yearning haiku

A nice light “dusting” will do .๐Ÿ˜Š

It’s been raining on and off, for days, here on Vancouver Island.

๐ŸŽ„ A White Christmas would be so nice!๐ŸŽ„

This photo and haiku is from years ago, when we lived in Interior BC.ย 

How has your weather been?

Are you expecting a White Christmas?

Gorgeous Weather and a Haiku

hunch brought to mind

We’ve been having some beautiful warm days, here on Vancouver Island, after a lot of rain.

On days like these, it makes me feel happy just to gaze up at the skies!

This morning, this haiku also came to mind.

I’m facing some time at the dentist this afternoon (minor repairs!) so I need all the cheering up I can find.๐Ÿ˜

Hope you are enjoying a great day, wherever you are.

๐ŸŒพHugs and Happy Week.๐Ÿฆ

The Autumn Leaves (haiku, movie and song) :-)

This is a reblog of an autumn post (from 2015) that I hope you enjoy.

A song and a movie that still comes to mind, this time of year. So haunting and beautiful.

I hope you enjoy my haiku and photo too.๐Ÿ˜Š

The unpacking continues here.ย We have now given away over 120 boxes of clothing, household items,books… to charity, so slowly but surely, making progress.

And today, we are setting up my office complete with new laptop and printer, yipee!

๐Ÿ๐ŸŒพ Happy Week and Happy Autumn!๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

My Poetic Path

I โ™ฅย movies from the 40s and 50s!

We were watching a Joan Crawford movie last night: Humoresque (so sad but wonderful) and this haiku and archive post came to mind.ย 

The Autumn Leaves is a song that I often have running through my mind, especially this time of year. As I mention in this post, it was also a Nat King Cole tune, that my beloved Grandma cherished.

And the movie of the same name is also one that I have never forgotten.Quite a โ€œracyโ€ film for its time (1956) and definitely with some disturbing content.

But, if you are a fan of Joan Crawford and/or movies from the 40s/50s like I am, do check this one out.

It also features a young and oh, so handsome Cliff Robertson. ย Also starring,ย Lorne Greene in a role that is far removed from his later, fatherlyโ€ฆ

Calling All Haiku Poets and Photographers!!

glossy green heads

I’ve been looking for some prompt blogs to participate at again, here at WP. One of my favorite blog pursuits, when I was blogging here previously, years ago.

Unfortunately, it’s been “slim pickings” so far, finding the right fit.

I don’t want to be burdened and bored by too many ” rules” such as: exact word counts, only one day to post, etc…

I thought if there was enough interest, I would start hosting weekend prompt challenges again,here at My Poetic Path.

My idea: a haiku OR photo prompt challenge OR combination of both (as in my photo with haiku above).

Please leave a comment if this sounds appealing, and something you would regularly consider participating in.

If there is enough comments showing an interest in participating, I’ll start offering prompts here, very soon.ย 

๐Ÿ˜ŠHAPPY WEEK!๐Ÿ˜Š
