#SundayWalks ‘Even in Winter’ #Haiku #HappyNewYear

Even in winter,

Yellow daisies shine like gold,

Smiling at frail sun.

Even in winter,

Tired leaves fall from dry branches,

Shining on pavement.

Even in winter,

Vibrant green-leaved bushes hide

Red flowers gleaming.

Even in winter,

Bare trees stretch, because they know

Spring’s not far away.

Photos taken this weekend walking around Fuengirola, Malaga.

Happy winter walking!

#FridayFeeling #haiku ‘A Christmas Wish’ #poem

Shades of gold and red,

Memories of Christmas past,

Hearts both smile and weep.

I’m feeling happy and excited, planning meals and family reunions, yet nostalgic as Christmas approaches.

There’s so much to look forward to, but also so many people to remember and miss.

Here’s a poem for the person I miss most ❤ every day.

A Christmas Wish

If you were here with me,

Right now,

I’d be twice as happy.

If you could hold my hand,

Once again,

I’d be twice as brave.

If I could phone you now,

One more time,

I’d hear your wise advice.

If I could hear your voice,

Once more,

I’d laugh and jump and cry.

If we could talk and plan,

Like we would,

We’d find a way ahead.

If we could sit and chat,

Today,

You’d help me see the light.

If only I could have

One Christmas wish,

I’d wish to be with you again,

Just once.

For Elsa❤

#Tanka Come Inside

Stop, please come inside

and see, the treasures I’ve kept

just for you to see.

Some are carefully hidden,

Surprises await inside.

I love wandering around the streets of new, and known, towns and cities. I always look out for doors for this challenge!

And because I’m a curious and creative writer, I always wonder what’s beyond an open door…

#Haiku Open Doors

wandering the streets

peeking behind open doors

looking for treasures

I took the first three photos in Cordoba and the last two in Reinosa, both cities are in Spain.
