between tubes and plates
experiments going on
the results inspire
it's all science is about
little by little
positive or negative
questions and answers
the pathways are completed
the enchantment is broken
Tanka Tuesday this week is Share your Day! I’ve chosen to share a little bit of my workday with you using a poetry form called chōka. The photo represents how sometimes I fell when doing my job. Hope you enjoy it and guess what is my job about.
Yes, above is the photo of Sunday breakfast, today it is only yogurt and cereal, not worth a photo. Hump day means the middle of a workweek, 2 days gone and 2 more to go, in my case 3 to go, today, Wednesday, is one of the longest workdays for me. I’m starting now at 9 and I go until around 7 pm. And I made the mistake to open my email earlier, and I already saw many extra tasks to crunch into my day.
I’ll try to make today a great day, hope you do the same.
Happy Spring everyone! We are still freezing here in my city in Canada, but last week I saw the first signs of spring while visiting New York City. Those tiny purple flowers on the ground made me smile.
Tanka Tuesday this week is a theme prompt: Fire and Water, below is my poem where I’ve chosen sunshine for fire and icy for water. Hope you enjoy it!
midday early spring
sunshine warming up my face
the ground still icy
mixed feelings, blending moments
losing the mind between thoughts
You were born with wings, why prefer to crawl through life?
Recently I’ve joined an art page on IG. It was great to explore a little bit of creativity using images and quotes. The top page was inspired by one of Rumi’s quotes. His quotes/poems are always so peaceful. The image I’ve chosen shows the lightness of the feathers and the happiness in the woman’s smile. It reminds me of freedom and the butterfly represents transformation, changes we need to work on to adapt our minds and environment towards freedom.
Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher.
No better teacher than Nature. I used to say that doing nothing by a lake is great, but now I say that being by a lake is an act of self-care, so I’m taking care of myself when I’m by a lake.
Green means spring/summer time here in Canada. We have bare trees and greyness from November to March, so when the green buds start to show up it is a sign of warm weather on the way. 😊
blue and yellow blast
i'm lost in a field of dreams
edge of the abyss
i look at my hands
the tiny emerald ring
roots me to the earth
it's time to grow and renew
the grass dancing with the breeze
Is anyone else feeling at the edge of the abyss? This winter has been so long and the creativity muse has left. Finally, this week the outdoors grey is giving some space for the sunshine and I’m starting to reclaim my creativity.
Tanka Tuesday this week is colours of the rainbow, green. My poem, consisting of a haiku and a tanka, intentionally doesn’t have the word green in it, but it has ‘green’ all over it. Hope you enjoy it!
