top class ascent to darkness
into the unknown
Our 52 Week Photo Challenge prompt this week is SOLID
The photo was taken on my trip to Japan in November. Oh how I loved those gardens, so calming and perfectly pruned. The rocks – solidity! And the bushes clipped to make the bushes look like a solid form.
Ronovan’s Haiku Prompt words are: CLASS and FIRM
the two sentences work like this:
solid underfoot, top class ascent to darkness
top class ascent to darkness, into the unknown
As I understand it Japanese gardens are full of symbolism and often depict aspects of a journey through life. This path could represent a journey to ‘heaven’ or the end of this life ready to be reincarnated into the next.
I have made an attempt at the two opposing concepts of something being known, solid or firm and then in the second sentence,’ unknown’, no longer solid and known. Do you think it works?
