FOTD – Tulips

First tulips of 2019

Good Morning! Happy Friday!

Tulips season is starting here in my part of the world. Of course, not yet in my garden, but at least at the grocery stores.

Tulips are my favorite spring flowers, I never get tired of photographing them.

Earth laughs in flowers

Tanka Tuesday: Snowing

Colleen has added another form of poetry to the challenge, Haiga! A combination of poetry and image. I love it because I can incorporate 2 of my favorite forms of creative together: photography and poetry.

Haiga is sometimes called observational poetry because it contains an image with either a haiku or senryu written on it or near it.  

Colleen Chesebro

Being the first Tuesday of the month, we get to choose our own words for the challenge, I’ve chosen Earth and Soul.

Flakes kissing the Earth 
A moment to be treasured
Softness for the Soul

Hope you enjoy my first Haiga, and if you want to know more about it, please check Colleen’s post here.

Sunday Stills: Earth’s fire

my first tulips of 2019

I enjoyed so much to join Sunday Stills with Hugh these last 2 Sundays, that I decided to keep up with Terri’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge.

Today’s theme is Fire.

The first thing that came to my mind was the Earth’s fire, the Earth core where the temperature is similar to the temperature in the surface of the sun, around 6000 Celsius! It isn’t a fire in there, but a metal combination that makes the heat.

We are in the middle of the winter in the North Hemisphere, soon the spring will spring, a sign that the Earth is alive and the fire still keeps burning.

Have a great Sunday!

8 Ways to Uplift Your Energy

Good Morning! It’s a grey morning here in my part of the world, I’m so glad this post was on my feed this morning. Generally, I don’t reblog posts, but this one I have to share with you just in case you need a little bit of energy this weekend.

Story of a Journey

In Energy: Where Does It Come From? we understood how important it is to be connected to our inner energy 🙂 In fact, when our heart is not completely open to receive it, we can be influenced much more easily by our surroundings.
How can we limit being drained by certain situations or people? How can we keep our energy level high and live a joyful life? Read on to find some ideas 🙂

Nurturing Thursday: Write

You can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.
Jodi Picoult

After many months on and off with my writing, finally, I’m getting back to it. I had mixed feelings about it and my critical voice was speaking aloud.

I don’t know what I was afraid of, since I write for myself, to put on the pages what needs to come out of my mind, to clear my ideas, in general, to make sense of myself. It’s not that I’ll publish it or defense a thesis about it. It’s more a kind of lone therapy.

Well, my mind is playing many tricks recently, some of them dangerous, so it’s better to put everything clear on the paper and don’t let these tricks take over.

Tanka Tuesday: Storm

the storm is coming
unhurried willing moment
lightness in the air
letting go of any task
only being here and now

Joining Colleen’s poetry challenge. The words for this week are slow and work. We can use synonyms only.

I took this photo yesterday when leaving work, a storm was approaching and everyone was in hurry to get back home. The moment was so precious, I felt the lightness in the air, I took my time, slowly savoring the moment, step by step, taking photos, no hurry.
