Photography, haiku, watery,wordless Wednesday

~ for 52 Photo Projects ~ 'A glimpse of me' ~

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

Today we are exploring photography, haiku poetry, (please note for the month of April Haiku Heights has its own page ~ click the tab above to comment) and also several sites that are Wordless Wednesdays. Silence is always golden when appropriate and photography and haiku speak to the soul as well.  Thus, we are linked to 52 Photos Project (prompt was glimpse of self). I had to be creative about this prompt as I rarely like photos of myself. The above photo is the result of my exploring options for this 'prompt'. The other sites we are linked to are Haiku Sensational ~  Nature Footstep  (photo below), and the following are all Wordless Wednesday sites: Aquariann's ~  In Him We Live and Dave's Life. Click on any of the pink links to visit these wonderful photographers and poets.

Haiku Sensational
(prompt was 'freestyle' my choice)


doubt yourself, trouble
trust within, let ego play
live your real dreams.

sparrow hawk so high
blessing me with your presence
posing a message.

she bird left the nest
deserted wee babes lonely
food arrived babes loved.
(carol l mckenna)

Light Reflecting ( for Nature Step)

We hope you have enjoyed the haiku and photography and will have a wonderful and creative day.

Hugs and namaste,

Don't forget we have our very own blog hop, Magical Monday Meme which includes anything from photography, painting, family, work ~ anything you might find being creative and magical in your day, week or month. Magic is always there, look for it. Enjoy ^_^

QUOTE FOR THE DAY: 'The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest. (Thomas Moore)


  1. I like the half photo of you--LOL! And that's a beautiful shot of the sun coming through the clouds. Love to watch hawks. And the quote--part of living mindfully is to be very aware of all the little things you do all day long and do them lovingly. :) Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  2. Doubts play on our minds, very likely most times! Inspirations bless us to overcome and what better than to the home. Well said, Carol! Great haiku!
