Paint Party Friday and Haiku My Heart

Asian Style Brush Painting




Welcome to our blog where I view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and with the help of my assistant, ArtMuse Dog, we explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.



Whether you are viewing art, creating art or even seeing the beauty in nature, you are enhancing your inner spirit. Beauty is every where; one only needs to use their given senses to see, feel, hear, touch, taste and intuit the beautiful life. Today we are sharing with poets and artists who will add to your day with their wondrous creations. We are linked with:

Haiku My Heart


The photo above is another of my Asian style brush paintings and is for Paint Party Friday. My haiku are below the next photo.

'Organic Fireworks'



haiku

organic fireworks
full moon dazzling eyes delight
simple pleasures, here.
-o-

woman in the moon
loving your brilliant mirroring
ah, such fine freedom.
-o-


looking upward sky
moon reflecting wonderment
nature's beauty found.
-o-


The gift of beauty in simple pleasures I wish for you.


Hugs and namaste,


and

QUOTE FOR THE DAY: 'Work is not always required...there is such a thing as sacred idleness, the cultivation of which is now fearfully neglected.' (George MacDonald)
