Favorite Things, This and That, haiku Thursday

Some Creating Tools

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

Like blog hops? Magical Monday Meme here every Monday.

Today we are exploring two creative bloggers similar yet different. They are both creative with how and what they create. They are not classic artists yet their creativity and positive spirits shine through in their photography and writings. Finally, I am including haiku that I have created especially for these two blogs, My Favorite Things Thursday and This and That Thursday. (click on link to go there) Hope you all will enjoy the haiku as well as having two blogs to explore.



my favorite things,
dog, camera, paints, pens, paper
send me a letter.


favorite son, child
longing to be, waiting self
all falls into place.


this and that of life
so many people, places here
see, love them deeply.


sand, sea, summertime
this and that, pails, shovels, cups
play time begins here.

Enjoy Thursday and have a magical, wonderful week.

Hugs and namaste,

  1. I love the way 'dog' was the first favorite thing! Your set was upbeat and playful and I loved it....I wanted to sing like Julie Andrews - 'these are a few of my favorite things...

    1. Dog first ~ but of course ~ I know that is the first thing I thought about with that blog was Julie Andrews ~
      'like minds' ~ ^_^ ~ thanks, namaste, ^_^

  2. Nice photo and poem to go with it!

  3. Love the sweet face of your little yorkie! I have 3 of these charming little dogs ( oh, and a bit challlenging too). Have you ever seen a haiku game. Comes with lots of little dice with words and "starter phrases". Has never helped me become a famous haiku writer, but fun anyway... Have a wonderful day!

    1. No have not seen the haiku game ~ will check it out ~ enjoy the weekend ~ ^_^

  4. Love your haiku and your someone did a wonderful job grooming your Yorki.

    1. Thanks, Kenya ~ she does have an excellent groomer ~ and glad you liked the haiku ~ Your book, Christopher Chronicles sounds like a winner ~ thanks, namaste, ^_^

    Quote for reflection!
