October 2021

Before this October rolls by too fast as months do, here is last year’s in twenty images for my Calendar series. First, a paragraph of apologies. I have stopped replying to comments under my blog posts, and for this I’m not happy. I always read them with such pleasure. Your words are proof that thereContinue reading “October 2021”

Happy Branko birthday!

Today is my father’s birthday and we have been celebrating all weekend. This post will have three galleries: of dogs, of goodies, and of our past year together. It’s not every year that you hit 77, currently the most popular Slovenian number: This year we are together on your birthday for a change, but throughoutContinue reading “Happy Branko birthday!”

Lens-Artists PC: Shadow heroes

Where I live there is a little park. I needed a while but then I realised what is strange about it: there is not a single bench. But there are tall pine trees that cast great shadows. I’m not a fan of black and photo photos (mine, that is) but I thought this photo ofContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Shadow heroes”

Day 25 & Pic and a Word #310: Petal

Today is the Liberation Day in Italy, and in my poem two ladies of the marshes are fighting for my body and soul. I have a nice memory from last year’s Liberation Day. We drove to the lagoon again after being locked into our municipality for ages, but the supermarket was closed and we wentContinue reading “Day 25 & Pic and a Word #310: Petal”

Day 18 & Lens-Artists PC: Piran sunset colours

When uncle sent me these photos four days ago, I promised him to put them on my blog. I didn’t know I’ll get a chance so soon though. And in my poem, some more (para) romantics. Today the photos first to set the mood. My travelling uncle has a new phone. The first red photoContinue reading “Day 18 & Lens-Artists PC: Piran sunset colours”

Day 14 & Thursday Doors: First two weeks of Tuscany

My first three blogs were called Mexi Movie. I’m ready for a film of my life. In fact, this is what my blog is. A film with lots of doors. Prompt 14: “Today’s challenge is a fun one: write a poem that takes the form of the opening scene of the movie of your life.“ NineContinue reading “Day 14 & Thursday Doors: First two weeks of Tuscany”

Day Three & Pic and a Word #307

Today we were to react to a 4-line stanza by another poet – and look, Patrick has a poem of exactly four lines in his Pic and a Word challenge this week. Prompt 3: “It’s a Spanish form called a ‘glosa’ – literally a poem that glosses, or explains, or in some way responds toContinue reading “Day Three & Pic and a Word #307”

Pic and a Word #306: Garden?

A garden poem I’ve just had a garden post but gardens are always nice, say I when I see Patrick’s new theme. Let’s see. So many gardens that I miss! It’s always wonderful to come back to the garden. I know! I’ll search for various song lyrics that mention a garden, such as, you know,Continue reading “Pic and a Word #306: Garden?”

Pic and a Word #305: The sea

My today’s poem is channelled by the Oracle, as K. calls magnetic poetry, and comes with an old sunset. I haven’t seen anything like this in a while. But first – happy first day of spring! I didn’t know it’s today when I went on my first walk without my winter coat this morning, butContinue reading “Pic and a Word #305: The sea”
