Back Home, a haiku by Robyn MacKinnon at

Back Home

written by: Robyn MacKinnon



Travelling back home

when my winter cactus blooms

buy a box of cards



Illustration description: A blue sky with scattered clouds over tawny terrain and asphalt road. Snow falls lightly. A Christmas cactus flower occupies the bottom left, standing halfway up the height of the image. The right side is scattered with white Christmas cards swirling in the wind, emblazoned with an image of a Christmas tree decorated with yellow ball ornaments. The words of the haiku occupy the centre top of the image in yellow Caflisch Script Pro Bold font. The image as a whole is created with flat shapes and bright colours.

I am mostly a visual artist, but I like to create "found poetry", specifically daily haiku made from the statuses of my Facebook friends. It was my Mom who started this, and officially passed the responsibility onto me when she became too busy.
