“Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks.” Simonides (6th-5th century, B.C)
Uplifted, a Haiku Poem by Karen Hines
Jewels in the sky-
Haiku (俳句 high-koo) are short poems that use sensory language to capture a feeling or image. They are often inspired by an element of nature, a moment of beauty or a poignant experience. Haiku poetry was originally developed by Japanese poets, and the form was adapted to English and other languages by poets in other countries.
A poet creates art with pen and words, an artist creates poetry with brush and paints.
