Happy Easter!

Bleats from the meadow
Echoed down through the valley
Easter’s happy song

Happy Easter to Ewe all! πŸ°πŸ‘πŸ’šπŸ˜Š

Haiku: Ewe Called

Quick bleat back to base
Whilst out running my errands
Info for the flock

Anyone got a better one?

Dolphin’s Passport #haiku

Here’s a couple more pages from the #artmarks30daychallenge:

There aren’t many marks on this, I was going for the minimalist look. Quite by accident it’s rather dreamy and looks a bit from outer space.

This one is completely different and looks like a dolphin’s passport or something. I feel a poem coming on.

Enough nautical miles swum

For a stamp from every sucker

On an Octopus’s tentacle.

Macro Monday: Burl or Knot?

So, does anyone know what these are called? Could it be a burlΒ or a knot?

The photo could have been more macro but I didn’t think that was as interesting. I like the surrounding wood. It looks like a bowl or a plate from a long time ago.

Has anyone seen this marking on a tree?

Snow Much Fun

After some seriously weird weather we got some sledding snow yesterday. I took my two and a couple of other kids to the slopes. They had a blast. (Note to self: Take my camera out more).

Here’s some other kids playing later on. What a fun day playing with all those kids.

Today it was Sandy’s turn to play with her friend. What a hoot they had jumping around (again no camera).

sun shines down on grass
first day of February
where is all the snow?

Hi folks, February is such a fresh month. It’s usually freezing here so let’s be grateful for the weird weather.

How did I get to forty without knowing you are supposed to say gribbit three times on 1st Feb. Who knew?

Anyone like to join in trying a haiku every day in Feb? No pressure. Steam might run out by Friday.

Have a great day!

Scrambled Eggs and a Penguin

image

You cannot really
beat the laser focus of
making scrambled eggs.

It occurred to me whilst making scrambled eggs this first morning of the year, that it was a great example of focusing.

The dog wanted to come in the house in the middle of me making it and I just couldn’t leave it. She let herself in but has yet to learn to shut the door behind her.

I can usually do all sorts while making poached eggs but scrambled no way.
So if anyone wants to learn how not to get distracted or do one thing at a time then try scrambling eggs.

It’s month of poetry so expect a lot of poems this month as I dust off my poetry brain.

Happy New Year!
