Haiku – Doorway

Haiku - Doorway

I’m back, bursting with haiku and poetry inspired by one of the most inspiring places I’ve ever visited – the third largest island in the Ionian sea, the ancient world of Zante – named after King Dardanos of Troy’s son, Zakynthos and with a history that extends right back into the Neolithic age.

This cave was captured on a boat trip (standby for future pictures), and it really sparked my imagination – how about yours?

I return feeling touched by the muses – hope that the creative injection lasts.

    1. Thanks 🙂 It reminded me of the Dwarven caves in JRR Tolkien’s work…. I am curious about the life beyond all the caves, but in particular this one – with the almost symmetrical doorway – it looks like it was carved that way – more deliberate than erosion anyway. These islands were the refuge of long dead smugglers and pirates, the landscape presents so many nooks and crannies in which to hide. Imagination runs riot!
