a river’s song
darkness settles first
in its stones

    As many of us know it's unusual to find a haiku by Sandi that is not accompanied by some amazing artwork.

    So this is a grand opportunity to just see how powerful her haiku stands alone:

    a river’s song
    darkness settles first
    in its stones


    Wonderful haiku!

    warm regards,

    The character River Song in the British science fiction series "Dr. Who" immediately came into my mind as I read the first line.

    Night turns the stones dark. But the river bubbles along, singing its song, holding onto, and reflecting back the light.
