windmill

Carpe Diem #688, windmill


The host of Carpe Diem lives in the Netherlands.  He has provided two haiga that show and share beauty in words and photos.  Here are his two.



In about one year my husband and I will be visiting the beautiful areas where the above photos were made.  In contrast to the above I give you a windmill from the Kansas, USA, plains.  The windmills of the plains were used primarily for bringing water to the surface. The ability to obtain water in the semi arid central plains enhanced the colonization of these areas by immigrants.  Yet another stab in the lives of the Native Americans inhabiting the plains in the 1800's.

A slightly different perspective of the same windmill and a chance to try a different technique.  Using words to address a time that so many machines and humans face.  A time past our prime, a time of brokenness or even just a time of feeling useless.
