  7. Love the juxtaposition of the Bench with the background.. it sits smack dab in the middle, dominating black with the land, water and mountains(?) of grey, leaving the glow alone. Love the pic and the Words are in sync with it.

  8. Thank you so much Rashmi I rushed down for this sunset over the water last night. So the grey is the water. When I left the sky turned red and normally I would have got that shot but I left to go home in a hurry because I did not lock the house LOL. Don't tell anyone I said that.

  11. Oh a few ways I could interpret this. Two people, embraced by the evening, sat on the bench awaiting the sun to burst it's last fiery light and the red after-glow. This is so really romantic and sensual in how I pick up your thread. What I see are two people in intimacy reaching their peak and than that romantic after-glow. This is very nice! I used free interpretation ... I hope that's OK with you. Anyway ... loved it!

  16. Hi Milli. Meeting nearly after a month, as I was not participating much due to my wife's illness.

    Now. Your Haiku on sunset and photograph are beautiful, as usual. Thanks for sharing. Mine is at - http://jayaramanms.multiply.com/journal/item/254/CREATIVE_CHALLENGE_17

  17. Very nice indeed Milli, and i love your pic: it compliments your words beautifully. The pic is very dreamy and poignant

  18. The photo compliments the words which define the picture. The empty bench also seems to be waiting as your haiku pulls me in waiting the after glow, is it sunset or a warm heart sitting close? or both!. Loved this, wow awesome girl...
