Also submitted for the OSI prompt: Stillness


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!

  1. Fantastic imagination you have… 🙂
    We can have stillness by the lake but not quietness…
    The haiku is excellent 🙂

  2. I agree, we have to make our own quiet spaces. Very nice, Geraldine.

  3. during the holidays it’s especially hard to find that quiet time but when we do find it… it’s wonderful. hope all is well. have a great day.

  4. Quiet, so difficult to find, so rejuvenating to discover.

  5. Hi Summit, Thank you for your very kind words. Hope to see you on Sunday at OSI, always enjoy your interpretations there.

    Hi Sandy, And thank you Sandy!

    Hi Naquillity, Time out in nature, in the stillness and peace is so rejuvenating. I love it!

    Hi Carrie, It can indeed be hard to find in today’s world but so important. I think noise pollution is very harmful, much more than we are led to believe so far…

    Hugs and Happy Weekend, G 🙂

  6. A state of stillness, calmness, and quietude, surely you have found the perfect spot to relax!! A silent freedom from agitations 🙂

    Great Haiku!!

  7. Well Geraldine.. first, a lovely haiku, this.. stillness makes one conjure up images of a lake.. and that’s what happened with me too.. a poem with a series of haikus was born.. well would love to get your feedback.. I agree ‘quiet’ is so hard to come.. but so beautiful to reach to.. God bless!

  8. Your illustration matches your words so well.
