Artists, Poets and Photographers Friday

Welcome to the world of creative souls human and animal. Our spirits are filled with expectation of light and delights of the season.We are sharing art, haiku and photos today. We are also linked with some very creative blogs that are listed below.




Is it Christmas yet? Fish treats coming from Santa.


With Holidays approaching, I decided to 'keep it simple'  and just do small creations. In fact, that is one of my daily mantras and definitely will become part of my daily behavior now and for the New Year. ~ Preparing for art shows and holiday can be rather hectic. ~ So I am repeating my mantra ~ Keep It Simple and Grateful ~ 'Attitude of Gratitude.'








Birdie that looks like I feel at times ~ trying to accomplish tasks ~ for the Holidays.














I'm waiting for Santa Claus ~ I heard he was coming to Cape Ann, MA.




We are sharing our creativity with other creative bloggers listed below:

  3. The birdie (in the art work) is cute, his expression maybe looks a little overwhelmed. Birds and fish are so cute and colorful. The real bird has his own little private island out there.
