January; A Haiku

Fragile emotions

Brittle like brown grass under

Heavy winter weight


January 1, 2018

Well so far so good. 2017 ended on a nice note. Had a good couple of days before seeing 2017 out with a nice Hanukkah, peaceful Christmas, and a sparkler and fire-work filled New Years Eve.

Onward and upward they always say and I intend to make 2018 better. Emotionally I will try not to sweat the small stuff, de-stress more often (since I know I will get stressed anyway, at least I’ll have some measures in place to take time and de-stress; being proactive I guess), make art, sell art, write, and generally just have a good time. *fingers crossed [hoping for a fantabulous year]

So off we go, taking it one day at a time. Again…


Structure – Photo Challenge



My hand was shaking because I was SO CLOSE to the spider living in this web while I took the photo. Had to hold my breath, I’m lucky anything was in focus haha

I am standing at my kitchen window, unaware of the time passing.

Catching the night moon glimpsed on a ravens wing that was ever so fleeting I’m not entirely sure the celestial orb is still suspended above.

My heart can feel the thundering rumble somewhere in the distance and I know the rain is coming, but it has yet to provide even a fanciful drizzle for my eyes to rest upon.

Stifling an unattractive yawn, I flex my toes that have begun to strain from my stance, and noticing the night get a bit softer at the edges, I open the small window.

Leaning forward,  I strain to hear the wind in the attic of the forrest at the pending coronation of a new day.  The slight breeze catches up to me and rustles the curls of my unruly hair.

Inhaling the fresh, dewy scent of the morning, I close the window and retreat to my bedroom, awaiting the night once again.

Southern Summer – A Tanka

Temperature high

Flowers lose their will to thrive

Under Georgia’s sun

Abundance of energy

Only to lucky houseplants


From the Tanka Prompt Challenge


Unbridled- A Tanka


Seemingly under control

Secretly wanting

Wild heart makes ribcage tremble

Can’t stay, must run, don’t look back


From the Tanka prompt

I Adulted Today

So today I bought homeowners insurance. Not only that, but I bundled it with car insurance as well and got a major discount. 

I sound like a commercial or something, but I’m proud of myself for doing it. Even though afterwards I  took a nap because it was exhausting lol


Focus – Photo Challenge


Avocado, goat gouda, rye toast, all sprinkled with black pepper 🙂
