Illustration description: A sticky, grayscale image with just a hint of sepia. The background is cloudy and dark. The uppermost section of the image is occupied by a blurry, disk-like cloud, made of shapes that look like wings in motion. A tether seems to run from the swirling cloud to the beveled rectangle below. It is as though a tethered bird is flying in circles in the sky. The words of the haiku are printed on the rectangular panel/block at the bottom, the letters all capitalized, in a serif font. The words are in a lighter color than the rectangle, but everything is dull, ashen sepia.
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.
