If I may be so bold as to steal your picture, Silver, I'd like to revive an old game that we used to do. We would put up a picture and then we would write a haiku that is inspired by it. Want to give it a try, ya'll?

Cloud speckled background
Guarding clear blue gentleness
And aspects of dreams
Stop looking at the light. Instead, look at what is being illuminated by the light.

Good one. I like that "clear blue gentleness".

Thanks Witt.

I'm late to haiku so let me see if I have the rules right.

First line has to be five syllables, second line has to be seven and the last line has to be five.
Stop looking at the light. Instead, look at what is being illuminated by the light.

Crystal blue playground
Wets my tranquility thirst
Work hours speed away
Never Let Yesterday's Pain
Ruin Tomorrow's Dreams
