blue – haiga

blue immensity
from the skies to the oceans
you have all my heart
wondering what is hidden
beyond treasures and despair

it’s time for tanka tuesday, our own choice of words, for today i’ve chosen heart and despair.

i took this photo last week, the sky was so blue, no clouds around. i was waiting outdoors for my son to give me a ride and i was wondering what is beyond all this blue. not about the universe, planets, atmosphere and stuff, but about the mystery, the magic, what is there that we can’t see?

i wasn’t sure if it is appropriate to make a haiga using a tanka, instead a haiku, but i had more words and it wouldn’t fit as haiku, they needed to be written.

hope you have a great day!

go bananas

it’s all white out there, snowing again! it’s pretty but it’s time for the winter go away and make space for spring.

sunday stills today is tropical, and i go with bananas! i got these ones yesterday at the grocery store, they are from Colombia and are delicious.

it’s so great that with the harsh winter we can still taste the wonderful fruits from all around the world.

have a lovely sunday!

Nurt Thurs – Becoming

For me, becoming isn’t about arriving somewhere or achieving a certain aim. I see it instead as forward motion, a means of evolving, a way to reach continuously toward a better self. The journey doesn’t end.

If you don’t get out there and define yourself, you’ll be quickly and inaccurately defined by others.

Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own.

Michelle Obama

Here are only three passages of this lovely book, so many to choose from.

It’s an easy reading, and what impressed me is the simplicity of it. Her words feel like she is having a cup of tea in my kitchen telling me her stories.

I was thought if I could choose authors to have a dinner with, I’d pick Virginia Woolf and Emily Dickinson, two strong women, each one fighting their own battles, one in the 1800s, another in the 1900s. Now for sure, I’m adding Michelle Obama to the list to represent the 2000s. It would be a wonderful dinner.

sweet love

spring has sprung in my kitchen! i’m in love with the colours of these tulips. i’m not sure if one word only could define this mix of colours, maybe: soft, sweet, tender…

true colours, no filter applied

“sweet spring is your

time is my time is our

time for springtime is lovetime

and viva sweet love”

E. e. cummings

spring has sprung outdoors as well, i noticed these tiny tulips sprouting during a long walk by the river in the first day of spring, you can read about it here.

hoping spring (or autumn’s magic) has sprung to you too.

have a great sunday!
