Day Six: Horticulture

It’s Wednesday but I can’t be wordless today. Let’s have some horsies from Monterano, shall we. And in the poem, a lovers’ quarrel with help of Dorothy Parker. Prompt 6: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a variation of an acrostic poem. But rather than spelling out a word with the first lettersContinue reading “Day Six: Horticulture”

Day Four: Poem as a prompt

I’m so grateful for our April and NaPoWriMo and everybody who writes and reads poems, and especially for Maureen’s prompts. Not only does she provide daily examples of great poetry (I love today’s “Gentle Leader” by Lucy Schiller so much), but there hasn’t been a repeat of a prompt in the last four years, IContinue reading “Day Four: Poem as a prompt”

Day Two & PPAC: Forma Viva 3.

Today we conclude the visit to the open-air sculpture exhibition on the Slovenian coast, and have a look at some words in my poem for Day Two. Prompt 2: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem based on a word featured in a tweet from Haggard Hawks, an account devoted to obscure andContinue reading “Day Two & PPAC: Forma Viva 3.”

Lens-Artists PC: Travel teachings

Amy has kept us nicely busy this week with her theme. What have travels taught me? The more I think about it, the less I can say about it. Except this: Movement is a point of life. The thing is to move from this to that, and possibly back, but not always. Different places activateContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Travel teachings”

Weekend Writing Prompt #235: Death by concert

I rarely decide on a new challenge since my blogging days are really full as it is, but Nope, Not Pam (last week) and Sunra Rainz prompted me to have a try at a new prompt. Each week writer Sammi Cox proposes the word and the length and off we go. This week it’s mirrorContinue reading “Weekend Writing Prompt #235: Death by concert”

October 2020, part 2

Here is the second part of my last October as promised. Today’s photos are from two mega trips as a reminder that I must just go. To think about it, October was the last month when we could have any amount of fun out of our municipality for more or less half a year! SoContinue reading “October 2020, part 2”

Pic and a Word #284: Vulnerable

“The vulnerable won’t help” is one of those pot idea lines that have stuck. What do you mean you don’t have these? Since I have already written a poem with this title once I will repeat it this time. It was short and not so sweet and posted in April 2018 for NaPoWriMo together withContinue reading “Pic and a Word #284: Vulnerable”

Friendly Friday flower button

It took me a while to discover the flower button on my point-and-shoot and experiment with what it could do. Now I have a new old Nikon D5000 and it likes to look at the world up close even more. All today’s photos were taken with my first DSLR camera, which I’ve had not yetContinue reading “Friendly Friday flower button”

Getaways with Flavia

She has this category on her blog and it’s the best it could be: Getaway with Manja. We had twelve such since December 2019 when we first met for real in Rome. Then first pandemic got in the way and now she is moving far away for a year. I often say that blogging bringsContinue reading “Getaways with Flavia”
