Naviarhaiku180 – thick mist and the loudest of bird song

This week’s haiku is a new evocative poem written by Rob Forest

Rob says about his relationship with nature:

“As much as our culture wants us to position ourselves as mere spectators or consumers of the natural world, the fact remains that our relationship is one of full involvement and participation, however well disguised it may be. My writing has essentially become a process of listening to the natural world, observing my role within it and feeding this back through my writing and music to give a voice to this relationship and encourage others to shed the disguise.“
