Clouds #onewordprompt #poetry

breaking through clouds

my eyes radiate your blue

toes long to dance on white fluffiness

fingers spin imaginary cotton candy

 tease us as you form animal shapes

dancing on sky’s dance floor with ease

elusive are your sweet offerings

What do you think of when you behold clouds?

 

Today’s One word prompt at WordPress  is Clouds

Inspired #aviation #photography

No words 

those who serve their country

soar on wings

Today the United States Marines retired the faithful CH-46 aka Phrog at the Air and Space Museum.

The Journey Makes All the Difference #photochallenge

Always another bend in the road

before we reach those we love

always another step to take

before were are home

always another hill to climb

before we are here and safe

The Daily Post Photochallenge for this week is On The Way. What journeys do you experience on the way?

Smiles Upon the Weed #poetry

weed

Live these moments free

blow about in spring

laugh with the breeze

wide-spread your seed

*

a prima ballerina

proud, straight and tall

you await the season’s signal

headdress bobs above them all

white feathered  dancers

released to the air

you giggle with the day

laughter your fan fare

now dried and empty

you lifeless droop and sway

the final dance is broken

as you leave the stage

last words spoken

a whisper to the wise

“dance above the treetops

tiptoe in the sky

live these moments free

blow about in spring

laugh with the breeze

smile upon the weed”

 

flower

“A weed is no more than a flower in disguise, which is seen through at once, if love give a man eyes.”

James Russell Lowell (Brainy quotes)

This week’s prompt at Poet’s United Midweek Motif is “Weeds.” So often we see them but rarely do we celebrate them.

Not to Scale #photography #poetry

 

 

whether viewing football

through a glass

winter scene

rear view passed

what rose is sweeter

than its name

endless scales

perception changed

 

Ok so the poem is silly. The first photograph is an 80″ view of the Superbowl through an 8 oz glass. These all being offered for the WordPress Photochallenge  prompt- SCALE

 

Survival #bwphotography #wood #haiku

trunk

around a corner

twisting to see the sun

survival

snow dust

 

The trunk of the top plant amazed me as it turned around almost two corners to get to a stronger light source. This is my black and white offering for Cee’s Black and White – “Wood”

Lifeless #loss #death #poetry #haiku #photography

 

grave shadows

 

 

breath in my laughter

where do I look now for life?

I live in black

Dia de los Muertos

Discover Texture #dpchallenge #poetry #photo

Tall

you reach for the heavens

willowy

you grasp flowing streams

light driftwood on the beach

by starlight make fantastic dreams

attend a barn raising

in a simpler time

each gathering is a harvest

wood textures discovery’s  find
