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!

#INKTOBER2016 – Day 7: LOST

Day 7 : LOST
When Ylia was sent to the earth she had to travel on board of her space-disc for very long time, passing stars, galaxies and planets. For a moment she had to stop in the middle of the Universe because she felt lost. She had to think what direction was right to take and if she really wanted to land on Earth.

“Her name is ©Ylia and she is the Character born from my pen created for InkTober 2016″

Day 5 : SAD

Sometimes after all the actions of her life Ylia  like to stop everything and go to have some time alone. She find a spot and looking at the beautiful moon in the darkest sky she feel like she can touch the stars letting the sadness of the moment dissolve.

Fragile Ghost

And then we kissed the moon.
Loved us secretly.
I thought I felt ensouled.
I thought I felt alive.

Digital Art – Moon on Water

Moon on Water
Moon on Water

In this Digital Art creation I wanted to emphasize the fascinating beauty of the full moon, positioning the moon in a surreal place, down on the earth, like it is almost possible to touch it. I combined the beautiful natural elements, of a forest with a water stream embracing the glowing moon. I always love to gaze at the moon, it is very inspiring and so fascinating.

I want to thank you so much HeavyCloud for your kindness on letting me use one of your wonderful and precious photos, this full moon. When I saw this stunning photo on your Blog I felt that I wanted to create one of my Digital Art paintings with it. And here it is the moon is the main element in my creation Grazie!

HeavyCloud Original amazing photo
