Pathway to Fantasy - Haiku poem

Source

Dreams and fantasy

My heart was waiting for you

Searching you found me.


After dating as teenagers, Nick and I took separate paths in life, only to find each other and fall in love again 30 years later.


Thank you my friends for the inspiration.

Many thanks to Mike mckbirdbks for the title.

Many thanks to Gail Happyboomernurse for spotting the heart in the picture in my hub A Sunday Afternoon Walk in Autumn.

Hello MM. What a beautiful love story you tell, Nick and yourself in a garden paradise of your own making. I look forward to more of your stunning photography, charming stories and heartfelt poetry as 2012 progresses.

Sweet haiku and awesome picture. The picture is very alluring and a little spooky at the same time. It looks like a forest where mythical creatures might live. :)

Hi OP, changing the photo from colour to black and white in photoshop and then re-introducing a little colour transformed the photo, it gives it a 'fairy tale' look, I agree there could well be some mythical creatures in there somewhere....

Thank you for dropping by and your great comments, enjoy your day and a Happy New Year!

Hi MM,

I missed this when it first came out but am glad I found it today. I love your heartfelt haiku about love, fantasy and love refound.

Thanks for the shout-out about the heart in the picture. It's a stunning photo in every way but the heart at the end of the trail is so unexpected and delightful. Now your haiku has given such a romantic tale behind this fantasy pathway. Voted up.

This art employs such an economy of words to paint the picture and relate the story...the reader can almost feel the pressure in the choice of every word and see its intended us to successfully achieve the goal. Good Job here! WB
