      Thank you! The haiku is based on a section of the 1st book in my fantasy angels series, The Fall of Lilith. 😉

    I understand. A powerful story. I have been following Lilith since my awakening to female power. It is either psychic or something is in the air. I just finished rewriting my poem & it is about women’s power. Unfortunate for Lilith she was cast out of the Garden. In your fantasy series, it seems from your Haiku she didn’t make out much better.

    Your Haiku and the painting of your young woman is sad. I can feel her dejection. A powerful Haiku. You truly are an imaginative and a very sensitive writer. It shows in all I have read of your creative work. Beautifully written. Perfect image & Haiku together. xox 🙂 ❤

        You are so kind. My words speak the truth and are meant completely. There will be many more. If you don’t realize, but I am sure you must, your generosity, kindness, and talent are who you are. And for me, it is a pleasure to feel the contact I have with you. 😀 ❤ xox

      Hello! That’s great! It wasn’t my intention to bring sensuality to it, well, maybe just a hint, but I’m glad it turned out that way. 😉

    She looks very strong, though. I intrigued by your story of Lilith…:)

      Thank you Doreen! My Thanksgiving was awesome. I hosted it in my house. I made the turkey and cornbread casserole, my mom, sister and niece Natasha made the mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and stuffing. My brother delivered the pies. Everything was delicious and we had a great time as a family. Oh, and we ate outside because the weather was perfect. I set two banquet tables together and we sat around it (pilgrim style). We had fun. 😉 I’m sure your Thanksgiving was fantastic also. Are you going to post about it?
