World Poetry Day — March 21, 2016

World Poetry Day

I originally wrote this for last year but thought it should have another airing for those of you that missed it!

I love to write a  poem

About all kinds of stuff

The things that make me happy

Or to moan when things get tough!

There are many types of poem

From which to take your pick

A Haiku, sonnet or blank verse

Ode or Limerick

Some poems can be so funny

Others make you cry

Many are inspiring

So go and give one a try

I want to add my voice to others

In this unique display

Of poets coming together

For World Poetry Day!

TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Shadows — February 28, 2016

TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Shadows

Graduation - Shadow!

I found it quite tricky looking for shadows to take part in TJ household challenge prompt this week, so have had to use a bit of creative licence (ok cheat a bit)! Although I did find a shadow in one of my photos that was great to use, it is not exactly a household one!

Graduation day,

The dean awaits me on stage,

Don’t let me trip up! 

 

 

 

 

 

Ronovan’s Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #71 ‘Cover’ and ‘Colour.’ — November 16, 2015
Ronovan’s Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge 69: ‘Haiku’ & ‘Mind’ — November 2, 2015

Ronovan’s Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge 69: ‘Haiku’ & ‘Mind’

I decided that I had to still take part in Ronovan’s weekly Haiku challenge despite trying to participate in NaNoWriMo as I would get withdrawal symptoms otherwise!

The prompt words actually gave me a hard time this week!

Anyway, here is what I made of it:

My mind is tortured;

Crashing, swirling thoughts break through;

A Haiku is born

Tortured

TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Garden — October 25, 2015

TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Garden

TJ has given us ‘garden’ for this week’s Household Haiku Challenge, which you really must check out. His own haiku this week is brilliant!

Seeing as it is now well into autumn over here in England, my garden is looking a bit neglected, and there is not much to see. However, there is a little bit of colour, and I have played with the photo a bit trying to bring it to the forefront. (I am a total amateur at photography as you know, but am pleased with it)!

Anyway, on to the Haiku:

Untroubled by rain,

cosy in their purple capes

sweet peas hang in there!

I have taken TJ’s advice and am linking it to the Daily Post’s ‘Careful’ photo challenge.

Ronovan’s weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge: #67 ‘Cheer’ & ‘Call’ — October 19, 2015

Ronovan’s weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge: #67 ‘Cheer’ & ‘Call’

I am liking the words this week for Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge, which are ‘cheer’ and ‘call.’ I have taken a bit of a liberty with the ‘cheer’ part of the challenge and have taken it literally!

I decided that I would write my haiku about the changing colours of the trees in autumn.

Autumn pays a call

Yay, time for a new outfit!

Does orange suit me?

Autumn arrives

Tj’s Household Haiku Challenge – Eggs — October 17, 2015

Tj’s Household Haiku Challenge – Eggs

TJ has set quite a challenge this week, giving eggs as the prompt to use. His photo and Haiku were beautiful. (He always manages to make everything looks so special, even the humble egg)!

Mine, of course, has got an entirely different take on it than his!

Here goes:

Standing tall and proud

The egg, such a brave soldier

knows the end is near!

Tj’s Household Haiku Challenge: ‘Teacosy’ — October 10, 2015

Tj’s Household Haiku Challenge: ‘Teacosy’

Well, I have gone and done it this week! TJ has chosen ‘teacosy’ as the household item and has written a wonderful Haiku accompanied by a really fun teacosy.

I have just turned out my drawers (ooo er Missus), looking for my tea cosy. It’s gone! I had one from 20 years ago that was part of a whole range of tableware which I collected. I can’t even find an image it online, so, I will have find one that I like the look of instead! This one is very like the ones my nan used to knit.

A good cup of tea

Warm and cosy from the pot

Answer to all ills.

You’ve Either Got it or You Haven’t! — October 6, 2015

You’ve Either Got it or You Haven’t!

When I went out for a walk with Miss Hap on Saturday, it was a beautiful, sunny afternoon. As we passed the field she decided to show off her cartwheeling skills, and I said I would take a photo of her.

Actually I made her do a few so I could get a good shot!

When we got home and had a look, this was the best one I got!! I do try hard!
