Happy birthday to me

Here is an overview of past birthdays since today is one such. Yes, it happened: in the early hours of today I got the best present that no money could buy. In the first half Luka Dončić scored 27 points, the same as all of the Suns combined. It only got worse (for the latter).Continue reading “Happy birthday to me”

Day 28 & Thursday Doors poem

Because it’s Thursday, because my friend asks me what doors mean to me, and because we are to shape up our poem today – the shape can be only one. Prompt 28: “Write a concrete poem. In brief, a concrete poem is one in which the lines are shaped in a way that mimics theContinue reading “Day 28 & Thursday Doors poem”

Day 27: Duplex with the dog

Today I wrote my first duplex and the counting down the days of April made me feel like Scheherezade. What if it must never end? And the dog, the dog is always here somewhere. Prompt 27: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a duplex. A duplex is a variation on the sonnet, developedContinue reading “Day 27: Duplex with the dog”

Day 22 & CFFC: Water

Seven rivers from here and there and some words as long as they still flow.

Day 21 & Thursday Doors 21/4/22: Ljubljana Bežigrad

Why is it that some things end up together? And why don’t I shoot the doors in Slovenia the same way as in Italy? First the poem, and then the doors with an invitation to write about them. Prompt 21: “This prompt asks you to write a poem in which you first recall someone youContinue reading “Day 21 & Thursday Doors 21/4/22: Ljubljana Bežigrad”

Day 20: Chocolate fun

Have you ever thought about how chocolate feels? No, you only think about yourself. Prompt 20: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that anthropomorphizes a kind of food. It could be a favorite food of yours, or maybe one you feel conflicted about.”  A bar in waiting “Have a fruit ofContinue reading “Day 20: Chocolate fun”

Day 18 & Lens-Artists PC: Piran sunset colours

When uncle sent me these photos four days ago, I promised him to put them on my blog. I didn’t know I’ll get a chance so soon though. And in my poem, some more (para) romantics. Today the photos first to set the mood. My travelling uncle has a new phone. The first red photoContinue reading “Day 18 & Lens-Artists PC: Piran sunset colours”

Day 17 & Pic and a Word #309: Dogs

I could write a poem with a line for every dog I’ve ever met… Prompt 17: “This is a fun one – it’s a prompt developed by the comic artist Lynda Barry, and it asks you to think about dogs you have known, seen, or heard about, and then use them as a springboard into whereverContinue reading “Day 17 & Pic and a Word #309: Dogs”

Day Ten: I Love Luka & Pic and a Word #308: Construction

I knew this day would come: Today I just must post the poem which I wrote on Thursday, because my love for Luka is stronger than any rules. This post will be interesting to you if you love basketball at least a little. If not, you will learn something about me: I’m a fan. LoveContinue reading “Day Ten: I Love Luka & Pic and a Word #308: Construction”
