If we were having coffee, I might recite this haiku…

Wait, before you go
Savor friends and sip of stress
Become family

I created the image shown above for a post a few years ago. SeeWait, Before You Go.”

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.

I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words #6. Day 7 of the Write Tribe Festival of Words #6 and today’s prompt is: Day 7 (11 Aug/Fri) – ‘If we were having coffee…….’

This is the last day of the festival and writing challenge. I may not post for a while, so in the meantime, heed my words…

Wait, before you go, write bravely.

Day Glow Slug

Nightly garden trail
To glisten before sunrise
Day glow slug to fry

I doodled this faux black velvet painting using Omnisketch last night. I wrote the haiku this morning. ©2017 Stephanie Abbott. All rights reserved.

Joan of Arc in Haiku

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).
