stopping to sniff
the falling snow
I love reading Jama Rattigan’s gorgeous blog Alphabet Soup. She recommends wonderful books, cooks delicious (looking) foods, and takes beautiful pictures that generally include some very cute bears. I also love following Jama on Facebook because she posts lovely pictures that brighten my day. Often they are from children’s books, but not always. In December Jama posted this painting by Ray Heus. I loved it at first sight. I took a screen shot and saved it to my computer desktop so I could look at it from time to time. Last week I wrote this haiku inspired by it.
Happy Poetry Friday! Kay McGriff has the roundup today.
Correction: When I originally posted, I misattributed the work of art. I now understand the print was made by Ray Heus, who was influenced by Kawase Hasui. I apologize for the error.
