Practice and Play

Warm up for Index Card a Day Project 

Write 3 Haiku!

 I was inspired by a few 
'practice' flowers 
drawn in my journal this morning 
and here's what happened:

Warm-up #1 day 2

Warming Up

It's time to 'warm up' for the

Index Card A Day Project

I'm doing a jigsaw puzzle!

Here's the puzzle:  550 pieces.
First, you have to turn all of the pieces right side up.
Next, you pull out all of the straight-edged pieces 
that make the 'frame' everything else fits in.

Then you start putting together the edges.
It always seems that there are a few that hide,
but they'll show up - "wagging their tails behind them"!

  Here is Day One.
So far, so good.

Cercis: Beginning Anew

Spring seems the most appropriate time to begin writing my blog once again. 
This is not the first time I have started over, but who's counting?  So here we go!

Cercis Tree, also known as Redbud
Heart shaped leaves unfurl
with the call of the new moon,
heralding the spring.
Their leaves colored red
stretch out to gather sunlight,
fresh and clean and new.
