Wordless Wednesday: Which way signs

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Which Way and for Which Way Photo Challenge, hosted by San at Alive and Trekking This day in my blogging history

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”

Thursday Doors 13/1/22: Santa Severa 4.

This year looks like a good year for finishing stuff. I try to keep a neat blog but sometimes things are left horribly unfished (and even unfinished). This is the museum inside the Santa Severa castle and its doors. Last summer on my previous blog we finally reached the museum in the third Thursday DoorsContinue reading “Thursday Doors 13/1/22: Santa Severa 4.”

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”

Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor

Since today is my grandma’s birthday, I’m taking you on a door tour through Maribor, her city, where my father was born. It is also Slovenia’s city number 2. We visited her often and I spent many happy times with her, but she died two years before I moved to Tuscany almost nine years ago.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor”

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”

Wordless Wednesday with more than four colours

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Four Colors or More This day in my blogging history (Actually tomorrow, December 30th)

Complete Calendar 2020

I like to relive the past like this, year after year, month by month, 20 photos at the time. Before the new year can start, I have to deal away with the previous. These were my twelve months of 2020. At the time when people make calendars for 2022, I’m two years behind. What elseContinue reading “Complete Calendar 2020”

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?”

Lens-Artists PC: I choose

I was really happy to see that this week Tina lets us choose what to post. I’ve just had a wonderful Saturday and wish to show it to you. I went Among Humans again, but it started with a bird. I think I understand now why I don’t do it often, go anywhere out ofContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: I choose”

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”

Pic and a Word #292: Rocky

Today a real-life poem and photos from the Colosseum, but only from the outside. Inside is just a bunch of rocks. The Colosseum “It’s nothing but rocks,” says he, Rome born and bred. “No, I have never been inside, why would I go?” He still takes me to see it on my first visit, immediatelyContinue reading “Pic and a Word #292: Rocky”

Pic and a Word #291: Begging to begin

Today’s poem is so short that it comes with a song. Or is it vice versa? Plus there are pictures, of Rome, of course. It’s where Måneskin are from. Song first. Amore had said that they would win the Eurovision Song Contest for Italy, and they did. This happened in May and he is stillContinue reading “Pic and a Word #291: Begging to begin”

Verboten!

The friend who seven years ago sent me the Pippi book re-emerges from her dark woods of Canada, starts a creative challenge on Facebook and calls Verboten as the theme. Dog forbid I say no. Verboten! To love more than. To love too early. To love still. Verboten! – To show nipples. To not showContinue reading “Verboten!”

Pic and a Word #285: Tango

Tango will be the death of me “When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.” ~Wayne Dyer (with thanks to Selma) Dance, dance. It takes two to tango. And if it doesn’t you don’t and you know. I tellContinue reading “Pic and a Word #285: Tango”

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”
