Too Many Words


5/11/24 Maple Leaf neighborhood

Here are a couple of walk-comics that I had made in early May before I discovered haiku comics. Looking at them now, they seem wordy compared to haiku: Could I have said the same thing with fewer words? The one below might have been a haiku . . . if expressed with a bit more verbal grace.

Funny how discovering one new thing makes me see everything I did before that in a different light.

  1. It is fun to see the irises without color. Nice!!!

  2. Oh, I love the way your irises came out, the blue background a perfect foil for them. And fancy this coincidence - I had an appt to have my hair cut, I have a regular gal that I've been going to for years who knows how to keep my thick and unruly hair in line, and there was a lovely bouquet of irises sitting at the adjacent station. When she was done, she said she hoped this wasn't weird but that she'd been thinking of me this morning, saw the irises in her garden starting to bloom and decided to bring me some. I so love irises and how many beauticians give their clients special gifts like that! And now I have the gift of your sketched irises to add to an already pretty good day. <3

    1. Aww, what a great gift you received! A terrific day, indeed!
