Haiku Friday: Duet

I'm running dry on inspiration, so I'm doing what writers have been doing for centuries, stealing it. My husband is an artist, so I'm haikuing (is that a word?) about a few of my favorites pieces.


Has he lost his mind?
It floats above him in clouds,
he grabs on to air.




She sits, hands folded.
She is painted in brave bold strokes
but lives in silence.





It is someone else.
I wish I could say it was
me in this drawing.

Have a fun weekend and be safe to those of you in the bad weather!
