Sakamoto


  1. Lovely, Parsnip. I feel as if my life has been similarly a case of moon chasing clouds, and many falling stars. Thanks.

  2. Parsnip, I'm blown away by these photos of the starry sky. Are they yours? Fabulous. And I love the haiku.

  3. The images the haiku bring are as brilliant hued and the picture you took. Good stuff.

    No more falling stars or moon chasing for you and no more walking into cars either.
    Keep that leg quiet and get well...

    Thanks, the photos are mine except when I use but give credit to Japanese Son.
    Usually I don't play with the color, in Tucson you don't have to but when taking a "point and click" photo at evening ... you have to play with it to bring out what can be hiding... from lighting, color to the rain drops.

    Thank You...
    I like haikus they make me really think...
    This is what happens when your stand in the rain trying to take a photo... same camera I take in the pool. I know bad bad bad.

    Thank you... It all seem to work out... I have several big fat rain drop photos from that storm.
    I do worry about the lighting strikes, we always get lots of hits right where I live but I don't have the camera for them.

  5. Gorgeous haiku and image. The rain drops do look like falling stars. :)

  6. I love your photographs, and the addition of the haiku is wonderful, it feels like it takes us even further into your artist's mind.

    Sometimes I am just lucky when I stand in the rain and try to take picture .... before the lighting strikes !
    My doges look at me like I am crazy... they do not like the water at all !

    Thank you
    I am quite new to writing but I am enjoying reading and writing them.
    According to a site I just when on, the last line should be a surprise...
    The photographs are really fun to play around with.
