After a week of unusually hot weather for an English maytime, when I saw today's Edward Hopper prompt from Tess at Mag 119, with its lingering, golden warmth,  I couldn't wait to cool it!  I've also slewed this section of the image to make the viewer feel small, underlining the fact that we are all at the mercy of the elements.

And here's the shadorma I wrote to complete the picture.- if you see what I mean!

Burning orb
retreats as moonlight
douses sun,
silvers sky,
and revives flagging spirits.
The world breathes easy.

Thanks To Beccs

My Jelly Bean poem has at last met its match in this delightful illustration by Beccy Blake. Just shows what working in tandem can do! I hope we can produce more of the same...Fingers crossed, eh?

Behind The Mask

We are all players
wearing masks. Both light and dark
combine for balance.

Written for Haiku Heights , where the prompt was 'Mask'.

The stream
unravels views
till imagination
ripples across the mind's canvas,

in gaudy dance,
sway to silent music
sung by invisible makers
of songs.

And time
flows between worlds,
linking past and present,
fact and fantasy; old and new,

Written and created in response to Mag #116, also linked to dVerse  and Open Link Monday on IGWRT

Clouds Have More Than Silver Linings

Imac suggested I take a look here at his clouds - and the one above  soon turned into this...

 And finally this....
I told Imac his photo was so bright, I had to pull the blinds to look at it! He said he hoped I'd post it some time - so now I have, with many thanks for his kind permission to do so.

Another Attack Of The Blues

Inspired by Mag #115, where Tess gave us an image by Manu Pombrol - guess you could say it blew my mind- or at least, the top of my head off! :)
