This week Colleen’s Poetry challenge is Poet’s choice.
You know how much I love photography, it’s a form of expression for me. I try to show my feeling through my clicks. The same in relation to writing poems. I love it when I can put both together: photography and poems.
I took this photo few weeks ago. Hubby and I were strolling by a lake nearby and we saw this gorgeous swan in another side of the lake, they never came close before, so we didn’t expect when he/she started to swim towards us. It was a lovely surprise! We were so happy, like kids when receiving a new toy. We took photos and recorded this gorgeous bird. We really enjoyed that moment.
A simple flapping The pure essence of freedom Showing us the path
I had a few weeks of vacation, I went to the beach and enjoy each moment of each. I was surprised when I got home and saw how my garden was blooming, flowers and butterflies everywhere. It’s nice to be back and to see that I don’t need to travel far to have beauty around me. But, of course, I could do with few weeks at the beach every couple of weeks 🙂
Joining Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday, today words are Nature and Clean, synonyms only, so I used Essence and Simple in a Haiga (Haiku + Photo).
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.
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.
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.
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.
