Paying tribute to my Mom with the 7-Day Black & White Photo Challenge by posting Thanksgiving-themed haiga created from images of some of Mom’s old kitchenware which I still have in my gadget cupboards & utensil drawers, and haiku I wrote via online prompts. . . Mom's yuletide fire the spicy shimmer of her sugar... Continue Reading →
