Chasing High Tide

There is nothing more beautiful than full moon light riding on ocean waves. As fall comes on, and tourists crawl back into their cocoons, the lunar cycle continues with two full moons in the month of October. The Harvest Moon comes on the first and the Blue Moon comes on the thirty-first.

Full Moon surfs high tide

crashing on glistening wet sand

Coconut Palms sway

Tonight at d”Verse Frank Tassone asked us to write our Monday Haibun using the moon as our prompt. Two full moons are happening this year in the month of October. I took two of my paintings and changed them into black and white for effect.

Sawing Logs


I enjoy trying different things like painting old rusty saws. Painting gives them a new and useful life. Painting a saw is sort of like writing a Haiku. You have to condense a lot into a very small space. Most saws I have seen were painted horizontally. I tried painting this one vertically. It really condensed the space available.

Summer’s gone // school starts

Beach memories fading fast

Fire warms // I saw logs
