Wishing you all much health, happiness and joy in 2020.
I have a good feeling about the coming year and I expect it will be much better than 2019. It’s been a wonderful break over the holiday period spent with my hubby and two daughters. I have many exciting things to look forward to in 2020 including the forthcoming release of two books: My YA fantasy: The Curse of Time Book 2 Golden Healer (which has and continues to be such hard work and a definite challenge) phew! And a book of poetry and prose which I am currently working on. Title to be revealed soon!
This week for Ronovan Writes Haiku Prompt Challenge I’m going to share with you some photos of myself and my family that I took on the 1st of January just before the fireworks were scheduled to be set off the award winning pier at Cromer. If you managed to see my previous post you will have seen that we are taking a short New Year’s break in Cromer. https://mjmallon.com/2015/12/31/happy-new-year-2/
The photo above is of one of the finale fireworks, isn’t it absolutely wonderful?
Here we are huddled together trying to keep warm, we stopped for a quick hot chocolate, just before the display.
The fireworks were spectacular, and my only regret is that I didn’t have a good enough camera to do justice to their beauty but nevertheless here they are in all their wonderment:
I just loved how this one turned out, to me it looks like a pretty present with a sparkling lid, and the one immediately after it resembles some kind of beautiful sea creature.
And this particular fellow is an explosion of flowers.
And this the biggest fizzing lollipop you are ever going to see!
As to this one, it looks like a giant creepy crawly to me!! What do you reckon?
They were all so amazing that they inspired me to write a haiku with them in mind:
A New Year Divine
A New Year divine,
So sublime the heavens smile!
Fireworks in motion.
Followed by a Tanka:
A pretty present
All wrapped in shimmering light
Perhaps it is real?
A momentary delight
Sending our senses reeling.
A tanka consists of 5 lines and 31 syllables.
Each line has a set number of syllables see below:
This is the view from our holiday apartment in Cromer, yesterday we arrived to a lovely surprise, a free bottle of Prosecco, as well as some chocolate biscuits and tea and coffee!! As you can see the sky is blue and so is the sea in the distance. I’m looking forward to going out with the family later to explore the surrounding area.
We went on a search for a Fish and Chip shop, and eventually found one in Sheringham.
After a tour around we arrived back at Cromer and went for a walk down to the pier.
Then on the way back to the apartment we popped into Cromer church and I had this spooky feeling that we might get locked in. Sure enough we nearly did get locked in, as we were leaving a young man arrived and began locking up! I said to my husband what would have happened if he hadn’t noticed we were there? Perhaps we would have spent New Year’s Eve in the church (our daughters were back at the apartment. ) He replied that he always fancied a night in a church, particularly on New Year’s Eve! That thought didn’t appeal to me !
Tomorrow there are to be fireworks in the early evening in Cromer, what a wonderful way to welcome the New Year in. Lucky residents of Cromer!! How are you spending New Year?
Have a very Happy New Year, thanks for all your support and encouragement following, commenting and liking posts on Kyrosmagica, it means so much to me.
