You are a gift

Miralem, my friend who celebrates today: You are so good at gifting yourself that you will last forever. (No, it’s not my dog’s birthday, even though he is in so many photos. Miralem is my human friend in Slovenia.) On this day I sometimes show the world what you have gifted me through the years.Continue reading “You are a gift”

Day 30: No debate

Let’s finish off April with a (non)debateable poem, twenty images from where I wrote poems this month, and a guy I’d like you to meet. Prompt 30: Write a palinode – a poem in which you retract a view or sentiment expressed in an earlier poem. For example, you might pick a poem you draftedContinue reading “Day 30: No debate”

Day 26: Meet Meta

Here is a portrait poem of someone you should really meet. Prompt 26: Write a portrait poem that focuses on or plays with the meaning of the subject’s name. This could be a self-portrait, a portrait of a family member or close friend, or even a portrait of a famous or historical person.  Meet MetaContinue reading “Day 26: Meet Meta”

Day 16: A not song

I returned home yesterday after a week in Slovenia with a palm tree. I’m glad that I managed to post my poem on all days despite everything going on. On to the second half of the month with my not song. Prompt 16:  Today’s prompt is a poem of negation – yes (or maybe, no),Continue reading “Day 16: A not song”

Thursday Doors 19/5/22: Green doors from Slovenia and Trieste

I made it! With this post my one year of daily blogging is complete. With this post we have made the full circle of one year together. Thank you for all your visits and words! I’ll be posting less from now on through the summer but will still drop by, for example on Thursdays. BeContinue reading “Thursday Doors 19/5/22: Green doors from Slovenia and Trieste”

Thursday Doors 12/5/22: Green doors of Italy

I set out to find green doors in my archives and immediately had 50 photos from one year alone. That’s why today Italy, Slovenia next week. Last week K. mentioned in a comment to my post that she liked green doors and I was reminded of the green door post I did once before. IContinue reading “Thursday Doors 12/5/22: Green doors of Italy”

Lens-Artists PC: Shadow heroes

Where I live there is a little park. I needed a while but then I realised what is strange about it: there is not a single bench. But there are tall pine trees that cast great shadows. I’m not a fan of black and photo photos (mine, that is) but I thought this photo ofContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Shadow heroes”

Pic and a Word #312: Disorder

Today an erasure poem about the state of the world. If I hear disorder, there can be only one: the song from the Judgment Night soundtrack, the five minutes from which I used to get my power and explain to everybody about its three accelerating speeds. Only much later I learned that Ice-T and SlayerContinue reading “Pic and a Word #312: Disorder”

A man on the roof

Last year at this time I was going slightly mad. What else is new, eh? Here he is, unassuming, innocent, spotted and shot from far away for being a novelty. I lacked impulses so much that five minutes with a man on the roof meant the world to me. And this year that I couldContinue reading “A man on the roof”

Thursday Doors 5/5/22: Capalbio

You have seen this town and most of its doors already but the photos are new. On Sunday I hopped up with my passing visitors and clicked around while they climbed the tower. Sunday was lovely. Yesterday you saw the poppies we found, and today you will see our nearest town, Capalbio on the hill,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 5/5/22: Capalbio”
