Haiku 6

Like legs of a centipede
Palms wave and bow
worshipping the wind


About Don

My name is Don Scrooby and I live in the United Kingdom. I have a deep love for nature and open spaces and one of my great loves in life is sketching, particularly in pen and water colour and occasionally in pencil. I’m quite new at the art and I sketch mainly from photographs I’ve taken, but also enjoy outdoor sketching. My sketchbooks, although no great shakes, are important to me and I decided to create my blog in order to share some of their contents with those who may be interested.

    This take totally caught me of guard. That’s a good thing, for it seldom happens now that I am of fossil-dom age.


  2. I can almost hear the wind whistling through those palms now 🙂

      Thanks Jacquie. Glad you said that. My experience is that the sound of the wind blowing through Palms is different to its sound through other trees. its more of a whistling kind of sound than a rustling one. You probably think I’m a little crazy. Thanks again for your comment.

    Why was the centipede dropped from the insects soccer team?
    Cause it took too long to put it’s boots on.

    You have a wonderful way with words! Those palm fronds do resemble centipede legs…


  8. Beautiful. Makes this chilly gray Toronto Saturday feel a little bit warmer.


  9. Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back!
