A Defensive Dinner

Eating violet
Spiked globes of thistle, a
Defensive dinner

I wrote this haiku tonight to go with this photo of purple artichokes that I brought home in February. I don’t know why Ive waited so long been to write about this pretty picture. A delayed but delightful pairing?

This post is the ninth in what I hope to be a series of 30 posts in honor of NaBloPoMo.

My Creature Feature

Childlike fear returns
Watching The Unkown Terror
My Creature Feature
Dangling Modifier by Steph Abbott

I created this image using Art Rage and published it with Dangerous Modifiers a few years ago. Tonight, I wrote this haiku in response to this prompt: “What is my worst fear?” while watching The West Wing. This post is the sixth in what I hope to be a series of 30 posts in honor of NaBloPoMo.

Looking for flowers

Looking for flowers
Stepping up to, around
Conflict to find peace
Snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus)

I snapped this photo of flowers along my path today. Tonight, I wrote this haiku in response to this prompt: “What kinds of situations do I avoid?” It is the fifth in what I hope to be a series of 30 posts in honor of NaBloPoMo.

Surreal Agave

Squatting in rosettes
She prickles on surreal land
A scape to bloom bright

Wait, Before you Go (Again)

Wait, before you go

Savor friends and sip of stress

Become family

About this post:

The GIF photo is from a cup of coffee I had with a friend this morning.

The illustration and haiku are from a post in 2014. SeeWait, Before You Go.” This content was also reblogged in 2017. SeeWait, Before You Go, #WritingBravely.

Today, have reblogged this haiku (again), because I am exhausted. Mondays can be stressful, yes? I appreciate your understanding.

Also, I found it to be conventient for today’s #NaBloPoMo18 prompt: “Imagine you and I have met for a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine). What would you tell me if we were having a cup of coffee?” courtesy of the Reticulated Redhead.

If we were having coffee, I might recite this haiku…

Wait, before you go
Savor friends and sip of stress
Become family

I created the image shown above for a post a few years ago. SeeWait, Before You Go.”

Today, I am reblogging content I created years ago, because I am sick and tired. Seriously, I am not feeling well, and it is getting late. I have to get up early tomorrow for work. And, I doubt my readers will notice the redundancy. I appreciate your understanding.

I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words #6. Day 7 of the Write Tribe Festival of Words #6 and today’s prompt is: Day 7 (11 Aug/Fri) – ‘If we were having coffee…….’

This is the last day of the festival and writing challenge. I may not post for a while, so in the meantime, heed my words…

Wait, before you go, write bravely.
