Four Instagram photo-poems

Here is a small selection of haiku and senryu photo-poems from my Instagram account: two from my “typewriter series”, and two from my “handwriting series”.

I hope you enjoy them!  :- )

Bath Towel

 

Ginkgo Tree and Me

 

Bursting

 

Out on a Limb


More of my Instagram photo-poems can be found at www.instagram.com/billwaterspoet.

Oh, and regarding my poem “out on a limb”, I used a broken twig I found on the ground for that shot. I would never stick a thumbtack into a living tree.  ;- )
