  1. One of my favorite haikus!
    My house burned down.
    now I can better see
    the rising moon.--Basho

    It is fun to see it re-done and illustrated.

  5. I like that quote too...it's always possible to find some good in a situation...here, the leaves of summer may be falling and soon gone, but...I will then be able to see the sunrise!

  6. For me the artwork makes the words take on a new life. I love to see your interpretation of words and quotes through your use of color and texture. Nicely done!

  7. This is a vibrant, strong painting. I like it and it does combine well with the words. Has a little more relevance for me as I have a barn.

  9. Yes, one of my favorite haiku as well, by the master. The painting has punch and great power.

  10. I can almost smell the crisp clearness of the night as he's lying there, staring at his new view of the moon. Lovely. And words to live by.

  11. Bonnie, would you please come back to my blog and leave your comment, a different one, if possible. That wasn't a post, that was me playing with photos and checking if that photo of the sky to the east actually appeared visible to naked blogger's eye (well, the eye being naked, not the blogger).
    By recalling the photo into edit, I also erased your comment. Wish I could disappear into the wide blue yonder sometimes!

    I'd be very happy if you made use of my email button, top left hand corner of my home page, particularly if my comment were strip-tearing-off-worthy at any time.

  13. Thank you so much EVERYONE!

    My favorite comment has to be the one from Friko which is unrelated to this post, where Friko, you talk about checking a photograph for whether it would be visible to the naked blogger's eye.
    I think you have come up with a great meme! Let's have an appointed day where we all sit at our computers and blog in the buff. There's your meme title: Blog in the Buff. I'll go first!
    ;)
