Waiting for Spring – A #Tanka

Welcome to my contribution to my weekly #Tanka Tuesday poetry challenge. This week, I tweaked the prompt word of “clouds” to “shroud,” and I left the word “spring.” Both words have many connotations. Depending on how you use your synonyms you can alter the meaning of your Tanka poetry in many […]

Awaiting Spring – A Haiku

The RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #94 words are: “Diamonds & Pearls.” The poetic opportunities presented by these two words are endless. The most logical assumption is that “diamonds and pearls” are a girl’s best friend! At least we can all hope. For me, it is really hard not […]

Ephemeral Fairy Swamp

Fairy Swamp is changing quickly here in Pensacola, Florida, as emerald leaves frame this image in time.  The bright green leaves of spring will soon give way to the cool darkness of the summer swamp.  The leaves and vines will soon be thick, making it near impossible to see into […]

Fresh–The First Blooms of Spring

This week, The Daily Post Photo Challenge asks us to portray something “fresh.”  Spring has burst forth here in Pensacola, Florida in a variety of ways from the emerald green grass of our lawns to the flowering trees in bloom.  Azaleas are ablaze with color.  Everywhere the fragrance of ‘new’ […]

One Word Photo Challenge–Melon

Jennifer Nichol Wells and I are loving the One Word Photo Challenge with the color this week: melon!  Spring has finally arrived in Florida! Melon This melon color is a tab more pink than we normally think of a melon color, although I do have an azalea that is close […]

The Clinic-Photo Rehab 21

Lucile De Godoy’s Photo Rehab is the perfect place for me to share my photos of my creative room garden.  The violets and Christmas/Easter Cactus burst forth this morning in glorious bloom after several days of dark and cold here in Pensacola, Florida. The colors are vibrant and intense and […]

One Word Photo Challenge–Strawberry

Jennifer Nichole Wells One Word Photo color for the week is: strawberry! Strawberry is one of my favorite shades of pink for flowers in the garden.  The deep rosy shade brightens even the dullest of days. Here are some azaleas in a strawberry color from last spring.  I always look […]

Pink Fairy Slippers

The first sign of spring – as pink fairy slippers bloom, winter grieves the cold. I had a lovely walk this morning.  The air was crisp and laden with moisture from the approaching rain.  Not far from Fairy Swamp were these delicate tiny, pink blooms hanging from the bushes.  I […]

  It’s Sunday and that means it is time for the Unique Art Chic Weekly Word Snap Challenge, hosted by the lovely, Amanda!  Is anybody ready for spring?  I know I am!  I could not believe how spectacular the new spring grasses were growing alongside the road.  My haiku is […]
