• Empty

Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections, children tend to be sticky. ~Fran Lebowitz
A couple toddlers
Scattered Lego Blocks on floor
Bare feet, enough said

A cup of coffee
My solace from the terrors
Until they want sips

Where is your Mommy?
No, really. She should be here.
Don't giggle at me.

What's that smell? Who pooped?!!
Ok, you're cute again, sigh.
Wipes off sticky kiss

Finally Mommy's here
She smells of Calgon, she beams
I foresee murder

Held up in traffic?
You don't say. Calgon exhaust?
Wow. Your nails look nice.

Did them in the car?
In traffic? You don't say. Pfft.
A French Manicure??!!

Conspiracy looms
I've been taken for a ride
But revenge is mine

They head out the door
I'm sorry, they wouldn't nap.
Her face was priceless

I close the door. AH!
The debris can wait. Listen.
The sound of empty

• Enough

Throbbing thoughts
Mind ache does not go away
Change is imminent

Being formed anew
Frequencies resurrection
Aligning with right

Material things
Lose their hold and importance
Within is enough

I *heart* writing haiku lol
For Haiku Heights: Resurrection

The mandala was a happy accident. I think this is my favorite thus far.

• A Flower's Prayer

Abstain from touching
Sweet flower's dewy halo
Nature's morning prayer

Digital manipulation of a fractal. I loved the way this turned out.

abstain, halo, prayer

• First Postiing :)

I have been in a creative funk as of late. Haven't wanted to fractal, write, anything. Just blah. A few days before school started, the kids wanted some coloring pages, and I encountered a page on the web to print off mandalas. I have literally been hooked, and indeed there is something quite meditative and relaxing about coloring them. I've drawn them, taken up some zentangling and zendalas...I suck at drawing so I won't post them lol. And wouldn't you know it, the inspiration came back, and I've been playing with making them digitally. Not only that, the writing is creeping back in as well. So, that is what this blog is for, to express whichever creative vein I'm in at the moment. I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you, and Welcome to my Blog :)
