I believe in being prepared for any given situation. It isn't because I'm a pessimistic person; I think it is just good common sense. Hence, I've entitled my blog "Even Nothing is Something."

This covers my butt in any event. On any given day I can feel great exaltation that I have done something grand. I can scribble fiercely when my thoughts are leaping across the meadows of my mind like a happy little colt in the month of May, or my mind and writing can be as dry and arid, as cold and without life, as the Gobi desert - because even Nothing is Something.

I want to thank all of my fellow artists who work through other means and forms and who sell their work on the wonderful artist's site "Etsy," a place to buy and sell all things handmade, along with vintage items and supplies for their craft. They are a great group of people.

Those who have links to their site on my blog represent only a few of those whom I wish to include. Just click on one of those links and join the Etsy community. It is free. They are a great group of artists who have relieved me of my money in the most delightful of ways. If it weren't for their encouragement, I would have never shared my work through this blog.

Thank you my darling friends!

Haiku Poetry With Five Stanzas

Poem 3

The Blue Dawn Flowers
Glories in the Morning Sun;
Climbing their trellis.

Moonflowers open
At dusk to say Good Evening
Till the Daylight comes.

Mother Earth offers
Flora and Fauna Day thru
Night, while birds share too.

Evening Grosbeaks sing
At dawn belying their name.
The Day’s songbird trills.

Nocturnal songsters,
The Whippoorwill shares the night
Beneath the Moon’s beam.

  1. Oh . My . Gosh
    You say so much with so little. The power of your words has to be the size of the images that you elicit from our minds. You have my mind dancing.

    Love it
