Photos and Haikus IV

Hi Friends,

It’s been a minute on the Photos and Haikus Series. Here goes feature IV on photos from another London based Photographer Femi Anifalaje of  ShotByFemo whose portraits, street photography and structural captures are one of a kind. His Instagram is quite whimsical too and can be followed here .

This one was originally titled ‘The Imperfect Dance’ so I decided to feed off that.

The Imperfect Dance

Rhythm of love, no color

And the beat goes on

If Jesus was black

With a ‘fro so big as mine

Would he look like this?

The thoughts of a man

Known to him and him alone

Life’s Escalators

Photos & Haikus III

Happy new year Friends..

Ring out false pride in place and blood …. The civic slander and the spite… Ring in the love of truth and right… Ring in the common love of good.

A verse from “Ring Out, Wild Bells” , a New Year’s poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

Here’s Photos and Haikus III with photos that signify new beginnings, the rising of a new dawn. Enjoy and be inspired.

Here bursts the  Sun Rise

Calm start to a year of light

Peaceful  beginnings

Sweet red Morning Rose

Fragrant and fresh, nature’s scent

Bloom, beautiful year

Photos and Haikus I

Light and Love on your Sundays Beautiful People..

Once in a while, I’ll put together a few captivating shots I come across and use my gift of words & poetry to complement them while drawing attention to the work of these wonderful artists/photographers . I’ve always had this nifty idea and with the blog, I can now put it to expression..I tag the ongoing series “Photos & Haikus”

I started writing haikus as a pre-teen up until my post-grad college days at the University of Nottingham, UK. The creativity involved eased those lonely, melancholic moments of the life of an international student 🙂

hai·ku
ˈhīˌko͞o,ˌhīˈko͞o/
noun
Haiku poetry -- scroll about 5/6 of the way down the page to find this

Haikus – I call it a lightweight form of poetry, but its not as lightweight as it seems. It’s actually, mostly full of depth as it takes a lot more creativity/ thought process to put together due to the structural  limitations re-syllables, word count while wanting to maintain depth and meaning as much as possible

So my pictorial muse for today’s post is Daniel Emeka’s work (Digital & Graphic Artist).  Male Model: Daniel Emeka himself, Female Model- Merit Iwute, Photography by Timmy Davies.Art Direction: Daniel Emeka.  And these are 3 picks from his project titled ‘‘THE HUSTLE”

I will let my haiku {for each of the three photos I selected} speak for them.

High heat in Lagos

Pure water like soul music

A cool refresher

She sees the future

through dreamy eyes of beauty

 tomato hue lips

As the sun sets low 

He sees as her eyes drops so

to love or to hold

Hope you enjoyed it. For more of Daniel Emeka’s work. Click here

And  I’ll leave you with this joke 😀

Haiku. Every morning.
