Colleen’s 2019 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 136 #Decadent

vintage-1149558_1280Sounds of jollity

carried on electric light,

pierce ivy shutters,

through twice glazed frames declaring

Neo-Georgian mockery

It is hard to find the words to describe the allure of the Goddess known as Marilyn Monroe. With the power to enthral all class of men from pauper to President, this woman, both a film and recording star, who today would probably be described as oversized,  still features in the dreams of many.

Doing Almost Nothing for the Environment

The real meaning of enlightenment

the moon is rising...

Last weekend, firing up the Mountfield, I took aim and cut as graceful an arc as I could with a mower having a fixed wheel on each corner. We are “wilding” part of our front lawn and I was striking the dividing line.

It’s a trend. Now that we’ve started, we notice quite a few gardens have done it, many with an advanced growth of red poppies, cornflowers, and daisies. I expect there are other wild plants in there too though too short and too far away to see.

To speed things along, ready seeded turf can be laid, or you can sow wildflower mixtures from a seed packet. It’s much more interesting to watch how things develop by nature, I think, though there is a temptation to give it a helping hand. Of course, some intervention is necessary to stop the dominant weeds taking over, like dandelions. Though it…

Weekend Writing Prompt #106 – Zodiac

wk-106-zodiac

The creatures of the earth  were offered to the maiden. A lion, bull, goat, ram, scorpion, crab, fish from the sea.  Chosen twins held the scales, as the water-bearer performed her ritual. The archer, bow in hand stood guard over the ancient ceremony.

Heart

Simply put but oh. so true.

Present Tense in Europe

When one feels good or when misunderstood
The heart cries more than the eyes ever could!

Thursday photo prompt: Rooted #writephoto #Tanka

x-ray-207

Clad in matching tones

lovers fixed in cold embrace

MY FURRY FRIEND “BIG RED”

Another sombre Sunday story to remind us of human ignorance and arrogance.

Welcome to Tofino Photography

20160504-2Z6A0396

Last Friday I was on my way out to camp for a few days when a friend told me about a bear I’ve known for years. “Big Red” is the largest male bear out there. Nobody messed with “Big Red”!

I looked back into my archives to see how long I’ve known him? About 8 years as it turns out. I called him “Big Red” because of his rear end being reddish in colour. When bears get mange their hair falls out and when the new hair grows back in for some reason its a reddish colour.

“Big Red” was unusual,he would stop and stare at you like a human It was unnerving to be honest! I first met him years ago up in Fortune Channel. Most of the bears are there because of the crabs. After a year of being there he decided to move to quieter regions. It…

life, ephemeral,

from the corner of my eye

the spectre sighted,

she drifts, part of the forest

and yet leave men’s minds doubting
