For Day 7, I’m joining in with Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt. Writers and bloggers are invited to use the prompt creatively by writing a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel, or anything else.

I’ve come up with a 15-word and 17-syllable Haiku called Silent Sunday, with two photographs I took recently in Fontibre, Cantabria, Spain.

Silent Sunday

Don’t speak now keep still,
Listen to wind shaking trees,
Watch drops slip down leaves.


Trees and leaves, like flowers are always quiet, peaceful and so pretty. It’s impossible to feel upset or angry while looking at them, their light shines straight into our hearts.

We all need a few minutes of silence, to recap, listen to ourselves carefully and recharge our batteries for the coming week.

So, this weekend, look for trees, leaves or flowers, they’ll make you smile and help you regroup!

Send me a picture of a tree, leaf or flower on twitter and I’ll write you a poem:)


#SilentSunday Almeria to Cordoba by Car #SundayBlogShare

Seen today during the three-hour trip from Almería to Córdoba:

             Almost desert-like hills of Almería

                      The Mediteranean Sea to the left.

              There were plenty of tunnels carved into the mountains.

                                                   More dry hills.

Cordoba in the distance, at the foot of the mountain range called, Sierra Morena.

Is it only me, or do any of you find you get inspiration as someone else is driving you, while you’re taking photos, jotting ideas, writing some flash fiction, checking blog posts and twitter messages etc.

The journey always seems so short!

It was sad to leave my best friend, Anna and Viven, behind in Almería, but such is life. 

At least she had a lovely birthday party, paella and cake included in the menu! 

Here’s the proof:

              Happy Birthday Anna with Vivien and Lucy!

                 I love Almerimar!
