Can I Write Haiku or Can I Write Haiku? Can You?
I don't believe it! I entered Diahn Ott's giveaway at Art by Diahn. She was giving away two of her beautiful paintings - one of a snowy egret and the other of a sparrow (above). The tricky part about the sparrow painting was that you had to write a Haiku. Diahn even provided a how-to lesson. Her (discriminating and obviously very artistic and talented) boys chose the winner. And I won!! Thank you Diahn - it was fun - and thank you Derek and Joshua! (They have a blog too here.) But they must be careful - they are stroking my writer's ego.
Anyway, my Haiku was about the Snowy Egret. You can see a stunning photo of a snowy egret here. The Haiku:
Royal stroll, alone, Snowy steps of sun on sand, Crown of white tendrils.
Swerving along the artistic road with every sight a potential target. * * * If you'd like to contact me about any of the art that you see - about purchases, commissions or just to say hello - feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from you!
