Noticing and Musings
the words come and go
where can I find the anchor?
the softness of a petal
thoughts and pen falling apart

Thanks for linking! 🙂
Oh, my gosh! I’m so glad you’re back and writing again. I love the image and your lovely tanka. That last line is superb! ❤
Thanks so much, Colleen! You made me smile now! 🙂
There is a fragility in this I like. 🙂
Yes, my raw feelings at that moment!
Nature– such a good looker! and you wrote her a lovely poem. Thanks so much for sharing it here. Stupendously lovely. Be well, Elizabeth. I wish you miracles.
Thanks Selma for the lovely comment! Miracles on your way too!
Spring is such a giver of beauty. Just gorgeous.
I see petals as letters falling to the ground to ‘write’ cryptic verse where they land 😀
I enjoy walking in a petal ‘storm’. Sometimes thinking – I’m glad these petals aren’t cold snowflakes 🙂
Yes, Jules! You got it! Thoughts as petals, happy spring!
Most of the petals are gone, now I’ve got the maple seed helicopters – so fun to watch them twirl!
They are here too, I enjoy to watch them as well!
I do see the same “word” similarities, Elizabeth showing opposite reactions to the same event. I love your photo and poem. I think we dwell in both moments.
I was surprised when I read yours, love this synchronization!
Elizabeth, “Thoughts and pen falling apart.” I pictured pieces of both lying on the blank paper like petals around the rose bush. But that couldn’t have been what you meant. Then I imagined your thoughts dripping into words which flowed from your pen, sticking to the paper. leaving both the thought and the pen behind and ready to begin a new life of their own.
Hi Marsha, I’m so happy that this tiny poem has made your imagination fly between thoughts and words. Love both descriptions!
So what were your thoughts as you wrote it. Was I even close?
All about scattered thoughts, not easy to lay down on the paper. 🙂
Very different than what I imagined, but I did exactly what you were thinking. I wrote down my scattered thoughts about the poem, not knowing if they were correct, but just as they hit me. It was a fun way to engage with the poem. Not all poems engage me that much, but for some reason those words lit a fire under me. Isn’t it interesting which words spark conversations? This was a great post, Elizabeth because days later I still remember exactly what I was thinking when I read your words. Kuddos! 🙂
Hi Marsha, I’m so happy that it has really touched you! I know, sometimes the synchronization is strong and we feel the power of the connection.
Yes, indeed! 🙂
Elizabeth–such a beautiful photo!
Great combinaation of words and picture.
