a flower turns towards the sun;
still life awakens
~ ~ ~
Today, I'm sharing with you a haiga, which is a combination of a haiku and image. This flower bouquet is on display on my dining room glass table in my sun room. I had so much fun taking pictures from different angles, and I edited the first photo to make it look painterly. The haiku was inspired by the flower as it turned towards the sun. To me, this is a metaphor for the beauty and miracle of life, to be cherished, every single day.
Here is the original photo, straight out of the camera and without any editing. One of my interests is interior design. I love decorating! I made our sunroom into a dining room. It's a simple and contemporary design with a rectangular table with a glass top and black iron chairs. In the corner, I put a bench where we can sit and enjoy the view from the large sun room windows. I love fresh flowers especially now in the Fall and then Winter when we no longer have flowers in the garden. They add so much color and beauty!
I'm sharing my haiga with Carpe Diem and Pixel Dust Photo Art, which coincidentally both had the same prompt of still life. I enjoyed this challenge so much and thank the hosts, Kristjaan and Bonnie, for coming up with this creative prompt.
