My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.


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. 



Friday Funnies! What Do You Think? ;-)

jan 13 004

As many of you already know, I hosted a prompt blog: Woven Dreams, during 2013. I gave it up after a few months,  as I just didn’t have time to keep up with a fourth blog.

But since that time, I’ve had quite a few readers/participants mention that they miss the prompts we shared over at Woven Dreams. It got me thinking about what I could do for another prompt series, without actually having another blog.

Here goes:

I’m considering having a Friday prompt series, here at My Poetic Path called:

Friday Funnies!

I’d be keeping it simple (and cost free- no Mr. Linky) this time.

Participants would share something funny at their blog:

A photo, joke, limerick, short story, quote, sketch…

and would leave a link to their post in a comment here at My Poetic Path.

Easy peasy and not too time-consuming for me either. As you all know, hosting a blog can take up quite a bit of time. 😉

What do you think?

Would you be interested in participating at Friday Funnies! if I went ahead with this prompt series idea? 

If  there is enough interest from readers and I do decide to go ahead with Friday Funnies! it will be starting very soon, so check back if you’d like to participate.

We can all use more laughs, right?

And what better time to share and enjoy them, than the start of a new year. 🙂

In the meantime, I hope that this photo of:  Mr. Cheddar and his fab sock monkey pal, JJ brings a big smile your day! 😉

Haiku Reflections: A Walk in the Rain

for rainy days post

A haiku and photo I shared at my blog: Take A Happy Break (no longer active) a while back.

Thought it was perfect for this upcoming Sunday’s  prompt:

Rainy Days


over at Woven Dreams. 


This will be the last week for prompts at Woven Dreams. 😦

 I just don’t have time to host 4 blogs, with all my other current pursuits.

I’ll be keeping: Veggies, Yarns & Tails, My Poetic Path and My Real Life Reviews going though! 😉

Hosting and participating at Woven Dreams has been a real pleasure.

Thanks to everyone who participated each week.

I REALLY   reading all your posts each week!


Also sharing with the Festival of Flowers.

Share your summer floral photos; come join us! 🙂

Happy Weekend to All.


Haiku Reflections: Thoughts on a Windy Day

hunch brought to mind

We get very little wind, here in Interior BC. This past Monday around noon was an exception.

I stepped out on our back porch to take a photo of these amazing clouds.

The wind was strong and fresh. It felt so freeing that it made me smile. 🙂 

It also brought some good thoughts to mind, including a hunch I had been pondering.

A moment in time I’ll enjoy bringing to mind again!


Created for the August 11th Woven Dreams prompt: HUNCH

Also submitted for the WP Weekly Photo Challenge: CAREFREE

Hunch: “an intuitive reckoning”

 Find the perfect word.

When it all comes together.

In spite of some very hot temps. here in BC during July; it’s been for the most part, a very productive four weeks!

It’s magic when that perfect: word, phrase or sentence comes to mind, isn’t it? 🙂

Hope you’ve had a wonderful July too.

“Serendipity means a “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; a fortunate mistake. Specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful while not specifically searching for it. The word has been voted one of the ten English words hardest to translate in June 2004 by a British translation company.[1] However, due to its sociological use, the word has been exported into many other languages.”
