Haiku – from a short walk

tending the sunset
a change of wind turns me back –
the moon, full, rising

a bird, a swift, back
from somewhere in Africa
close by me

  2. I love “tending the sunset”. I know that feeling, or at least the feeling the words immediately pointed me toward!

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.
