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!

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!

sharing with sunday stills spring has sprung and FOTD.

happy first day of spring! it’s a good day to reflect on what matters, what we should keep up with, and what we should let go.

balance

not sure how I got here
influenced by others
of course
the vanity of having a Ph.D. degree
to understand the nature of beings
to find the cure
meetings and people
competitions and deadlines
hiding my feelings and not showing
weakness
perfection in each moment
Stop, breath and listen
looking for freedom
I isolate myself
solitude and silence
writing outside the lines
messing up
letting my feelings explode
between colours and paper clips
to find a balance
to breathe my true-self
next day I’ll be ready
a smile on my face
a word of encouragement
a surprise of a new result
observing the miracle
inside a cell
keeping my words and feelings
for later on
when they will lay down
on a piece of paper
