Do you write poetry, or prose?
Orchids, wild and free
Waving through the longest grass
Come and play with me
Blushing tenderly in pink
Or virginal, white
Unfurling, day after day
Swirling in beauty
It’s funny how this blogging world changes you, and opens your eyes to new things. I never used to carry a camera, except on holiday (with pretty dire results). But, needing to liven up my dull pages, I started taking photographs. Now I find it hard to walk past a blade of grass without wondering if it will make a good composition! I exaggerate- but it’s not far from the truth.
It’s good to know that I have an imagination, and that with just a little persuasion from friends, I can learn to use it. So now I’m tiptoeing into the world of Haiku, to see what I can find.
Sultry, smiling poppy
Teasing with her flirty skirt
Stamping a tango!
The storm clouds have descended this morning. What better time to practise a new skill? There’s so much inspiration out there.
I’m linking this morning to Lucile de Godoy at Bridging Lacunas. If you don’t know her, you’re in for a treat. And, of course, you’ll find me on Six Word Saturday. It’s my Saturday morning home.
Ha, you turned into a poet while I was away 🙂 And a brilliant one at that! Love the sultry poppy temptress….more please Jo 🙂
Funny how bits of poetry follow you sometimes. It’s never been my thing but I was glad so many people liked my dipping a toe in the water. 🙂 Our community is nothing if not encouraging, is it? 🙂
Jo, stunning images …. I love the poppies!!! Very powerful flower and it’s my favorite summer flower. Truly lovely post, girlfriend. What I don’t understand is the £3.00?????!!!! I’m pleased that I cost you something *laughing
I paid £3.00 for a bunch of peonies from Aldi 🙂 🙂
Okay … now I understand!!! Here I would pay about the double for ONE!
😦 😦 I don’t suppose they will travel!
No …. think they are far too delicate. Lidl and Aldi never have flowers like that .. their roses stands forever.

Forgot to say thank you! 🙂
What a post. You’ve excelled yourself with photos, offered me orchids and written some spectacular distinctive haiku. My favourites are the poppy and the peony one. More please! I’m astonished that photography came after blogging. It seems your native habitat!
You’re always much too kind to me! My natural habitat is probably on a beach somewhere. Today was spent on the cliffs at Whitby- another of my favourite places. 🙂 And I know nothing about photography- only what I like! Very self-indulgent 🙂
Me too. The whole blogging thing is total self-indulgence for me.

gorgeous gallery of flowers, Jo! i love it! 🙂 blogging certainly brings out hidden talents sometimes surprising oneself. and the online friends you gain are priceless, too 🙂
So many friends, LolaWi! That part is lovely. Thank you 🙂
I love the poppies! THey are a favorite flower. I have a very similar history with photography, Jo. I didn’t start taking photos as I do now until the blog! And probably not until I’d been at it about year. Now, I take photos and keep them “on hand” for a time when maybe I’m stumped and not sure what to share. I’ll go back through photos and that helps me every time. Now haiku? That’s an impressive “step up” and I think you’re off to a very good start. 🙂
It might be a sideways step, Debbie. I should probably concentrate on improving my photography and my sadly lacking IT skills 😦 Lovely to see you! I’m just completing this week’s walk (online) and then I’ll be off walking for real 🙂 🙂 Take care and have a happy week!
