Art, Poetry and Photography Weekend

artmusedog for Camera Critters ^_^



Loved how the light was reflecting on the orchids ~ for Weekly Top Shot






A float just waiting for 'High Tide' ~ for Weekend Reflections




A Sliver of the Moon for Sky Watch Friday 






Another playful water color and ink for Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches



Haiku for Carpe Diem Haiku, Haiku My Heart and Haiku Friday


If you got this far and are still reading, my creative energy has been going more into photography at the moment and setting up for the 'grand opening' of my Photography Gallery. I am still writing haiku and doing simple watercolor and ink paintings not to mention the very ordinary but very 'sacred' too, doing laundry, paying bills and on and on. 


We are sharing with these creative bloggers:


Wishing you the best in each day. xxooo


Your posted comments delight us in every way.
