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.

Haiku Photos – 2

Forsythia petals on old leaves, and the light – May 2015

This is one of my first haiku photos – seeing new beauty in the yard.

Wildflowers by the driveway – May 2015

Lake Michigan – June 2015

I enjoy creating new arrangements as flower bouquets fade.

Many of my photos and posts were inspired by The Daily Post prompts and challenges. You can view The Daily Post Photo Challenges Archive.

The Daily Post editors are excellent: “All the tools you need to jump-start a new blog, or to revive an existing one.”

Haiku Photos

As I read and view my archives for my 1,000 Posts Review, I remember favorite photos. When I began taking some photos again, I realized that poetry helps me see the photos. I would look around the yard, or create a bouquet, and see the photos already there – waiting for someone with a camera. I call them Haiku Photos.

And the images can be expressed in many ways, many art forms. A simple note of encouragement is art too, for example.

Shadows of forsythia on the cedar wood garage – June 2015

Roses from the yard – July 2015

where once
I mourned
irises

Photo is from the yard in July 2015.

I love how the daylilies grow, bloom, and accept change – to begin again the next year. This photo is from August 2015.

The seasons change, and I love observing nature. This photo is from October 1, 2015. The light through the days and years is a constant source of inspiration.
