My Mom’s Haiku Project

I love a Haiku
My mother is an artist
Haikus in winter

My mom has started a haiku project. She takes haikus that friends write and turns them into a collage.

Following is a haiku I wrote after my mom sent me an email asking me for one.

Yes, I was in Charlotte, North Carolina at the time. I’m on the board of AvidXchange and this likely was written the night before the one board meeting a year I attend in person. Charlotte is a nice place, so this is less about Charlotte and more about me.

Here’s the painting that resulted.

I love it and asked my mom if I could buy it. She said no because she wants to exhibit them as a collection first.

She did create another print for me of this, so I’ll get it, but I really want the original in all its glory. So, if you are a curator at a museum and you want to do me a favor, drop me a note so I can get these exhibited so that I can then buy them. And yes, I’ll underwrite the exhibit, unless my mom won’t let me.

If you’ve got a haiku that you want turned into a collage, leave it in the comments or email it to me.
