HuMP DaY Haiku - Mina's Art


Hanging with the kids
Minor guise while parents gone
Comes with it's rewards

Lucky to hang with my great niece (7 1/2)  and nephew (1 1/2) Monday night while Mom and Dad were at a work dinner. We had a pizza dinner, a walk around the block and were rewarded with delightful smiles and the art Mina drew based on a picture in Carla Sonheims "Drawing Lab for Mixed Media Artists". We both love that book. I left my wacky flowers with her.

Mina's art was created by a pencil drawing outlined in black marker, and colored in with oil pastels and colored pencil. Aren't I lucky to own it?

I have found that creating a haiku (non rhyming poem with 5 - 7 - 5 syllables per line) feeds my soul. I especially like creating them to go with my photos and art.

Oops sorry. I haven't posted yet I don't know why I signed in. Awesome Haiku Helen and how wonderful that you had some quality time. I'm in pain right now. I fell down 3 stairs and landed on my arthritic knees and then the rose bushes scratched me all up and then for the final fall, the side of my hip hit the edge of the last step. That hurt. Nothing broken though but it did make me cry. Take care. Thanks.
