Ten Word Story: Cavernous Potato Hunger

This week I’ve been inspired by Esther Newton’s ten word story challenge to write a story with the words Potato and Friday, she originally posted this challenge on the 2nd of April. https://esthernewtonblog.wordpress.com/2015/04/02/5373/ So apologies for being so slow on the uptake Esther. I’m kind of behind on the date of the challenge but never mind. I had a go at this one anyway. Here […]

My Friday Post: Sea Urchins Ouch!

This guys waving at you and that’s ok, he’s quite beautiful from afar but you sure don’t want to get up close and personal and you definitely don’t want to stand on him. He’s a sea urchin, also archaically known as a sea hedgehog. You can see the resemblance. But this guy’s kind of cute. This hedgehog really is a bit […]

My Friday Image: Juniper Artland Sculpture, Firmament by Anthony Gormley

   Firmament by Antony Gormley Exposure 2010   This litte poetic ditty was inspired by this wonderful sculpture which I had the pleasure of seeing in all its splendour at Juniper Artland, Wilkieston, Scotland. You may remember that I mentioned this wonderful inspiring Artland before in a much earlier blog post, on the 15th of June 2014. The Puzzle of Unforgiving Turf Black space, a jigsaw of blue, confusing skies. A giant piece of white mystifying lies, Still we twist,  baffle,  and turn, While blackened steel pieces confuse and burn. My fingers decipher thoughts, raw and aching, Questioning layers of paint work mercilessly flaking, I  turn to discern  the last bewildering step, I piece the puzzle, too late, the enigma lies cold and wet. I trip, and fall, unravel, flip an ankle, In scattered pieces I confusingly entangle, But there’s no bewildering cuddle, Just a gap, no cushion, in air’s baffling puzzle. A pocket of relentless sky and bemused clouds, Blankets the confused sounds, As I fall in pieces, scattering, to the perplexed earth, Triumph hitting the newly solved, but, oh so, unforgiving turf!   © Marjorie Mallon 2015 – aka, Kyrosmagica. Words, and Photo, good or bad, are my very own! That was such fun!!!! Love poetry, just wish I was better at writing poems. Still, it’s nice to try. Please, if there any poets out there reading this, do give me feedback, I’m looking to improve 🙂 Links: https://www.jupiterartland.org/ http://www.antonygormley.com/ Unauthorized use and/or duplication of all copyrighted material in this blog without permission from this blog’s author is strictly prohibited.

My Friday Winter Images

A  yellow leaf sitting on a bed of sparkling snow. Sometimes the most beautiful images are just so simple. It’s the Fifth of December who could possibly believe it, where does time go? I’m sure Father Christmas leaps into the year earlier every winter and steals a bit of time so that he can get on with his job. Cheeky fellow! […]

My Friday Image Antelope Canyon Arizona

Let me introduce you to Antelope Canyon. I’m totally captivated by these wonderful photos. The canyons are without doubt one of the most beautiful wonders of the world. I had fun arranging these images into an order, the top few are more shadowed, having less light filtering in than the last. They are all exquisite. Enjoy. Antelope Canyon is located near Page, […]
