Artists and Poets Friday


Universal Queen


FRIDAY'S POST ~ Friday, day of artists and poets.  Illusive muse managed a walk in between rain showers today. Creative spirit restored momentarily. In a previous life, I must have risen from the ocean, my spirit thirsts for daily walks by the ocean. Do you have a favorite place to renew your creative energy?

The above photo is a creation I started yesterday and completed the first in a series today. There is always more to be done on a creation. Yet, today, like me, the painting will continue to be a 'work in progress'. My sketchbook is finally complete and will send it off next week. Then begin the process of developing some type of publication of haiku and a bit of brush painting. My haiku for today is below. Today we are sharing with:

paint party friday
haiku my heart
creative everyday
carpe diem haiku


haiku
leaves falling ever
branches shedding, lightening
load lessening fall.
-o-

going to ground now
cocooning into night season
rising again, spring.
-o-
birth, growth, sleeping dead
awake to new life, seasoned
fresh, a new being.
-o-


Hope you enjoyed your visit viewing a piece of art work and reading some haiku over a gentle cup of tea. For more delightful creations visit the links listed above.

Wishing you a peaceful and healing weekend.


Hugs and namaste,

  17. So lovely Carol, this painting and your haiku... She is the night sky over your beautiful words... my favorite line is "cocooning into night season..." Have a beautiful weekend!

  18. Very nice work. I just returned from a wonderful hike in the nearby woods with my dear friend and feel wonderfully rejuvenated and relaxed. We need to stay connected to nature in our hectic lives! The Queen of the Universe reminds me of how Mary, mother of Jesus has been portrayed in art through the ages, which is probably not just a coincidence as she embodies many beautiful qualities as I'm sure the queen of the universe also does.

  19. your universal queen is lovely-she'd make a beautiful Christmas card! Anytime I'm outside in nature-especially by the ocean I am most inspired. Wonderful haikus. Happy PPF!

  26. Beautiful Goddess Queen! I get outdoors to to revive my creative spirit and it that doesn't work I put on my grandmothers sweater ( she passed 36 years ago) , grab a cup of hot tea and meditate. SHe was the first Creative Spirit I knew and she taught me so much about life.

  37. I love your Madonna 0 thats what she looks like to me considering my background - but she was just the representation of the archetypal feminine anyway --- Friday is the day of Venus - how right to say the day of artists and poets! I generally just go for a walk down the street in front of my house - it ends in a valley with a pasture with horses and that's the best thing ever - ahve a great weekend thx for stopping by!!

  38. Such a sweet and peaceful painting. I love it - happy PPF x

  39. I love the ocean too, and wish I lived closer to it. Any water does me well; luckily we live by many lakes, streams, and waterfalls. Beautiful queen and lovely haikus!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Lovely words and universal queen to go with it. I firmly believe that the ocean can be healing, as well as all of nature really.

  41. I'm so glad I stopped by... I love the haiku, and reminds me how liberating it can be to do a haiku-a-day... and think in haiku :) -- And the sweet Art Muse Do of yours has captured my heart! My 1st encounter w/that breed of dog was just last year, w/a friend..(the dog's name is Violet) -- and she has such a big presence..and its so healing to be around her... I feel the same way when I look at your dog... so thank you so much for sharing her, and your wondrous creativity!

  50. So simple and beautiful, Carol. Your words and art alwys bring me a smile and make me think. I too love the ocean and feel that I must have once lived there, either IN or beside the waters, but rain seems to be waht fills my well of creativity. When I see a gray sky and thunderclouds, I immediately feel a rush of inspiration and want to dash up the stairs to my studio and spend a cozy day painting. My absolute fantasy would be to have a tin roof, to make the sound of raindrops even louder!
    XOX,
    Kathy
