52 Photos, Haiku Sensational, Wordless Wednesday and Nature Footstep

Smiling Buddha

Blog Hop every Monday, Magical Monday Meme here.

Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.

(Haiku Heights and those who would like to read more haiku, click on the tab above entitled Haiku Heights 22-30)

Today we are exploring photography, haiku, silence and nature at various blogs. The photo above is for 52 Photos Project with a (word prompt ~ something new we have started). I chose the photo of the smiling Buddha because I just started back again taking formal yoga classes. I have done yoga for many years now. Periodically,though, I find I need the renewal of a class to get me back to more regular yoga and social facilitation always helps.

The haiku below is for Haiku Sensational which occurs every Wednesday of the week. It is a delightful group of talented poets. Much can be discerned from their creative haiku. The word prompt was 'conversation.'

The other blogs are Wordless Wednesdays and Nature Footstep represent to me silence ~ They are Nature Foot Step with Water Wednesday. Wordless are  Aquariann's, In Him We Live, and Dave's Life and 'Out of the Fog' photo is for all of them.

conversation null
leading to the dangling void
never to occur.

one conversation
dazzling with words singing peace
come often to me.

connecting each one
with loving words spreading peace
conversation full.

Out of the Fog

QUOTE FOR THE DAY: ' Let us imagine care of the soul, then, as an application of poetics to everyday life.'
