It's April. It's Poetry Month!

              Today is my turn! Go HERE!


My Plan: “I’m exploring the aesthetic of wabi-sabi, sometimes described as one that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” in nature. I think walking out in nature this past year gave me the joy needed to keep going, so I’ve gathered photos taken since March 2020 for inspiration in composing haigas, sometimes other forms.”     


  1. Linda, I am delighted with your thoughts this morning. Your creative thinking led you to a new find on your walk. I blew up your photo, looked closely, and thought about how similar the shapes you found to baby birds.

    1. Thanks, Carol. It is fun to imagine how these pods can be something else.

  2. Love your weedy birds and the attention to your surroundings that discovered them!

  3. These really do look like tiny birds! I love this!!!

  4. This is so clever, Linda. Those pods (milkweed?) do indeed look like birds!

  5. Thanks, everyone. It is fun to imagine as I'm out walking! Yes, Catherine, they are milk week pods!


Thanks for visiting!
