Pic and a Word #302: Progress

Today’s poem and three galleries are a direct result of a photo father posted on Facebook a few days ago. Everything changes, sometimes nightmarishly so. But first, to start on a high note, the highlight of last night’s NBA All Stars game and it took place during a break. You give all your 22 yearsContinue reading “Pic and a Word #302: Progress”

Pic and a Word #301: Cadence

Today a poem, a couple of pics and a medal. In the new game against the Clippers, frustrated with everybody and everything, Luka Dončić scored 45 points but Mavs still lost by two, after which, at around 5 am, I went to bed, quite a bit sour. I dreamed that I was playing cards withContinue reading “Pic and a Word #301: Cadence”

Pic and a Word #300: Studio City

Here is a poem with more than one pic from my city of origin where ugly things are happening. But it looks really lovely. Studio City After 30 years my favourite program on national TV Slovenia, a rare one that still gives a damn and is still worth a damn, is losing funds, collaborators, hopeContinue reading “Pic and a Word #300: Studio City”

Pic and a Word #299: Amber man

You say “amber” and I think of a man, a legend, Journey. Here he is twice in 100 words. Amber only turns up at the end. The first drabble – a 100-word story – is from Greece where we were together (and has been posted here with four other Greek memories), the second is fromContinue reading “Pic and a Word #299: Amber man”

Pic and a Word #298: Divine

When the pandemic first hit and the world was running out of toilet paper, the only thing that ran out in our small supermarket here in Tuscany was the wine. Divine Is this a test? How could divine get its name from anything else but di vino, from wine? In response to Patrick Jennings’ Pic andContinue reading “Pic and a Word #298: Divine”

Pic and a Word #297: Ljubljana spectacle

Lately I can’t make my poems in any other way than by twisting the letters and shuffling the words around until they stick. But then again – is there any other way? Spectre of man, spectator of mankind, spectacle of yourself, receptacle of others. Spectacular. Today, January 16th, is the birthday of my two happyContinue reading “Pic and a Word #297: Ljubljana spectacle”

Pic and a Word #296: Bluster

Once in a while I have to google the challenge word we are given. But even once I did, only silly verses dropped by. Bluster, buster, blister, booster. Gust, bust, lust. Just … must. Blast from the past, best for the last: blues & rhythm, drum & bass. The photo accompaniment is more serious. TheseContinue reading “Pic and a Word #296: Bluster”

Pic and a Word #295: Chill, year

A poem, a song, a quote and six photos from today, the first of firsts. Over here the year has started really good. There hasn’t been a single downside about today. Let it last. First, I feel the need for a tune. This one. Have a look at it too. And when you’re done, you’llContinue reading “Pic and a Word #295: Chill, year”

Pic and a Word #294: What travel?

This is how I travel, feet up. The pic is from a previous October but the words are from two days ago and the placement is the same. I haven’t been anywhere since, except brief dog walks. Today I may have been only in our supermarket by the lagoon, choosing chocolate, lettuce, yogurt but I’mContinue reading “Pic and a Word #294: What travel?”

Pic and a Word #293: From the cradle

A cave must have been the cradle of civilisation, agreed? Here is a short ditty in words and a small cave in pictures. From the griddle to the crave from the cradle to the brave from the bridal to the cave from the tidal to the slave. Fun fact: First I had “gradle” in theContinue reading “Pic and a Word #293: From the cradle”
