Haiku Reflections: Beach Dreams


I saw this beautiful shell photo over at Sandy Carlson’s blog a while back.

It made me think about the upcoming summer and how the beach is one of the best places to enjoy it.

Thanks Sandy, for the inspiring photo and for allowing me to use it here.

The haiku poem above is one of 120 I am including in my haiku book; that I am currently working on. Celebrating the wonder of the four seasons.

Happy Weekend and Happy Beach Dreams too! ūüôā

PS: Thanks to everyone who sent along their best/healing wishes, since my eye injury last Friday. Most appreciated. My eye is almost back to normal now. It was a frightening experience, I blogged about it over at Happy Break.


A Tanka Moment: Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams


I had a mini trip down memory lane a couple of weeks ago, when I gazed up through the leaves of this beautiful tree.

The brilliant green and warm sunlight streaming through the branches, brought some very happy thoughts to mind. We spent many hours as kids looking up through the trees, day-dreaming and making wishes on stars at the end of the day.

I never forgot the name of this movie either: Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams starring the lovely and talented¬†Joanne Woodward, from the 1970’s.¬†¬†


Here’s to all your summer wishes and winter dreams, coming true! ūüôā


Haiku Reflections: Summer Wishes

Also submitted for the OSI May 24th prompt: Dropped

PS: I am working on a number of haiku poems at present, some to be a part of my haiku calendar submission.

I am also doing some research re: haiku guidelines. The more I read, the more questions I seem to have! If any of you know of  a haiku site(s)  that you can personally recommend, please let me know. The amount of information online about haiku/haiga poetry is staggering! 

I don’t know if I am adhering to all the¬†“rules” so far but I am trying to do my best. Let me know what you think. Your feedback¬†is always appreciated.¬†¬† ūüôā
