Haiku, Watery Wordless Wednesday and Giggles



52 Photos Project (prompt was 'what makes me laugh') ~Son's Xmas Decoration does!




Welcome to our blog where we view life from the  eyes of an artist's soul and explore what creativity can do to enhance the inner spirit.


Today we are exploring what photography, haiku, silence and laughter adds to living a more balanced and creative life. Our exploring is done by linking up with various blogs with a variety of creative styles. Those blogs are 52 Photos Project which is what the first photo above is about as the 'prompt word was laughter). It just makes me giggle when I see it. It is a Christmas decoration with some humor. The other photo is for Outdoor Wednesday and Watery Wednesday taken shortly after a hurricane. Then we have Sensational Haiku and my three haiku are below for the word prompt (fiction). Because it is Wednesday, we are also linked to three Wordless Wednesdays as silence is always good for the soul. They are Aquariann's, Dave's and In Him. Click on any of the colored links to see these blogs.













haiku




I.


it is all fiction
told to the young and restless
live the
 fantasy.


II.


stranger than fiction
we are told by 'they' power 
you know who 'they' are.


III.


ocean waves tell tall tales
ebbing in and out with time
don't go near the water.
(carol l mckenna)




Hugs and namaste,

  3. Hi Carol,

    The water looks calm and at the same time forceful. Water is soothing, nourishing, peaceful at at the same time has so much force to destroy. Yet water is essential for everything!

    Thanks for linking up and Happy Wordless Wednesday!

  11. I think....no, I'm positive, I like the ocean wave haiku best. And that abominable snowman image brings back time for me and our grown kids with the seasonal TV special they never missed.

  22. I needed this this morning--thank you for the post! I also love the Rudyard Kipling quote--you learn that in acting class. Think of a particular smell to bring up a certain emotion--it works pretty well. And thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment--I appreciate it!

  27. My kids used to have nightmares about that snowman! Also the flying monkeys from Wizard of Oz. I suppose I never thought about what I put in front of their eyes back then. Memories, thanks for your silly photo Carol. Visit me at http://christianeveryday.com. Blessings!
