This is Friday's post which means connecting with two wonderful blogs and all their creativity. They are artist's who paint in a variety of ways using various mediums and fill your spirit with joy and love. They are poets who create haiku which originated in Japan. These poets are enchanting with their word play and guaranteed to enhance your spirit. (to go to their blogs click on the highlighted links to the upper left)


The very first photo above is another Asian type brush painting that I did this week and is for Paint Party Friday. My haiku for Haiku My Heart is below.


haiku


I.


her day is special
long time around this planet
no need to give numbers.


II.


wishing love today
time special honoring you
shower rose petals.


III.


day of birth today
full circle, journeying round
being, living today.






Hugs and namaste,
