My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

A Haiku Encore: Shades of Blue



I am temporarily using a computer that’s a bit of a dinosaur with limited photo capabilities. A friend gave me this one to use as a replacement for now, after my trusty Dell finally went kaput!  I have a brand new laptop on order, but it won’t be here for a couple of weeks at least.

In the meantime, I am working on other projects including my cookbook sale (see sidebar) and my newspaper recipe/green tip column (going great!) and getting back to some sewing too. I am also visiting my archives for inspiration.

This haiku and photo keeps coming to mind lately. It still makes me smile. Hope you enjoy it (again?) too.

Here’s the link with comments to the original post.

Author: Geraldine

I am a freelance writer, poet, artisan, avid book/product reviewer and award-winning cookbook author. I recently published the second volume of my new vegetarian cookbook series: The Groovy Green Kitchen (Volume 2): Simply, Super, Supper Soups and my inspirational, pro-active and fun book/eBook, all about aging well: Laughing AT the Grim Reaper! Gems of Wisdom for Aging Well. I am also the author of: The Groovy Green Kitchen (Volume 1): Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker. Third Chapter, Second Chance (a mid-life romance). Not Just for Vegetarians: Delicious Homestyle Cooking, the Meatless Way and the poetry collections: Haiku Reflections: The Four Seasons (Volumes I, II and III) and My Poetic Path. These titles are available at all the Amazon sites. When I'm not writing or creating new recipes, I love to knit and crochet; usually with some "help" from feline friend, the yarn-loving Mr. Cheddar! 🐱 With Blogger, I also host my new author's site: Geraldine Helen Hartman and my product review blog: My Real Life Reviews. I hope you will visit often and enjoy all of my sites.😂 Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing You a Happy Week and Namaste!
