Beautiful Messes

the curve of the word

calligraphic & cooling

a drop of water



Seahorse-shaped water drop on white background with haiku: the curve of the word/ calligraphic & cooling/ a drop of water @laleebond


I’d splashed water on the bathroom counter, as I grabbed the hand towel to clean up my mess, the water caught the light just so. My attention shifted like the light on the water. I grabbed my phone. The perfect, unmoving model, the droplets obliged my photo shoot. I played with it and landed on this.


My attention shifted like the light on the water.

The phrase—the curve of the word—slipped into my mind as I packed up for work.


Sometimes making a mess has its own beauty.
