New Moleskine journal series – Haiku poem theme

Long time no post. Since two major illnesses this year I’ve left London/work and am recovering in a lovely big house in Suffolk (until later in the year when I’ll be enjoying a much needed trip to Mexico). I’ve been sleeping a lot but also the peace of not living in London/working full time/trying to keep up with the fast pace of a big city has given me time to reflect, and gradually the creativity is re-emerging, after years of creative block.

Last week I started a series of altered Moleskine journals illustrating Haiku poems I wrote over the past few years. I found that despite being unable to get out of bed, my mind still needed exercise, so Haiku writing was a good way of condensing a thought or observation into 5/7/5 syllables. To communicate something with restricted syllables gives you the opportunity to delve into your vocabulary for just the right words to convey your message – like a human thesaurus.

Below are my new journals thus far. These are available in my Etsy shop for one month only (until November 5th).

Migranous Drowning

Image

“Stirring from slumber,
when the migranous drowning
slithered out of me.”

Mind Flotsam

Image

“Witness mind flotsam;
as blind, broken sleep-debris
enter night terror.”

Image

Image

Mis-spent Sleep

Image

“With good intentions
and mis-spent sleep nullified;
thousand eyes on me.”
