Andromeda

andromeda s

I was honored when Freya at Pure Haiku chose me to be the featured writer for the Celestial Bodies theme.  It turned out to be a double blessing, as it gave me something tangible to do creatively when a member of my family became ill.  He is doing well, but I’m sure most people know the drill with cancer–surgery, and then weeks of radiation and chemo, to be followed by testing and more interventions as needed.

I want to thank everyone for their good wishes, and will try to visit your blogs when I can.  Nina and I both hope to be more present in the coming months.

    What a beautiful poem and illustration, Kerfe. So glad to find you back and I send my prayers for the full recovery of your patient. I have found that beauty is really important during difficult times. And creating beauty helps one find passage..

    Beautiful artwork, Kerfe, and the same with the haiku. Thoughts are with you, as you care for your loved one. I hope he does well with the treatments and that he heals quickly.
    Take good care of yourself too! ❤️ Will look forward to seeing you here more often.

    Kind of combo of Hubble type photos and old constellation maps … effective … best wishes to you and yours!
