This year I will not be participating in the CQGB journal quilts because I needed a new challenge. I found this through Carole. She started a new group/blog for haiku's. Haiku's are a form of Japanese poetry based on 5-7-5 syllabes. The haiku will be the inspiration for a fiber or mixed media art work. The size of these will be around journal size - at least for the first year.
I admit my experience of writing poetry is limited to Sinterklaas poetry (Dutch version of Santa Clause). The first theme is 'beginnings' and this is my first haiku:
A first day at school
Numbers, letters, they call you
No more time to play?
In my mind I already see the fiber translation of this. Hopefully I have time the coming days to create it.
