It's April. It's Poetry Month!

My Plan: “I’m going to explore 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.”

lockdown blessings –

  1. Throughout the pandemic, nature's rhythms sustained me. It gave me a feeling of no matter what, this will continue. Blossoms are always a blessing but especially when they come out of darkness.

  2. Oh yes, so lovely!! Nature sustains us no matter what.

  3. The natural things being predictable was so comforting through all of the turmoil of the past couple of years.

  4. Thank you, Julieanne, Jama, & Ruth. You know that I agree wholeheartedly!

  5. You are so right! It's like the spring flower procession is the only thing we can count on to be the same these days. Hmmm.....

  6. Color! So lovely! And so hopeful when the world has seemed so gray for so long!!

  7. Ah, the first peeks of color in spring. Like a delicious appetizer. Giving us hope, right?
