Sweet Saturdays, Haiku Heights, Writing on Wall


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 creativity through two blogs, Sweet Saturdays which promotes all types of creativity. The second blog is Haiku Heights and promotes poetic creativity.Also Writing on the Wall (click on either blog to go there)

Above is a photo of a Grandmother doll created by a Native American Indian that I bought at local Museum. Unfortunately it does not have the creator's name on the card. Look closely and you will see the baby's face is looking up into the Grandmother's face. I thought this was too endearing and sweet not to purchase. Hope you think so too.

Below is a special rock wall at one of our favorite beaches for Writing on the Wall.

Rock Wall with Ice and Digitally Altered

Below are my three haiku: (prompt word was 'eager')


eager to live, dance
best enjoy life at its best
moments well spent, joy.


trees, flowers eager
Mother nature is playing
go slow child, enjoy.


hawk eager, yet waits
exact moment to catch prey
lessons learned, see, be.

Hope you are having a wonder filled weekend.

Hugs and namaste,
