Four April centos: No. 3

My third cento may be titled “Bad sad mad” but that doesn’t mean these 24 closing thoughts of the month are any worse than the rest. They simply gravitated together to create something that we all need to purge from time to time. When April was over and done, your poems didn’t leave me alone.Continue reading “Four April centos: No. 3”

Day 30: No debate

Let’s finish off April with a (non)debateable poem, twenty images from where I wrote poems this month, and a guy I’d like you to meet. Prompt 30: Write a palinode – a poem in which you retract a view or sentiment expressed in an earlier poem. For example, you might pick a poem you draftedContinue reading “Day 30: No debate”

Thursday Doors 30/3/23 &CFFC: Things people live in

As a step away from my immediate doors here is a compilation post of homes with the strongest appeal, captured in the last ten years in Italy and Slovenia, my roaming grounds. Unsurprisingly, most of them are guarded by green doors. I used to do them often, such compilations, but not in a while. LetContinue reading “Thursday Doors 30/3/23 &CFFC: Things people live in”

February 2022

This post has three parts: a funny re-enactment attempt, a song, and twenty photos from last February for my Calendar series. First, you saw it last year already but I just have to repost this experiment. We had an online carnival last year and bestia had to be the seal. It’s been a while sinceContinue reading “February 2022”

Thursday Doors 16/2/23: Early spring in Rome

This week I give you spring sights and not as many but at least fresh doors from this weekend in Monteverde, a residential district in western Rome. This Sunday we went to Rome for lunch to celebrate a couple of family birthdays. As soon as we arrived and bestia greeted everybody (so happy to finallyContinue reading “Thursday Doors 16/2/23: Early spring in Rome”

Thursday Doors 19/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 2.

This is indeed a door post, even though the featured photo is of the first blooming tree I ever saw on Christmas. Not quite true: on previous Christmas I saw the same fruit tree in bloom, just that the photos I took were rather bad. Monteverde, the hospital and residential area of Rome, is whereContinue reading “Thursday Doors 19/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 2.”

January 2022

Here we go, back in time for one year again. This is the beginning of my seventh Calendar series. It’s true that I don’t take as many photos as I used to, but finding twenty last January photos that I wish to gather in this post was not hard. It starts with the first photoContinue reading “January 2022”

Thursday Doors 12/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 1.

Here are some doors and views from Rome, taken one year ago. Nothing fancy nor old, just doors well used and well lived. Monteverde, the district of Rome where amore’s father lives, reminds me of New York, not that I’ve ever visited it. It’s multicultural, not particularly rich and not particularly clean. It has greenContinue reading “Thursday Doors 12/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 1.”

December 2021

Here we go, the last month of the year is here and with it my twelfth but not yet last calendar post. Before the year is through, I will select one photo per month for the final Calendar 2021 post. Yes, I am aware that 2023 is just around the corner, but I still needContinue reading “December 2021”

Thursday Doors 19/5/22: Green doors from Slovenia and Trieste

I made it! With this post my one year of daily blogging is complete. With this post we have made the full circle of one year together. Thank you for all your visits and words! I’ll be posting less from now on through the summer but will still drop by, for example on Thursdays. BeContinue reading “Thursday Doors 19/5/22: Green doors from Slovenia and Trieste”
