Strokes of golden light, Brushed against a blushing sky, Painting silhouettes. —JanetHaiku #7 Well, I’m very close to the last of my archived images, so it’s a good thing my normal schedule is resuming soon! This was an old sunset photograph from Newport Beach, and I wanted to do something different with it… so there […]
Colors erupting, Branches waltzing in the wind, Welcoming the night. —Janet Haiku #2 Word of the Day Challenge: Waltzing
