Haiku : An unrhymed Japenese lyric style of poetry usually having a fixed 3 line 17 syllable form. Such as .... ...The red blossom bends ....and drops it's dew to the ground. ....Like a tear, it falls. The first Haiku I got from a Haiku site, this one is my poor offering ..... Doves coo from the trees ....Like a thousand lit candles ....night embraces all.

Nice haiku... you put a lot of thought into this piece I can tell. For that, and for the piece's elegant... I give it a 10.

" ... this one is my poor offering ... " ??

One further aspect of your art that I truly love and appreciate is how you would set the stage with your narratives. And, if this sounds harsh I don't intend it as such ... but, do away with those six words ... please. As the rest is most befitting of your image.

... a voice is heard coming from the wings ...

"Doves coo from the trees ....Like a thousand lit candles ....night embraces all"

... the lights come up ... and onto the stage ...

A beautifully rendered flame.

I, myself have tried a few in this vein, and I could never match the cleanliness of your 'line work' here. That is no small feat as I have learned. You have mastered another technique and variation of Apophysis's potential.

Another great example of yours is Waking Dream. Such beautiful and clean lines.
