Haiku and Photography Tuesday

Nature's Palette

Welcome to our blog where I view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and with my assistant, ArtMuse Dog we explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.

Tuesday's adventure is exploring haiku poets, their poetry and photographers and their altered photos and sharing our creations. We are sharing with:



Toned Photo b/w by carol l mckenna


summer solstice passed
light changing, days grow shorter
nature cycles lead.

like a dream each day
light moves in cycles spinning
moving each moment

pagan belief old
yet new, more real this century
light, energy enlighten


(carol l mckenna)

Hope you enjoy the altered photos and the haiku and will visit the other blogs and support their creative work.

Hugs and namaste,

  3. I like your set on prompt....great reminder of 'nature's cycle'....

  4. The photos are so beautiful and the words inspiring.

  5. Carol...very nice...I personally like the way the black and white causes the shadows of light and darkness to pop...have a good tuesday

  6. Your works are so polished ... Love going through them :-)

  7. Hi Carol, I got the water colour set at Barnes & Noble. I will look for the name of it. It was very inexpensivee, $19.95. The brushes are horrible but I love the cakes and tubes. It also includes sketch pensils and the little metal suitcase it all comes in is amazing.

  8. Photos of the Rose are beautiful.I love both.So delicate!

  9. I love your Summer of Color Baseball Nut entry! Gorgeous painting. My doggy would like your doggy... Thank you, too, for visiting!

  10. Wow! These are pretty.


  11. Good day Carol, a wonderful triplet of haiku on Summer Solstice. Very well done with a deeper spiritual meaning. I love the third one the most. I see myself as a Pagan (or Wiccan), so that one talks really to me.
