Margaret Gosden

I like Margaret's art: she likes a haiku. So.........


The red sun sinks as the white moon rises.
I stand ankle-deep in the silvered water
That washes over the paling-pierced sand.

More moon-mystery here:

That is lovely! I would like to add the haiku to the print itself. Thank you. My brain is working overtime as these early works seem to be still relevant and can inspire what is supposed to be the highest form of art, a haiku!

your words compliment the painting well.

I read somewhere...

I have made this letter longer than usual, because I lack the time to make it short (Je n'ai fait celle-ci plus longue parceque je n'ai pas eu le loisir de la faire plus courte)~Blaise Pascal, Lettres Provinciales (1656-1657), no. 16.

Writing a sizzling Haiku probably takes more time ?

The painting was so nice and the poem compliments it, so well.
