|Tackle It Tuesday|
Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.
NOTE: MAGICAL MONDAY MEME ~ blog hop for all creative mediums runs until late Thursday.
Tuesday ~ Today we are exploring poetry, more specifically, haiku, which originated in Japan. Basho is one of the noted historical poets who wrote haiku, particularly in the 5-7-5 form. According to Minor, another blogger from Japan, an excellent book you might read about Basho is A HAIKU JOURNEY, Basho's 'Narrow Road to a Far Province'. Having just begun to read it, I am fascinated by his 'journal writings' of his travels and his haiku. Along with that suggestion, a good haiku blog meme, one we are linked to today is Tackle It Tuesday. The word prompt for this is 'frog' and my haiku is below.
laze on lily pad
none other than mister frog
simple pleasures Tao.
divers of the deep
frogmen exploring ocean
another world is found.
garden bug eater
saving nature's wonder growth
come to my garden.
Enjoy Tackle it Tuesday and the wonderful poets of haiku.
Have a magical and delightful week.
Hugs and namaste,

Cute girl! The fishing and the frog haiku go together quite nicely. :)ReplyDelete
Nice haiku set ~ I like that creative twist, the frogmen exploring the deep ~ReplyDelete
Great haiku Carol! Love the last one, maybe I should use frogs for pest control in my garden!ReplyDelete
So special the way you went from a pond frog, to a frog-man, to a land frog.....and the set was so well-written....ReplyDelete
I love the last one too. Very well crafted.ReplyDelete
love the gone fishing drawing, but love the doggy more :)ReplyDelete
I love your work Carol. Your girl is wonderful and I enjoy your Haiku so much. You have introduced to me to something new to enjoy. Although I taught haiku, in a very elementary way, to my students I have a new appreciation and love of it from your work. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! The 3rd haiku is my favorite. :)ReplyDelete
A great haiku set, Carol! And perfect to the prompt!ReplyDelete
Awesome! Nice haiku triplet. I especially love the first one. Nicely done. Thank you for being part of "Tackle It Tuesday".ReplyDelete
