Haiku Heights and Sweet Saturday

My son cooking crepes at Xmas


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 linked with two creative blogs, Haiku Heights and Sweet Saturdays. The above photo is for Sweet Saturdays.

Sean is cooking a crepe recipe that was a traditional Christmas Eve dish that his father cooked. He always made seafood crepes and then strawberry crepes for dessert. Sean respects family traditions, thus the cooking of crepes. They are always delish!

Below are my haiku for Haiku Heights ~ prompt was 'childhood'



wee one, all is new
gazing through newborn eyes here
everything a puzzle.


that first step shaky

balancing on two feet a trick

to learn all your life.


childhood much learning

takes place and then forgotten

somewhat new adulthood.
