PHOTOS, HAIKU POSTS and WORDLESS WEDNESDAY


HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS






A CREATIVE HARBOR


Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist soul and explore what creativity can do to enhance the inner spirit.


Today we are exploring, creative photography, haiku and wordless blogs. We are linked with: see below


The prompt for 52 Photos was ' Where do I go when it is time to go home?' Well, the photo above is where I go, on the couch with my Assistant, ArtMuse Dog. She is photographed 'in her perch'  and I sit on the other end of the couch with my lap top, sketchbook, or book always with music in the background. Our home is 'our sanctuary' ~ 'far from the maddening crowd' when we choose to be so.
Hope you enjoy the photographers, writers, poets and other creative types that we are linked with us today and will visit, leave supportive comments for all of us who work hard at 'creating'. Have fun. Don't forget to read my haiku below and consider joining my blog hop ~ thanks ^_^

Prompt for Haiku Sensational was 'nature'.


haiku


I.

rain drops falling on

window pane, snow predicted

rain watering land.


II.

spring buds, crocuses

peeping up to cheer the day

glad to see you bloom.

III.

robin red breast, who?

visible soon when spring comes

dancing in the air.

MAGICAL, MACRO MONDAY and CREATIVE EVERYDAY








A CREATIVE HARBOR


Welcome to our blog where we view life through the eyes of an artist's soul and explore what creativity can do for one's inner spirit.


Today we are having our own blog hop ~ MAGICAL MONDAY and are linked to MACRO MONDAY and CREATIVE EVERYDAY.





Join us with your Magical creation. It could be a photo, painting, sketch, poem, craft ~ whatever one creates is magical because it begins within the inner spirit and is birthed by you and becomes 'something' special from 'nothingness'. What are you creating? What have you created? Shine your 'light' with us today and join the fun of sharing and viewing wonderful creativity of the spirit. Link is below where it reads 'you are next' ~ enter. Thanks.

The above photo is for Macro Monday and Magical Monday. As I viewed the photography I could see all the 'magic of the world' in that one flower. Look closely and be amazed at 'Mother Nature's' beautiful, magical work. See the magic in the day.



Hugs and namaste,

SUNDAY SKETCHES and POST CARDS from PARADISE



Brush Painting






A CREATIVE HARBOR



Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of the artist's soul and explore what creativity can do to enhance the  inner spirit. Do come back and visit often. We love to have company and get to you know better.

The above sketch is another Asian brush painting done in my sketch book with mostly black ink and a bit of grey. Hope you like it. It is fun to do; also I need to be very centered and focused to do these and allow my 'chi' to do the painting.


The photo below is from a trip to Hawaii and it is truly a visual paradise. I visited several islands and my favorite was Kona.


Today we are linked with

HAIKU



I.

is fate determined

or is it self directed

let it be your choice.


II


cast your fate to the

wind, as the song claims to us

dancing with the angels.


III.


destiny lingers

over the soul guiding gently

be who you are now.
