Tackle It Tuesday and Our World Tuesday

Last year's Fireworks ~

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. 
(more info click above tab Creative Process)

This post is for Tuesday and we are exploring poets and photographers from around the world. The above photo is for a haiku prompt (fireworks). Haiku is below.


harbor fireworks, wow.
lighting up the darkest sky
mirroring light back.

celebration time
birth of America's land
fireworks burst forth, shine.

noise, show time fire works,
leave it to professionals,
safety first, trusting.

 The photo below is of the canal that is nearby. Cape Ann is actually an island connected by two bridges. The bridge I took this photo from is the first bridge the town had and is a regular draw bridge. We are sharing today with:
