Empty Space

Light
shines through
the empty space
where the tree once
stood.

    • Yes, it looks bare and somehow exposed. Maybe I’ll plant something a bit small against our fence to fill the gap and still allow light to penetrate! On the plus side – we did get the wood to burn on our wood burning stove.

  • I love the haiku feel of this one. Very nicely done. The Japanese have a word for empty space in poetry and painting. It is “ma”. In photography, I believe it’s called ‘negative space.

    • Thank you for your kind words and information. Yes I have heard the term ‘negative space’ in connection with art but had not considered my empty ‘tree space’ as such – a different and interesting view of things!
