Haiku Heights

Happy Fish

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

Today is Saturday and we are working at making life simpler here on 'blog land' and in life. My spirit has been strengthened and enhanced by expressing myself through poetry, specifically haiku, and Asian style brush painting complimented with watercolors. So today we are exploring only one blog of creativity. We are linked with Haiku Heights where we find talented haiku poets and share our creations. 

The prompt word for Haiku Heights challenge #146 is 'joy'.


sun casting light haze
ocean glitters diamonds
joy is here today.


lingering heartache
loss daily on life journey
it is, so be it.


fish needs water life
joy found swimming round and round
happy fish swims here.

QUOTE FOR THE DAY: '...The miraculous is so commonplace that we take it for granted. Pause for a moment to contemplate this and feel the breathtaking truth of it all.' (Derek Lin, The Tao of Joy)
