#WordlessWednesday ‘Crosses of May Festivity’ in Córdoba, Spain. #Haiku

This Cross won First Prize

Close up of the fountain where the cross is placed

Another prize-winning cross

I love the idea of a mirror on the cross, looking back at the viewer, who then looks at him/herself.

This idea of searching for inspiration inspired this Haiku:

*

See my reflection,

Search deep in my heart, show me

Who I need to be.

The Crosses Festival is over. Next week I’ll show you some patios or courtyards of the world-famous May Patio Festival.

#WordlessWednesday #SixWordStories ‘The search for peace starts within.’

 

This photograph doesn’t really do justice to the beauty I saw when I took the picture.

The stupa is beautiful, as is the Mediterranean Sea and sky in the background, as well as the tropical vegetation, yet however much beautiful stimulation my mind receives, in the end, it’s when I close my eyes, breathe  and look inside that I can find peace, within myself.

White and gold on blue

Now close your eyes and breathe

What is it you see?
