My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

Holiday Haiku!


christmas ornament

Christmas lights twinkle.

The Skater’s Waltz. A Swan Dive.

Snow softly falling.


Christmas Eve, midnight.

The choir singing far above.

Soon, gifts and giggles!


A new year begins.

Fresh palette, possibilities.

Raise a glass of cheer!

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.πŸ˜‚ Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing You a Happy Week and Namaste!

    Hi Kaya, Wow, what a nice comment, thanks so much.

    I’m so glad you enjoy my haiku poems. I love writing haiku.

    As for setting a mood, I work at that too. I like to visit blogs that make me feel restful, calm, inspired…I work at that at all my blogs too. So glad we found each other’s blogs recently. I love your work too!

    Hi Ron, Thanks for all your lovely comments, they always make my day.

    Hi Joe, I try…thanks dear!

    Hi Val, Delightful, love that. Thanks Val. πŸ™‚

    Hi Lorraine, Yes, you already have this haiku book. You have the first one in print and this second one on your kindle.

    And YES, anyone can leave reviews at Amazon, even if they didn’t purchase a particular book etc, as long as they’ve been a buyer there at some time and have an account. That’s one of the main reasons that authors have free promos, to get exposure for their work and hopefully more reviews. πŸ™‚

    Happy Week to All, G
