I Don’t Know

And now I climbed clouds
I stole the moon because of you
Oh I am nowhere now

Haiku 5.7.5
Inspired by the words of the song “Harlem River” by ©Kevin Morby

This is my second Haiku of the 2019 inspired by one of my favorite song lyrics. Last week I posted my first one title “Dark” Inspired by a song of The Cure. I started this “Favorite SongHaiku Series”  inspired by my friend at  Cyranny’s Cove!  and I have seen others getting inspired to do this as my dear  friend Syl  he posted his beautiful Haiku “When The Wind Blows”  inspired  by one of his favorite songs. I like to do this very much and thank everyone that join in!  Today I was inspired to write a second Haiku by one of my favorite songs “Harlem River” by Kevin Morby l love the sound of this song and especially this specific version of 9 minutes long I love the long instrumental part in the final of the song. I often listen this song on repeat while painting! I am sure you will enjoy the song and if you are brave enough try to write your Haiku pick your favorite song!

Try to write your Haiku from your favorite song it’s fun, a great practice and very challenging…
How to do it?  Go through the lyrics and use the words that more speaks to you to create your Haiku be careful to keep the words in a way that combined in your Haiku will remain the song! Yes I know isn’t easy but you would be surprised!

I am thinking to make this as a weekly or monthly Challenge where we can all post a link to our song’s inspired Haiku!
What do you think will you be interested to participate?
Let me know and I will think how to create the event here on my Blog! Any suggestion is welcome 😉
Leave me a comment if you like the idea  so that I know I wont be alone…. ❤

Thank You!

Dark

There is a dark Forest
Run into the trees following my eyes
I hear a girl voice…

Haiku 5.7.5
Inspired by the words of the song “A Forest” Written by ©Robert Smith -THE CURE

 

Hope the New Year found you all well!
Today post is my first Haiku of the 2019 and I have to say that I wrote this Haiku in a whim right after I read the Haiku posted by my dear friend Cyranny, you can read it at her Blog Cyranny’s Cove!  She inspired me to create my Haiku using the words of one of my favorite songs, I also illustrated the Haiku with  one of my older watercolor paintings (Prints available in my Shop!)  I loved to do this and to write my Haiku I actually played a bit with the words and I have changed the sequence from the official lyrics but I was able to keep the sense and meaning of the words in the original song!   Check it out this is the beautiful song “A Forest”  of The Cure…I found a video that has the lyric on screen!

I think this is a great idea if you love music and love to write Haiku it is pretty challenging to create a Haiku from the words of a song…Sure it is a good practice I suggest you to pick your favorite song and try!  What do you think?

Thank You!

Limited Edition

A little girl drawing hearts…and a jewel…

Once upon a time…a beautiful little girl was learning how drawing hearts…

her hearts were so lovely and unique in shape ending with a happy swirl a detail that was giving the hearts a sense of character and uniqueness. This adorable little girl was about 4 years old when she started drawing hearts using pens, pencils, markers and watercolors making beautiful little paintings. She has been drawing her beautiful and recognizable hearts everywhere, in any ways and kinds. Time has passed and until today 7 years later, she still drawing the same adorable hearts. The little girl is grown in a beautiful teen she is 11 almost 12 years old right now, and I am her proud Mom. I always loved her beautiful hearts dedicated to me in her lovely cards year after year. I have been fascinated by her drawings at the point that I wanted to do something special. She  inspired me to create a beautiful pendant and make it into a necklace that I named “Neriah’s Heart”

Neriah's heart5a sketches

Neriah is my daughter name, and this new heart pendant is our new design, something we share together, it has a very special meaning to me. I love how it turned out that I want to share it with the world.
This necklace would be part of my  “Among Nature” Collection  it would be only produced as Custom Order and in Limited Edition for whom is interested, it can be purchased here or on my Etsy Shop.

Neriah's heart1a

This pendant is made out of 925 Sterling Silver wire or there is the option to be made with other metals like Copper or Silver plated copper. The natural gemstones I choose are Rose Quartz, Blue Quartz and Crystals, I like their meanings and powers combined together:

CALMING & HARMONIOUS

Blue Quartz purifies the mental, emotional and physical bodies. It helps calm the mind, allowing expression of the individuals will and assists in reaching out to others. It stimulates intuitive insight and enhances communication and creative expression.

LOVE AND PEACE
Rose Quartz promotes unconditional love, forgiveness, infinite peace and compassion. It creates harmony in relationships and teaches us about the true essence of love. It purifies and opens up the heart allowing us to express our emotions. It reduces stress and tension, allowing us to express love, sensitivity and compassion towards ourselves and others. Rose Quartz brings a deep inner healing, enhancing self love, self trust, self worth and self confidence. It can be used to attract love into your life and maintain happy loving relationships.
