#AtoZChallenge ‘F is for Flowers’ #Haiku #NaPoWriMo #PoetryMonth

Vivacious flowers,

Spring breeze tickles soft petals,

Colourful music.

****

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 Thorsonn. Write 30 poems in 30 days. I’m in! What about you?

#1linewed #1linerweds Twisted

They look may ornamental, but they’re still twisted, iron bars to keep the princess locked in her tower, or perhaps they’re keeping her safe…

Check out Linda G. Hill’s Blog for more One Liner Wednesday posts!

 

How can I unbend my thoughts,

Twisted like forged iron window grills?

How can I reach the spaces

Trapped between the metal curves?

How can I see the light

Beyond the solid blackness?

How can I melt the unyielding ore and

Unlock the princess in the tower?

Tell me how!

Maybe it’s the beginning of a rainy spring, maybe it’s just that some projects are taking longer than I thought, maybe I’m a little stuck in my WIPs, maybe there are too many WIPs… Probably, it’s just one of those days…

#SilentSunday #Sixwordstory #sixwordstories If Life Deals You Oranges, Enjoy!

 

Sometimes life deals us sour lemons, and others we’re lucky enough to get sweet oranges, so let’s enjoy those wonderful moments and allow ourselves to recharge our batteries and embrace happiness. Perhaps next weeks’ lemons will be sweet, too!

I hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday.

Thank you for being there 🙂

My camera picked up these beautiful early spring flowers yesterday, just for you…

Spring Sue Vincent

If I were a rock…

If I were a rock in a stream, the water would slide over, smoothing my hard edges.

If you were a rock in my stream, you’d roll to my side and we’d weather together.

If we were two rocks in our stream, swaying together, nothing would keep us apart.

If we were pushed over the falls, into the mighty river, we’d be torn apart.  

If we were two rocks in the river, we might meet again and swim towards the ocean.

If we were two rocks in the ocean, would you find me again?
