Eating violet Spiked globes of thistle, a Defensive dinner
I wrote this haiku tonight to go with this photo of purple artichokes that I brought home in February. I don’t know why Ive waited so long been to write about this pretty picture. A delayed but delightful pairing?
This post is the ninth in what I hope to be a series of 30 posts in honor of NaBloPoMo.
Today, I am reblogging content I created years ago, because I am sick and tired. Seriously, I am not feeling well, and it is getting late. I have to get up early tomorrow for work. And, I doubt my readers will notice the redundancy. I appreciate your understanding.
Pious, French, fighter
Tried for heresy, retried
Charred beauty to saint

Monday, April 17, 2017. Today, I snapped this picture of a painted statue of Saint Joan of Arc that stands in front of the St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Las Vegas, Nevada. Lucky for me, today happens to be National Haiku Poetry Day. Tonight, I wrote this haiku in honor of the anniversary of her beautification (April 18, 1909 at Notre Dame de Paris by Pope Pius X).
