out of the dark
leading homeward lies

Day 6

things don't get done

unwritten verse
words flow past and away
yet are not lost

Day 7

new wine

he drinks new wine
harvesting summer thoughts
as raindrops fall

Day 8


expectations –
the train crosses the Lagoon
as I leave Venice

Day 9

Mint Tea

day dreaming
in the secret garden
– mint tea and elves

Day 10

Dawn relections

each dew drop
a world of mist and light –
dawn reflections

These haiga were created for A 19 Planets Art Blog – 30 DOH (Days of Haiga) – today I’ve finished catching up.  I hope to now begin posting a haiga a day for Rick’s yearly challenge.  Bastet.

30 Days of Haiga- 4 haiga to catch up – September 8, 2016

I’ve been so busy I completely forgot that in September my dear friend Rick Daddario from “A 19 Planets Art Blog” hosts the 30 days of haiga challenge … so I’m very very late indeed!  In order to make up I’ll write four haiga today and four tomorrow using Rick’s prompts – then I will proceed as I always do … following my own inspirations … and I hope to see many participants this year!! 🙂

The first four prompts are the following:

  1. new moon 2. fire or campfire 3. wind or breeze 4. gold, golden or yellow

New Moon

silence echoes
under the new moon
summer is over

Warm Breeze

last summer breeze
whispers warm promises
before the snows

Golden Silence

golden silence
in the old alleys
siesta time
