Look Up

Look up. Breathe. Release.
Put down the device and go
Outside. Breathe. Simple.

Wednesday, November 26, 2014. Inspired by the long weekend, I created what the sky might look like with eyes strained from squinting for too long at a mobile device. I then wrote the haiku. It’s late, and I am really tired. Goodnight and peace be with you. (I doodled using Sketchbook Mobile on my Kindle Fire HD.)

Monday Moon

She waxes crescent
To capture your gaze tonight
A silver sliver

Monday, November 24, 2014. So exhausted after a busy start to the work week, let me wax poetic tonight. This is my nod to the end of Monday. I’m so glad to see it pass. I created this image using OmniSketch on my iPad. This moon pase will see a full moon some call a “Frosty Moon”. See Stardate

Who What When Where Why

Daylight has been saved
From what we may never know
Who cares, it’s over

Sunday, November 2, 2014. Inspired by our seeming obsession to schedule our lives, I chose to celebrate the end of Daylight Savings Time. I wrote the haiku, Who What When Where Why before created the image Who When Who using Art Rage 4 software. For the image, I oversimplified the dawn and adjusted the resolution to be lower than my usual settings, because I wanted a crass yet murky visual.

Saturday, November 1, 2014. Here is my first post as part of the National Blog Posting Month challenge. For me, it will be a challenge to post every day of the month. Fingers-crossed, folks. Inspired by Halloween and the turning of the seasons, I created the image of the witch’s familiar using Art Rage 4 software. Thinking of the day after Halloween as All Saints Day, I then wrote the corresponding haiku, Familiar Meow.

Grass Escape

Political tides
Ruffle whispers of prospect
Lo sea of decay

Saturday, September 27, 2014. This morning I doodled this scape while listening to “Become Ocean” a new orchestral piece by John Luther Adams. Good listen at http://www.npr.org/2014/09/21/348962229/first-listen-john-luther-adams-become-ocean. I created the image using Art Rage 4. I then wrote the haiku as an ode to the current campaign season. ©2014 Stephanie Abbott. All rights reserved.

Shore Sighted

My mind in seaside.

Windward ventures seen
Bearings reset, she tacks home
Swollen eyes salted

Sunday, August 18, 2013. I created this picture using ArtRage 4. The haiku is simply a blink in my mind’s eye. ©2013 Stephanie Abbott. All rights reserved.
