Tanka Tuesday – Energy

Since today is a full moon, my poem has to be about her. I was waiting for the moon to rise and take the photo for the post. This moon is a supermoon and is called a snow moon.

View from my kitchen at 7 pm eastern time

Letting go of the sacred innocence
the soothing music of the forest
in the dark February sky
bathed in flower essence and
dressed in a silver dress
distressed wolves howling
full snow moon blooms
she is bold
desired
joy

The words for today are game and trouble so I’ve chosen bold and distressed as synonyms. I’m using the Etheree form of poetry.

Full moon blessing to you!

Sunday Stills: Blank pages

Good Morning!

Today’s the theme is Fresh, well, so many things fresh things around me this morning:

The fresh flowers I’ve on my kitchen counter, fresh eggs, from the farm market, that I scrambled for my husband, fresh laundry waiting to be ironed, a new book on my coffee table …, but today I want to show the freshness of a habit, my journaling practice. I hope I have captured it below:

Let us live simply in the freshness of the present moment, in the clarity of pure awakened mind.

Matthieu Ricard

The freshness of a new morning
Coffee fragance diffusing through the kitchen
Blank pages waiting
Waiting for words
And thoughts 
To surrender to the moment

Have a lovely and fresh Sunday!

FOTD – Bouquets

Festival of flowers at the grocery store. So pretty, I couldn’t resist and take this pic. It wasn’t easy to decide which bouquet to bring home with me, but as Monet said:

I must have flowers, always, and always. 
Claude Monet

I had to pick one of them. Can you guess which one?

Tanka Tuesday: Comfort

Good morning! It’s another Tuesday, time for some poetry. It’s raining, but not normal rain, it’s ice rain. The school buses have been canceled, but I need to go to work. Waiting a little bit, not sure if it will get worse or better, but now I want to enjoy a cup of coffee and poetry before venturing out into the wild weather.

Today’s words are Meaning and Passion, but synonyms! Of course, I’ve chosen Haiga again!

The sense of bare trees
Listening and whispering
Warmth of my being

Have a lovely day!

Sunday Stills: Frozen River

Today, Terri asks us to post about Frozen, an easy theme for me. I only need to cross a street to take a few pics of a frozen river. Many pretty spots to shoot, but this one above is magical, an ice sculpture!

This corner was sparking while being bathed with sunshine. I stopped there a little bit, a few minutes of solitude listening to the water move under the ice.

And on the way, I found this piece of ice shaped like a heart. Yes, secret messages everywhere.

Hope you enjoyed to walk along the frozen river with me.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
