  1. I just love the artwork of children (I posted a child drawing on my blog this evening as well!) So beautiful, creative and poetic. I agree with Picasso about the wonder of children's drawings. If only I could still see the world that way.

  2. These are all brilliant!

  3. Extremely delightful pictures and worthy haikus.. what a visit this.. I am feeling soaked in happiness.. loved it Noelle.. Thanks..

  4. Oh my!! What talented children! I really enjoyed this! Thank you!

  5. this was precious. and they are very artistic and creative children.

  6. i heart ART and haiku from the eyes of children.
    you are a collection of bright playful sunshine gracing our day!

  7. stopped in now to say
    i red*poppied my haiku...
    a bright morning kiss.

  8. I no longer have much incentive to behave myself...evidently I'm already in Heaven! These are gorgeous. Made me love life even more than I already do! :)

  9. all beautifully written and the essential of haiku .... not in syllables or in subject matter .... but all honest and uncontrived

  10. These are adorable! And so clever! I can just see a toddler following a bee from flower to flower--and how beautiful the picture is! The same with the the sleepy moon just on the horizon! They are all amazing and so authentic--nothing contrived. Thanks, Noelle! Love

  11. "Out of the mouths of babes" ..... we can learn much.

    Love Sue x

  12. Sweetness and freshness abound. Thank you.
