I am a fish

Diving in the deep

I panic too late gasping

What about the sharks

Wednesday, April 19, 2017. I recently felt like a flounder–stuck at the bottom and overwhelmed by the heavy seas. Today I realized my fins are not anchors. I am a fish. Tonight, I doodled the image using ArtRage, then I wrote the haiku while watching the reality TV show, “Survivor.” ©2017 Stephanie Abbott. All rights reserved.

Persephone Shines

Persephone shines
Alight she soars for a time

Sunday, April 16, 2017. I created the image “Phyrne Stars” using Artrage and wrote the haiku “Persephone Shines” on my laptop while considering the need for renewal this season.

Lunatic fringe, Man

Crazy orange man. President-to-be-man. Not normal man. Nazi-enabling man. Help us, man.


I wrote this brief post in 60 seconds using oneword™, a website designed to provide the user with a timed writing prompt. While on that site, simply click “go” and one word appears with a text box. My word was “lunatic”. What was yours?

After I wrote the post, I created the image using ArtRage on my tablet. The image does not represent the written word. I could not bring myself to doodle the images that were running through my mind. I’m trying to stay positive. Rather the written word and the post paired together represent my concerns to our current political climate.

Let’s go, #NaBloPoMo.
