Haiku Hippodrome July/August 2011

Jackson Wilcox, editor and cartoonist, kindly sent me a copy of HAIKU HIPPODROME. 

HAIKU HIPPODROME is a SILVER WINGS publication. Both publications are poetry print journals, with their own special styles.  They are identified with a California non-profit corporation called POETRY ON WINGS.

I am enjoying the inspiring haiku by many poets, along with the editor’s uplifting illustrations.

  1. I loved your comments about your parents..I learned a great deal from them and my grandmother.
    They taught me to use my imagination and to be creative..I love to use my hands in needlepoint
    cross stitch and collages..i LOVED the Dover Designs..My father was a photographer, so am I
    as well as writer, artist and craftswoman..I have countless collages


    1. Dear Eve Jeanette,

      Thank you for your kind comments and for sharing about all of your art. I have needlepoint from my grandmother, Grace–I feel as though I know her, even though she died before I was born.


  2. designs in nature
    those we create on paper
    are special gifts

    the sea and mist
    the salt in our hair and face
    the taste of romance

    the empty boardwalk
    the lone seagull and lifeguard
    beach covered with bird

    late August
    the gray days are monotony
    the sea and sky meet

    Eve Jeanette Blohm

    the photograph fades
    and the colors blend
    into an abstract piece of art

    covers of books
    book plates
    the designs we create
    are the gifts
    we leave

    Eve Jeanette Blohm
