Welcome to Friday Art, a new feature on Haiku Journey. I’ll be sharing some of my artwork, sketches, watercolors, collage, etc. every Friday. This collage, “In Cherry Blossom Time” may look familiar since it’s the basis for the header image here on Haiku Journey. It honors some time I spent in Japan while serving in Navy.

Thumbstone Happiness

Walking the beach. Watch the surf sweeping sand, look for the wet sparkle. Too small, wrong shape, too thick, fully round, too heavy. Ahh ha, white Quartz, polished in the depths, cradles in my hand, already my thumb fits, slides, caresses the slight depression. Caressing the slight depression, caressing the slight depression, ignites the slight smile of happiness.

In the fog

It is so unforgiving this
 Fog in which we travel steadily
  Following the bow in and out
   Of swirling vapor drapes, warily
    Groping through the harbor
     Like a blind bat weaving recklessly
      In flight zigging zagging
       Flying without echoes readily
        To guide it on its course our
         Senses overruled by compass verity
          ! Our mooring dead ahead.
