Friday Shoot-Out: Water, Lakes, Streams


This week's FSO assignment is water, lakes, and streams, suggested by Nicole Howard.  Being a Cancer, I love water in all its many forms!  Below, I included some lakes, one ocean, and some ice.  The ice in the drain against the gray looked interesting to me which is why I took the picture.  I hope you enjoy my photos!!

Friday Shoot Out: Rocks Large and Small


The topic for friday shoot out is rocks large and small, suggested by ChefE.  This topic is such a great idea.  I was just thinking the other day how nature has some beautiful art.  Rocks are a great example.  They come in such a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors creating some amazing patterns.  Here are some shots I took just for the pattern aspect.
Below is a Colorado mountain.


And here are some of my favorite creatures near rocks.

Hope you enjoyed!!

Haikubones: Radiant

The prompt from haikubones is radiant.


Chakras vibrate in
a dance of color and light,
she slides down radiance.

One Single Impression: Oubliette

The prompt from onesingleimpression is oubliette.



Love is Not A Blue Sky

She liked his Romeo eyes,
so tried to be a soft Juliette.
In her blood, hearts rise,
but how real is a mystery yet.

She thinks about amber skies,
milky clouds in a creamy sunset;
too young for indigo sighs
that mask the broken lovers fret.

With you, I'll gently break these ties,
sing a new song, see what I get.
I know the grey, dingy cries
that echo from this oubliette.

One Single Impression: Icarus

The prompt from onesingleimpression is Icarus. 

The long morning stretched
itself over the Earth,
a thin layer of heat and fire.

How cool the ocean
which reached up its
arms to brush the sky.

Don't don't don't
Daedalus whispers
in his son's ears;
moderation, my boy.

Those words
hung in the air
as Icarus rose
to taste fire.

Water cools and welcomes
into its deadly heaven.

Haiku Bones: Quietly

The prompt from haiku bones is quietly.



Night slips from the sky;
under cover, soft from sleep,
rain comes quietly.

Friday Shoot-Out: Menus

This week's topic is menus.  I kind of took creative license on this one.  I have included things that might be on a menu.  For instance, for my cat Magnum, the plants are often on his "menu".

This is me standing by "Cheers" in Boston.
Tomatoes are one of my favorite menu items.

This guy may end up on a menu.

Eggs, anyone?

Hope you enjoyed my interpretation!
