A Haiku by Vicki Parker
Catch a falling leaf
or still a drop of water ...
Breathe in vastitude!
This simple haiku was inspired by the concept of infinity. I couldn't really find the words to bring it to full fruition with iambic pentameter, so I settled for the "less is more" approach of a haiku.
Upon closer examination the eye will notice this photograph is upside down and time is actually reversed.

Thanks Audrey. And thanks Readers Digest. When I tried to use vastitude in a sentence, I decided it was too worthy. It needed a peom instead !!!

Fascinating! My mind never would have noticed if you hadn't pointed out. I was still thinking about infinity.
