Trees stare at river,
Watching rippling reflections.
River stares at sky,
Admiring its vast blue hue.
Leaf falls on grass, blade quivers.
Hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday!
In ancient gardens
Dismembered, Roman statues
Watch pruned, potted plants
Bursting with fragrance, glowing
In lush, flourishing patios.
I went for a walk to visit the World Heritage Patios Festival in Cordoba, Spain, this morning with my friend Gabriela. What a stunning place to stimulate all my senses!
I hope you were able to take an inspiring walk this Sunday❤
Searching for the perfect flower…
I think I found it!
What a beauty!
The perfect flower
Is longing to be rescued
By your tender smile
A rose at the zoo
Watches elephant cry, while
Poet writes haiku
Not a Rose
The rose is a rose,
The elephant is not a rose,
And it is not lovely.
An elephant at the zoo is
The poet is a woman,
Who writes about beauty and despair,
While she thinks of lonely elephants,
Watching lovely roses, wondering
Why an elephant is not a rose.
I went to the zoo this morning with my children and grandchildren, and two things struck me; the beautiful roses and the downcast elephant. Well here they are, joined by my pen to be shared to the world.
My daughter and granddaughter
Hope you were able to take an inspiring walk this Sunday❤
Yet I stoop to capture
Luscious plant, which
Lures me towards its extra
Ordinary shade of yellow. Distracting
Wildflowers enticing me along another path.
Distractions are highly underrated.
Daily routines, work, commitments, and the demands of everyday life emphasise that I should focus on objectives and make sure I complete my ‘to do list’ without any distractions.
I disagree. I need to make time for myself and cross items off my ‘to be list’ (more on to do and to be lists here).
Walking, observing my surroundings, taking photos of anything which catches my eye, and writing poems, are some of my favourite distractions.
And now, back to my to do list. Monday is only a few hours away!
Which are your favourite distractions?
Luccia is writing a haiku a day on this years’ AtoZChallenge. Have look!
Broken moon, shining
on cherished dreams. Azure sky.
Hopeful heart, smiling.
