Mercurial

Here is a nonet I wrote yesterday with nine syllables in the first line and one in the ninth. The photos are old but from the heart and slightly mercurial. Mercurial Nine is the times you cried for my love. Eight times I said no and cried back. Seven was not even when six cameContinue reading “Mercurial”

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”

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 Five & Last photo of March

The photo above is the last that I took in March because bushboy asks for it, and in the poem, the murder of peace as it happens. Another soul-stirring poem in the prompt today, Alfredo Aguilar’s “Palomar Mountain” from Waxwing. And let me add another cheerful one: “The Date (Notes to Self)” by Romana Iorga.Continue reading “Day Five & Last photo of March”

Day One & Friendly Friday frames

Just like my English, my photography is that little bit wrong. And that’s what saves me. Damn! I just realised that after eight years and six free blogs, WordPress has reduced my free upload space from 3 GB to 500 MB! Thanks for nothing!! I started this blog in August and am at 100% already.Continue reading “Day One & Friendly Friday frames”

Lens-Artists PC: Curvy stairs

Here is a collection of my more or less curvy staircases from Rome, Slovenia and the curviest garden of all times right here in Tuscany. I was happy to see Leya’s theme for this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge. Curves are dear and near to my heart. When I saw Sofia’s lovely staircase in her postContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Curvy stairs”

Bestia and beasties

Here is another stroll through my last March with the emphasis on animals other than birds (which already got a recent post). This post is to honour Sunra Nina (here is her recent Poem the Wind Blew Over) who was hopping around my blog for a while and today happily announced that she Finally CaughtContinue reading “Bestia and beasties”

PPAC: Prekmurje 7. – Pertoča and Mura

This post with a church and twin border towns separated by the river concludes this series from the northeasternmost part of Slovenia. For the last post I have saved possibly the biggest surprise of the day, and I’m not even religious. When we entered St. Helen’s Church in Pertoča my eyebrows shot up and thisContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 7. – Pertoča and Mura”

Musica italiana

Since I woke up singing today, here is a musical post with ten Italian songs that speak to my soul. But first, a lovely post by Smitha on her blog Eúnoia in which she shows the February page of my Calendar 2022 as she had it printed. It looks even better than I could imagine.Continue reading “Musica italiana”

Lens-Artists PC: Low light x3

When I first saw this week’s theme, set by our new host Sofia, I grumbled a little on the inside. Low light is when I put my camera away. But then I had an idea… First a quick note, for those who are counting: Today Slovenia won silver in ski-jumping team event! This is medalContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Low light x3”
