Power:

Rivulets of grass,

In the cracked concrete driveway –

Gently meander.

About Basho Barr

Inspired by the great Japanese Haiku master, Matsuo Basho, I try to capture a daily moment in a small but perfectly formed Haiku.

    Love the contrast between the concrete and gentle grass. =)

      Thanks again. There are so many contrasts in this image. I love the way the driveway is really straight and yet the grass meanders like a flowing stream. Even though the cracks are actually straight lines, it turns them into apparent gentle curves and softens everything. To me, it symbolises compassion, where true power lies (devoid of all fear).
