Peppercorn Road (a Double Haiku)

As usual, during our morning walkie, I take numerous photos, and sometimes the iPhone pic’s instantly inspires a visual idea and later helps prompt me to write about those thoughts … This afternoon I created two Haiku, and then I thought they would be suited to be coupled as one piece.
So, here are my photos and the associated ‘Double Haiku’
