Photos - Poems

Sometimes photos remind me of fragments of poetry that have become lodged in my head over the years. Other times, things I see on walks also remind me of the same and I try to capture an image that reflects the words I remember. Mostly it is the Japanese Haiku and the traditional Chinese poetry, that speaks to me most deeply.
