Poetry, notes of love and friendship. 

The Haiku

Originally, the haiku form was restricted in subject matter to an objective description of nature suggestive of one of the seasons, evoking a definite, though unstated, emotional response. Though the rigidity of the poetic form has loosened overtime, I find the basis of the Haiku, in its brevity, in its simple rulemaking, and its nod to emotive nature, a beautiful complement to the freedom of watercolor. Its delicate simplicity is everything counter to today's immediacy, overindulgence, and endless choice.  It breaths notes of joy, awe, humor, love, and gratitude


Crane, dancer of lure

Reflections of plenty -

Mirror to our souls.


Where land and sea fold, 

stories bind,

old and new,

place of renewed beginning.
