Creative Notes and Vintage Art

Poets and artists create with haiku in so many ways. A few of many posts I looked at today:

city lights‘ by Stella Pierides, who creates “haikufeltings.”

Haiku Exhibit Coming Soon! by Charlotte Digregorio

And as you know I also enjoy the vintage images and education notes at Reusable Art. The images may inspire new work. There are many categories.

Flowers, Poems, Posts

I took this photo on July 2, 2018. Previous owners planted our peonies years ago. The peonies are just beginning to grow again this year.

In August 2018, I posted a small collection of my haiku:
Haiku For The Seasons.

My post could become a small printed chapbook some day, with a few photos and credits. Perhaps a book to send someone with a card.

I wonder
what today’s poem may be
lilacs in the wind

I have mentioned Charlotte Digregorio’s Writer’s Blog. Charlotte publishes poems by many poets, along with other content.

Please see Charlotte’s recent post from April 27, 2019 at her blog: Exhibit Travels Again: Haiku & Senryu.

Review notes

I have reached January 2018, with my review. WordPress inspired me, with their “Post Milestone” in January of this year. So soon I will complete my review and 1,000 Posts series. Thank you. I have learned a lot through this review. I see how I could revise some old poems, as I also remember the moment and emotions at the time. And I see some growth! Next post will continue with my January 2018 archive. I began this site in April 2012, and the encouragement of many people is reflected and supported here.

I often reprint poems in new ways. For example, I may see over time that poems form a small collection, and one of my photos may also go well with the post.

This was my note from WordPress, in my notifications. I would have missed this achievement otherwise. They are good teachers and editors!

“Congratulations on writing 1000 posts on Haiku Art Site!”
