Haiku - In The Deep, Dark Cave

 
In the deep, dark cave,
There isn't light that can shine,
But the light of man.

The hidden beauty,
That Nature squirrels away,
Man's light makes splendid.

Praise the spelunker,
Who roots out the passages,
and gives them to us.

hidden between mountains,

caves

inscribed on the wall

on the stone,

among animals and barefoot

hunters.

Love this photo, and the haiku is perfect for it.

But this was over a year ago. Are you hoarding you work for a show?

Gosh what a great shot this is, the colors the shades and the light makes you want to dive into it and explore.

Thanks for your constant support on my blog lately.

And I hope your wife and sister are out of missery with there rings for most of the time.
