Artists and Poets


Art Pages  ~ haiku pages will be included soon and then the cover



Above photo is the first stage of my Sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project 2013. As indicated, I will be including pages of my haiku and then will stitch the cover and pages 
together. Hopefully, I will have this completed within the next two weeks.
The theme, obviously is my 'blessing bowls' that I have been creating for several recent posts.

Sharing today with:

Paint Party Friday

Haiku My Heart 

Creative Everyday


So hop on over to see the wonderful variety of artists at Paint Party Friday and Creative Everyday. At Haiku My Heart, you will find very talented haiku poets. Haiku originated in Japan and  is poetry based upon lines and syllables in each line. I tend to write in the rather classic form of 17 syllables and a 5-7-5 sequence. There are a variety of ways to write haiku.


haiku


waiting, lagging on
be present, precious moment
cherish, let go.
-o-

being in the now
taoism emphasizes concept
ancient, living now.
-o-

breathe in nature's air
see all round, below, above
beauty surrounding.
-o-


Hope you are enjoying this post and will enjoy those we are sharing with today.

Wishing you a loving and fun weekend.




Hugs and namaste,

ents, thoughts or questions to delight us all in the day, especially, ArtMuse Dog ^_^

  20. Love your Asian style Carol. That's a great idea to paint the pages separate then stitch them together! I haven't decided yet if I'm doing the sketchbook project again. Can't wait to see it finished. Happy PPF! :-) ~Rhonda

  32. I'm so envious... I have not even begun my Sketchbook Project. Last year, I swore to myself that I would not wait until the last moment again... I better get cracking! ;-).

    Your work on yours is wonderful...a great inspiration. I love the fact that you're including your haikus along with your beautifully colorful sketches.

  38. Hello Carol, It is great seeing all of your note pages laid out together. I love your haiku. Patience is one of my greatest teachers, probably the thing I struggle with the most... I'm finding new ways to be with the letting go, patience and letting go... much like your wise words of being in the breath and in the now. Thank you!
