Reading Palm-of-the-Hand stories at the beach; a car-crash in the parking-lot.

The Urge occurs! I tip-toe to (someone's) flip flops to trek through the back yard, to make my exchange with nature. The rain has rent the grass into islands, caught between seas; seems sandals wasn't a wise choice, as I step and slosh and                              SLIP... (nearly!) to the barn. There my eye moves from yellow liquid to yellow lark; "I don't know really what a lark is," I say to myself, "but I can't recall a canary quite like this one." Feet wet, walking bac

I haven't been very active but that won't be a continuing trend. With access to PS again, my files from my other computer (that went capoot last October), and coming out of a slump, I hope to update more and comment and contribute more. For example, to %the-haiku-club (https://www.deviantart.com/the-haiku-club). Woo! I really want this to be a good year for me- we'll see!

Hey guys, who's gonna do the NaNoWriMo? I signed up: http://www.nanowrimo.org/eng/user/516571 We can be writing buddies? (I'm not really sure how this works...) Also, I will take commissions, if you'd like one. Poetry, drawing, collage, painting- you name it. I'll make Haiku for a dollar, a black and white drawing for 5 bucks, and we could discuss price for other projects!

Clicked on random deviant and it sent me to you! Just passing by and flipping through other deviant's work, looking for inspiration. I write primarily non-melodramatic free verse poetry, something that I hope even people who aren't lit fanatics can enjoy. Just in case you're interested :)
Hi, Nathaniel - it's been a while, I hope your holiday/New Year's were all you hoped for.

Meantime, I wish to thank you for fav'ing my haiga:
"haiku of meeting"- I'm so glad you like it. ^.^
