Four for August

Hello everyone. In July, I outlined a six-month plan to do a fund-raising campaign. Each month I will create four 5 x 7"watercolors on the theme of mending/healing.   Prints of these will be available for $20, of which 50% will go as a donation to the ACLU of Northern California. (postage is extra) My particular concern is for immigrants' rights issues.  Today I sent off $60!!!  A BIG thank you! You will receive an email acknowledgement from the ACLU of Northern California.  If you are interested in participating, please contact me through my email address (click on "complete profile" in the sidebar under "about me".  Then click on "email" under "contact".  This will all be a little easier once I have my new website.  If you have trouble reaching me, please let me know in a comment.
Here are the four August prints with their accompanying haiku:
Hearts become as stones;
they do not care to listen.
The weeds take over.

 How did the little
lantern of hope find itself
there in the wildness?

Mother Nature, how
please, do you regard all this
constant shouting waste?

May we have balance,
decency, kind words and peace...
a sigh of longing.

Thank you, dear readers!
