May Cross

Unexpected gift

Multicoloured life fills street

Magnificent Earth 


Carnival of spring

Honouring blossoms of May

Feast on the flowers


I saw these beautiful May crosses on my way to work this morning and they reminded me how lucky I am to be alive.

This weekend there will be eating, drinking, dancing and singing around the beautiful crosses made of flowers and placed in squares, often by churches, on the first weekend of May in Cordoba. A feast for our eyes!

I plan to visit and take lots of photos this weekend!


This year is my fourth AtoZ Challenge. My theme this year is poetry once again. I’ll be writing a haiku a day, but I’m also adding a new hobby to the posts, photography. I will post one of my photos, or a donated photo, every day to accompany my haiku.

This April, I’ll also be sharing my poems and joining another group of poets at National Poetry Writing Month, organised since 2003 by Maureen Thorson. Write 30 poems in 30 days. I’m in! What about you?
