We’re beginning the second week of NaHaiWriMo. Thanks for your thoughtful replies to my haiku and thanks for reading my poems.

Today’s prompt is “paint box.”

I’ve written two haiku. Both are about my uncle who is a muralist. When I doubt I have the energy to finish a project, I just think of Uncle Dan and get busy! I hope you enjoy the image below of one of the many murals he’s painted over the years.

Tomorrow’s prompt is “beating the heat.”
