On the Horizon – A Haiku

The turbulent times haven’t come to an end. If anything, they’ve only grown in both size and numbers. I haven’t written about it all as much as I’d like, or, perhaps, should. Whenever try, I always end up lost for

Warning – A Cautionary Writing Haiku

Yes, I’m aware. The off-and-on weekly haiku has become a bit of a pattern, these last few weeks. Be assured I’m looking to change that back to be solely ‘on’ as I get my latest work assignment, which has taken

Springing Forth – A Haiku

It’s not just the sunshine, finding herons for my grandmother, and the increasing amount of sense in people outside that make my walks more enjoyable as of late. Nearly every day, I find new animals accompanying the family they’ve just

Sunrise – A Haiku

A welcome change, these past few days! After the grey, dreary drag that marked the past few pandemic-filled weeks, suddenly, the sun came out in full force. Suddenly, the mood shifted. The stress didn’t instantly evaporate, but it ebbed further

Lucky Bird – A Haiku

Apologies once more for the lack of The Artist’s Tale last Friday. Be assured I’m working on rectifying that with a double feature! The stanza that was supposed to be posted last week is already finished and will be accompanied
