Pic and a Word #304: Transition

I’m happy to bring you fresh spring images from yesterday. It’s colder than it looks though. Waiting for warm peace (expression by Slavoj Žižek).


From will to do
from has to been
from fire to flood
from calm to storm
from winter to spring
from defeat to victory
from pandemic to war
from cold war to warm peace
from nothing to everything

In response to Patrick Jennings’ Pic and a Word Challenge #304: Transition

This day in my blogging history

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

    1. Thanks, Betsy. The horse handles are in my city, Ljubljana in Slovenia, and yet I only discovered them after moving away. As for the blossoms – I’m really confused which colour is which tree… I believe these are almonds though. I always thought that cherries must be pink but apparently it’s not so.

  1. Spring, yes. The wait is every bit worthy when the blossoms come to remind us how precious life is.
    Cherry blossoms. Yes, I saw a lone tree in full bloom on my walk today. So happy.
    Lovely poem. Love photos as always.
    Stay as you are. Thinking of you when I have a lovely calendar that I love. Thank you. xoxo

    1. Thank you, Selma! 🙂 I’m so happy that you love my calendar and that it makes you think of me. Seasons are a great reminder. Let them last. I can imagine your lone tree. Was it pink? I here that cherry blossoms can be white as well.


  2. This warms my heart and assures me of Spring. My fave is #7 from the top, but I also love the violets, and for some reason the composition of #6 grabs me every time I look at it. Love that shadow as the backdrop. Happy Spring, Manja.

    1. Happy spring to you too, Crystal. It’s coming! I’m glad you like them. I returned home for my camera after I came upon this corner also because I remembered you’d enjoy seeing them. Thank you! These violets are in the same place every year, and only in this place.

      1. I’m working on a painting currently. Once, its done, I’ll give your beautiful picture a try. Your pictures are so tempting. 🙂 Thanks Manja for letting me. XXX

  3. Gorgeous emerging spring! (It’s blowing and snowing here today amid our daffodils!) Thanks also for sharing past posts. I particularly like Bestia and his stick (“there and then”) and the gorgeous rainy day close-ups of shimmering copper.

  4. Beautiful poem and hopeful spring blossoms (though of course, war continues to rage). Bestia’s eye, rainbow, horse head door handles and a rainy window pane – that in itself is a most excellent visual poem.

      1. Oh goodness, I forgot about that. I hope I get time to do it. Will you combine your post-a-day with NaPoWriMo? It would make sense to. You shall be most pressed for time, dear Manja!
