Precious Little Remains

I have chosen to share with you here a few of the haiku-poems written by Ray Andrews, a friend from Wales. They are lovely little poems, making our heart soft, provoking here a smile, there some tenderness, taking you gently to a place in yourself where silence abides. They are, as one of Ray’s little haikus read, like “Precious little remains On the pathway To the sun”. I have married them with the evanescent photographs of Nicki Gwynn-Jones. Let them both be like little bubbles of meditation in ourself…

I gave my beloved
A wild rose
But did not realise
My heart would be the vase

.

A teardrop
Fell slowly
In an ocean
Of joy

Grow so much
They cease caring 
Who the owner is

.

When the lakes
Mirror surface is broken
No one in their right mind
Would try to repair it

.

Waves break
On the shoreline of ourselves
Sighing with relief
Into the sand

Enjoy many more of these poems and photographs… (READ MORE…)
