Haiga- rifted

rifted night the cosmic call of the screech owl

Posted in Free haiga...the ku done in response to a nahairimo prompt: "cosmic".

August NaHaiWriMo

My participation in Nahaiwrimo for the month of July as well as the past few months has been only sporadic, due to many extraneous reasons and I was only beginning to wonder about my plans for August, when i came upon this announcement : 31 different prompters for the month of August.
I was hooked immediately. And i think, so would be you if you read this.

Though i am doubtful how far i'd be able to keep to my commitment of writing a haiku throughout this month, I sure am going to give it a try.Not only it gives me an opportunity to rejuvenate my flagging creativity, but it is also going to be exciting to guess each day who is going to be the next prompter! We are sure to have Cara Holman one of these days! Is Melissa Allen going to be there too? I hope she is! Haiku Elvis (Carlos Colon)? And who else , apart from the past prompters?

Kudos to Michael Dylan Welch for coming up with new ideas which keeps this site so lively and buzzing all the time!

So don't just stand on the sidelines...join me on NaHaiWriMo starting tomorrow!

Haiga - Repetition

Taking a break from Things with Wings today. Instead here is a haiga I did on NaHaiWriMo yesterday on June 8th, for the prompt "repetition". The prompter this month is Kathabela Wilson.

Doodle ku 23 - Things with Wings

One of my favorites again!

Imagine, imagine! What's awaiting me inside that beautiful jewelry box? Aubrie's doodles have that inexplicable quality that could really make the imagination soar!
The ku came effortlessly.

Doodle ku 15 - Things with Wings

I absolutely adored this doodle. It spoke to me of spring and dew-laden mornings. The ku followed naturally.

the cold, cold nights...
