Haiku Tuesday: Depressionist art

Shadows meander
peacefully amongst the pines,
silent wolves keep still.

My friend Mike told me about Ellen Dittebrandt who was an impressionist artist living in Oregon who died in a car accident in 2014. This image is generated by Stable Diffusion and looks nothing like her art but, her name was used in the prompt. Clearly AI art-gen still has a ways to go.

Solitude never
feels so all alone, if you
share it with nature.

This image came from a simpler prompt which merely named the previously named artist. This engine, Stable Diffusion, although trained on 5.6 billion images gleaned from the internet, fails to appreciate the true nature of Dittebrandt’s work.

Styx allows passage
to any who pay the price,
annihilation.

This was created using Dall-e2. Hades sailing the river styx in the style of raphael.

I recommend Ellen Dittebrandt’s artwork, it’s rather pleasing.

Haiku Tuesday: Unrecoverable

Eventually
trauma fades like rotting wood,
residue remains

Crushed like a tin can
our metal conveyance fails,
loved ones suffering.


Best laid plans founder
when submerged troubles surface
and pull you below.
