Prompts and (my) Responses:

A week of adverbs.

1- NOW – 2-1-2015

daylight
on the edge of the bed
I listen to rain

2- NOISILY – 2-2-2015

can string secure
quickly driving down the road
the wedding couple

3- NERVOUSLY – 2-3-2015

nervously the mother
between fledgling and cat
I hold my breath

4- NAKEDLY – 2-4-2015

nakedly into the pond
the reflected light of the sun
the moon

5- NONSTOP – 2-5-2015

quietly
the nonstop winter moon
between houses

6- NONCHALANTLY – 2-6-2015

nonchalantly
in the stillness of the night
a great golden moon

great golden moon
nonchalantly I watch the cat
sit beside me

7- NEAREST – 2-7-2015

the nearest moon
still too far for me to walk
this morning

NaHaiWriMo and Updates 2-1-2015

©2015 Daylight Rain 1 sml 6x

 

February is NaHaiWriMo.

Michael Dylan Welch began NaHaiWriMo (National Haiku Writing Month)—which is world wide—five years ago. A Daily Writing Prompt is given for the month of February.

You are encouraged to write one (or more) haiku a day for the month of February (or all year long as there are also daily prompts for the entire year) and share them on Facebook.

And, if you’d like the February prompts delivered in comic form, look into the haiku-driven Old Pond Comics by Jessica Tremblay.

Prompts:

1- NOW – 2-1-2015

daylight
on the edge of the bed
I listen to rain

2- NOISILY – 2-2-2015

3- NERVOUSLY – 2-3-2015

4- NAKEDLY – 2-4-2015

Among ongoing and upcoming projects:

Currently I am working with Chrissi Villa on images which are expected to become visible on the Frameless Sky site sometime around or shortly after the end of February for your written submissions in haiku and tanka.

Soon I hope to be working with pace on a book of my postcards for publication through Sunscribe Publishers.

On the wish list: a desire to paint on canvas (again). Good luck on this one Rick.

Haiku ~ Weathergrams

Moving Forward

A little over a year ago (Nov. 2013) Jessica Tremblay posted 8 clever ways to display your haiku on her Old Pond Comics blog. I liked the weathergram idea. It took me a while to figure out how and where I could attempt some weathergrams.

Last October (2014) Jessica again posted more Weathergrams from Seabeck Haiku Gateway 2014, refreshing my weathergram interest.

Now I’ve followed up with my own weathergrams. Earlier this month (the first week of January 2015) I was able to do this on Goose Pond (near Chatham on Cape Cod).

My resources were mostly what I had on hand and carried from Hawai’i; strips I cut from a 25 year old roll of white “butcher” paper and garden twine. Today this Goose Pond area is under snow (the January blizzard of 2015). The photos are of course pre-blizzard. All counted eventually there were twelve weathergrams on this small oak tree above Goose Pond.

Ten weathergrams on a small oak tree.

This is the area where Henry David Thoreau spent time writing.

Some days were quite breezy.

All the days were chilly—mostly just above and below freezing.

At that time I was hoping for a little snow.

Not even a snowflake fell while I was there.

Still, every day was spectacular.

Fun.

Thank you Jessica.
