Morning Haiku and Waka – February 18, 2015

 I really enjoyed this logo from Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and thought I’d show it to you all …. truly delightful! The first two paintings one by Paul Cézanne and the second by George Seurat are part of two prompts for this months Carpe Diem Haiku Kai theme dedicated to Impressionism for which I wrote a haiku for each.  The tanka is about me.

another year gone
a new calendar begins
and still each year
seems like the one before
only the mirror changes

  1. Happy Birthday, dearest Georgia!
    A great post — this made my heart happy. Yes…. we really need to question that mirror from time to time. But such is life. 🙂

  3. I got here a bit late it seems but at least it’s still the right day to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
    As for the mirror it’s rather useless really as it only shows the wrong side, the outside doesn’t matter it’s the inside that counts! I’d say you’re much younger than the mirror must tell you 🙂
