Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge #26

  Colleen’s prompt words this week are : Earth and Water. I decided to stick with the Tanka form, but you can write either a Tanka, Haiku or a Haibun. Very saddened to hear about the terrorist atrocity in London’s Westminster this Wednesday. So my Tanka this week reflects that mood.   Here’s the link to Colleen’s challenge: https://colleenchesebro.com/2017/03/21/colleens-weekly-poetry-challenge-26-earth-water Let’s hope that the […]

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge – Gap

This silver dude who I came across in Covent Garden seemed like the obvious choice for Hugh’s Challenge this week which was to – “take a photo of a gap. It could be a gap between two buildings or maybe that gap in your garden fence. Maybe there’s a gap that your pet dog squeezes through or a gap that a child has between two of their teeth.” Well he certainly can hold his own in a gap, no doubt about that one! Quite amazing perhaps he’s blessed with a silver sliver of magic…. Want to join the fun? Here’s what you need to do. 1. Take or choose a photo that you’ve taken which shows a gap in it.  2. Create a new post on your blog entitled “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 19 – “Gap” 3. Add the photo(s) you have taken to the post and tell us a little about what you are showing. 4. Create a pingback to this post or leave a link to your post in the comments section below so that other participants can view the post. Do pop over to Hugh’s blog : http://hughsviewsandnews.com/2016/03/29/hughs-weekly-photography-challenge-week-19-gap/ Hope you liked those amazing silver gaps of wonderment! Bye for now, Marje @ Kyrosmagica xx

Best decade of my life.” Sacha sniffed. “I wasn’t even born…
