Each time the wave breaks

The sketch is from my ideas book- Inspired by the Haiku below. The finished painting is now languishing at Sea Green in Brightlingsea.

Each time the wave breaks
The crow 
Gives a little jump

~ Nissha ~

'We live in a dynamic universe and we are called upon to respond. Haiku writers, respond to the world through their writing. Haiku, by revealing the hidden affinity between things, confirms the basic interconnectedness of all life.'
When I feel at odds with the world, when not all is going to plan and I can't see the bigger picture, I think of this haiku. Responding to the moment is the key.

The raven becomes one with the waves and I go back to where I started.
