A little bit about moi:
I am a Family Life Educator/life skills facilitator and counsellor on a help line for youths.
I have been working in the helping profession for 25+ years and volunteered in various capacities. I’m a mother of 2 adult children, a nana, a sister, and proud owner of a Siberian-mix cat, Bette, I refer to as my BFF (best feline friend).
This blog was once called Cher Shares where I started writing prose,flash fiction and various forms of poetry. Then I fell in love with Haiku, so I changed this to Tournesol dans un Jardin and my nom de plume for Haiku and other Japanese forms in poetry is Tournesol (sunflower).
I try to follow daily prompts at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai where our host Chèvrefeuille is dedicated to this form, is a published poet as well and encourages his followers in crafting this beautiful form of writing. I am still learning…so much to learn but this form is like painting a picture of a moment in time…in words in the classical form which would 17 syllables in three lines, 5-7-5 although if your thought is expressed in less, that`s okay too.
Thanks for dropping by.
