Happy New Year!

"For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning."

- T.S. Eliot

Love that first quote and the idea of the New Year inking its first clean slate page.

Thank you, Rosemary!
That wildflower by the side of a building had me thinking, this is a pretty tough fellow, growing out of a crack in concrete, and it's flower at the tip looks like a burst of fireworks. Thus the haiga. 😁

Rajani, Thank you!

Yes, I enjoyed drawing that "cartoon". 😄
I happened to pass the building the other day, and the plant was no more. I guess some gardener pulled it out as a weed. 😬🙁

Thank you, Priscilla!

I should be sending in more poetry submissions. 😁
Anyway, I am trying out a major short-story competition. (The word is trying!) The deadline is about 8 months away so there's still plenty of time. 😄
