Haiku 3

 

Deathly cold darkness

adorns Autumn’s fallen leaves

with Winter’s halo

With huge apologies to those who have been with me on this journey for a while, this is the third time I have posted Haiku 3 but I haven’t yet been able to better it, and it speaks to me each year at this time.

1618. Leonard Lane (17)

Regular readers will know I don’t like to post pieces unless I know the artist, but sometimes it simply isn’t possible. This really unusual piece in Leonard Lane is in a more traditional fine art style, but added to that it incorporates some leaves that have been sprayed with metallic paint which make up the subject’s headdress.

When I see pieces like this, I guess that they are by artists wanting to give some outdoor work a go. Leonard Lane is probably the perfect place for this on account of it being a quiet backwater full of graffiti and very few ‘enforcers’. An interesting piece.
