The haiku was found in a tiny pocket edition of "Walden," by Thoreau.  It's collaged with teabags, handmade paper, old music and cheesecloth.  The cheesecloth and the book were also tea-stained to go better with the old music.

the haiku reads:

music at sunrise
expectation of the dawn
does not forsake us

What a fascinating composition this is Kathleen. Very imaginative use of the printed word and music. I am mesmorized

thanks, Cherie -- I had fun looking for the haiku after learning the word for the month.

Your combination of sheet music, cheese cloth and words have tempted me to try out your formula.

Kathleen, I really like the subtle colors of your piece, and the use of actual music in your collage makes it even more interesting.
