On the Bridge

meet me on the bridge where the chasm between us no longer divides


WPC: Solitary Watcher

lonely gaze watches abandoned to solitude awaiting friendship This post is for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. This week's prompt is solitude.

Late Bloomer

willful late bloomer shrouded by chill apathy awaiting sun's touch I had intended to share my November Changing Seasons post today, but, as it's getting late here and it's still not ready to go, I thought I'd share one of the pictures I took during November instead. The haiku was written in my notepad with somewhat frozen fingers while I was...

The pictures were taken in Newlyn, the fishing village in Cornwall that we stayed in during our recent  holiday. Newlyn harbour has been in use since at least 1435,... Continue Reading →

WPC: Harmony

This post is for the Weekly Photo Challenge. This week's theme is harmony. Exultant voice trills Joining triumphant chorus Harmony embraced I encountered this incredibly tame robin when I was down at the stream last week. He flew from branch to branch in the tree above the bench where I like to stop to write, singing... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

This post is in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Change. Don golden garments Dance through the spiralling year Winter soon will come I love this time of year - as summer shifts into autumn, greens fading into gold. With this week's theme I thought I'd capture that change in progress. I hope you like them.
