Awakening #sea #photography



Mist hangs on the edge

spring dons a winter coat

sea laps for sun

The WordPress photo challenge prompt today is Awakening

There is something wonderful about an early morning walk on a misty, deserted beach before the awakening of the crowds later in the day or season.




Await Spring #poetry #photography #haiku

It’s time for a new episode of Carpe Diem’s Kamishibai, or our haibun feature. The goal is to write a haibun about a given theme with a few rules. A haibun is prose and poetry entwined.

1st : You have to use the next five words: flowers; full moon; celebrating; winter and breeze

2nd : Maximum 500 words;

3rd : At least two new haiku, senryu, tanka or kyoka.

We sit and await cold wintery night  where darkness overshadows the light

Warming bodies by a fire. We must wear thick wool attire.

Colors all fade to grey, stealing the warmth of day,


Imaginations stay awake and beckon “do not hibernate.”

Contemplate life’s awakening with golden thoughts of spring

hint of spring

flower hold fast

celebrate triumphant life

spring’s first light

Ag scene spring 2010

victors of spring

mountain’s breeze brushes your cheek

blushing pink

spring field

Sun’s radiant smile

 touch of  winter’s full moon

field a bloom
