which the haiku was written along with music composed to go
along with the haiga and Japanese translations of the haiku
(It is very beautiful when you see it all together.)

Interesting.. early frost and aging... synonymous in my line of work. and so many an early frost comes to those who do not care for their garden... I never knew much about Haiku, mysterious to me... but this works for me on many levels of interpretation... and it falls into an area of my deep knowledge, so i dont feel left out of it reading... i like this short impacting style... kinda makes you just deal with a subject matter very matter of fact... nice Joyce!

This is wonderful. It speaks of aging, the stiffness of the season of winter and always the ultimate renewal. We must just be patient. It is good to see you.

If I had more time and enery, I'd definitely be around more. I miss you, Blue.
This made me smile. I've got those creaky knees, too. (Oh, and some frost) Especially, I thought of the elderly fellow down the road who tends his garden on a walker.

Thank you for your very kind words. Good luck with your book!
I love the brevity of this form, and depicting it with illustration gives a striking impact. It's truly beautiful...thank you for such a lovely offering, Joyce.

You've given me the incentive to check it out on-line. ; )
