Poetry Friday–Dream Haiku & Holiday Cards

Happy Poetry Friday!

I have a haiku to share from Margaret Simon’s post this week for This Photo Wants to be a Poem, thanks Margaret for the prompt! You can take a peek at the image by following the link, briefly it was about dreams and travel… I sure can’t pass on anything that has to do with dreams!

hold your moonbeam-dream
close to your heart, keep
your dream-strings tugging…

Hey, the holidays are knocking… And I’m sharing a few Holiday Gift Cards that are available in my online Etsy Shop: Michelle Kogan Fine Art. The one above, Robin Hydrangea & Hawthorn Berries is also available as a Greeting Card and Archival Print.

And for those silvery, soft purple, and lilac snowflakes that have begun to fall stop by her for my Snowflakes Gift Card.

And here for my jolly Snowperson and Birdies Gift Card.

The Poetry Friday Roundup is hosted this week by Catherine Flynn at her blog Reading to the core, be sure to stop by, thanks for hosting Catherine!

And next week I’ll be hosting the Roundup, so see you again soon!

    All beautiful, Michelle! I love the idea of the “dream-strings tugging…”, watching the moon lately as it will soon be full! Your cards are lovely and that video, a heart-warming adventure! Thanks for the special post!
