“Haiku Walk”–Archived at her blog:

“When I was growing up in Japan, keeping eyes and ears open for interesting objects or events along the way was a game.” Read more here:

Archived at my blog:

Haiku poetry was shared by Maureen Wartksi, Robyn Hood Black, and Joy Acey.  Here is a haiku by Maureen:

Frostbitten flowers

Curl their petals inward

Guarding memories.

by Maureen Wartski

Enjoy more about haiku form and samples by three poets.

In another achieved blog post, Maureen shares her beautiful quilt art and a comment about her work:  “Personally, I like my wall-hangings and quilts to tell a story.”  Maureen achieved that and much more.

This lovely quilt art was a gift from Maureen when my husband was very ill.  It hung over my bed during his sickness and today it’s displayed in my dining room for the enjoyment of all who enter.  Maureen also mailed me original haikus and sometimes handmade cards each week during his extended illness.  I kept them all!  She richly blessed my life.

I miss Maureen and remember her fondly, especially when I read or hear haikus!

What “H” words come to mind for you? I hope you’ll share why they’re special to you.

Thank you for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.”  Come again soon and bring a friend. Please leave a comment.  Remember that children 13 and under need an adult to comment for them.  For more fun, sign up to follow my blog.  Thank you!
