Haiku for Carpe Diem Haiku





Roses still growing despite the weather ~ for Macro Monday





Welcome to our creative Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. With holidays approaching am taking time for me, family and friends thus, I am combining some posts to limit some blogging time and also want to be able to respond to bloggers' comments which we enjoy so much. Are you busy also with the preparation of the holiday? What holiday is foremost in your plan? Winter Solstice? Christmas? Kwanza? and more?What is your favorite part to the holidays? 

I love the lights. The tree lights, the window lights and Winter Solstice a time of honoring the light beginning to return ever so slowly. I also love Christmas and celebrating with family and friends. I am also preparing for another Holiday Show that will run through the 23rd of December. I will have some photography and mixed media being displayed and for sale. All of these times are creative to me and enhance and strenghten my creative spirit.

We are sharing with:

sunday sketches
post cards from paradise
carpe diem haiku
creative everyday month

macro monday
my favorite photo

our world tuesday

Hope you have enjoyed our array of creative expressions and will check all the creativity on the blogs listed above.

Wishing you the best in each day.


Hugs and namaste,

  1. Lovely photo of Miley and Owen.

    The roses are beautiful and so too is the photo of the winter morning.

    I haven't started thinking of Christmas yet
    but suppose I had better get my head in gear!

    Have a good week

  2. The great question is not a great question.

    There are others which are greater.

    But these are my secrets.

    Have a good day.

  6. Great post, Carol! Love all the photos and Haiku! With the recent birth of my second Grandchild, I haven't even thought about the approaching Christmas season until now. First thing on my list will be to paint up two Christmas ornaments for my two beautiful granddaughters. :)

  7. Thank you! No word verification, just the Blog Owner approval message. :))) I greatly dislike commenting on blogs that use Word Verification. It's so frustrating as some of the words are very difficult to read and can take more than one attempt to get it right. I tend to move on if my second attempt is rejected. I've never had Word Verification on my blog as I just wouldn't put my readers through the frustration when there are other options?

  12. As I read your haiku for today's Carpe Diem I had to smile and look outside. Today here a raging storm with heavy rains is torturing the country. Last leaves falling and some leaves struggle to stay where they are, but they loose after a while. It's really nature's cleaning day here. Well ... I think that I have to sweep my garden tomorrow (smiles).
    What a wonderful created haiku Carol and ArtMuse Dog. Really stunning haiga. Thank you for sharing this wonderful creativity with Carpe Diem.

    As for what holiday I am looking forward to the most, I have to say Christmas - which is also my daughter's birthday. She has been studying in Scotland and I can not wait to see her (and hug her!) again!

  66. Love the roses and the sunset. Christmas is all about the family but I do love going into London and looking at all the wonderful window decorations and lights. Everywhere is so festive. Must take some photos of the decorations and share them soon.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Beautiful and breathtaking! Your haiku poems are also very good. I love Christmas decorations. My twin and I got a lot as gifts over the years and we bought some every year! I also love the lights. All the very best at the sale. Your work should do very well. Take care and enjoy the holiday season.

  68. For some reason, my computer won't allow me to make a comment at day 10. But, I wanted you to know I had visited. I get annoyed when a glare comes off a piece of art with or without the flash. Sometimes I take the piece outdoors to photograph and the glare isn't as bad.
