A first attempt at this art form.

flight of the eagle
stepping into the world of dreams –
a silent cry

lifts despondent traveller

airborne, insight deepens

    With the horrible conditions on most airlines these days, being airborne makes me despondent. I’m happiest when I reach my destination! 😉

  2. Wonderful… really great to see you here


  3. Welcome at Carpe Diem Petra … I like the way how you have completed the Tan Renga which was started by me. By the way I am your host at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.


    • Kristjaan, I’ve had Carpe Diem bookmarked for a while but haven’t had the courage to join. Yesterday, I just closed my eyes and jumped in. I think I was supposed to have indicated within the text your name to your haiku and which bit was mine. I did tag your name though. I’ll be more clear with the next one. Thanks for hosting this. It is a wonderful way to exercise a newfound skill and get the feedback. It’s difficult working in a vacuum.

Artist Statement or rationale or why do I do what I do



I make art, I read a lot and I'm now trying to write as well. Otherwise I belong to a cat by the name of Charlie that drives me nuts sometimes and other times makes me melt with love for her.
