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”

Just flowers

My favourite kind of flowers are those that are still growing. All these were growing last May here in southern Tuscany. Okay, the Ukraine had to win the Eurovision Song Contest. And now I’m so extremely interested in seeing whether the league and the system will let Luka and the Mavs win tonight and eliminateContinue reading “Just flowers”

Friendly Friday leading cat lines

This post is really an excuse to show Sarah the cats around my home last May. Hopefully certain lines that lead to cats will be noticeable. Whatever you do, never learn photography from me.

Down to earth, outspoken, determined (someContinue reading “For Alenka and all Taurus people”

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 22 & CFFC: Water

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

Day 19: What is poetry

Today is a good day, the Mavs won even without Luka to tie the series against the Jazz 1 : 1, birds are happy, the spiral looks up, these are my trees and here is my poem. Prompt 19: “Today’s challenge is to write a poem that starts with a command. It could be asContinue reading “Day 19: What is poetry”

Day 13: Stream of a con

How about some random thoughts about a calf and how amazing things are going to be?

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.
