Well things got a bit busy down on the Quarantine Homestead, so I didn’t get to put these up until today. Sorry about that! But here we are with Haiku Part 2, mostly written on April 12, 2020. Again, some of these might not follow Haiku Rules perfectly, and again, nobody cares, because we’re all quarantined. Once again, if something on this page inspires you to create art to go with it, please do! Send artworks to firstname.lastname@example.org with reference to the original work, place, and date of creation.

And once again, that’s all for now! But that’s not all there is! I know there is more art and writing out there, so get it in and let’s get it online! Love from me to you! Stay safe!
