Leaves on the Snow

leaves dance on the wind
celebrating with the snow
winter’s scattered art

BIRTHDAYS

measuring time—
twenty-five or thirty-some years
yet to go … or less
looking at past records
of family births and deaths

my dad felt a hundred years
was too long to stick around for
my mother thought that ninety-four
was quite a bit too short
neither was pleased

don’t know what I’ll think
when my world and I transform
when time becomes eternity
maybe I’ll notice, or perhaps I’ll
forget what came before

On the day

heavy frost on the cotoneaster branches
Frosty Branches

fresh breath of cold
sunlight on frosted branches
silent song

Some distance between posts

During September and October, I was taking a six-week photography workshop online from Andy Ilachinski via Shanti Arts. Didn’t get in much off-topic writing during that time. Quite absorbing.

Finding Everyday Inspiration, Day 10: Let the Scene Write Itself

I quietly observe the world around me through the eye of the camera, more often than not.

Taking It Easy

So far, we’ve found inspiration from our own experiences, images, words, and more. Today, let’s quietly observe the world around us and write about what we see.
