Weekends

029 Joining in Weekending with the lovely Karen over at Pumpkin Sunrise. This has been a long weekend and by that I don’t mean it’s dragged, quite the opposite…despite the extra day off today, it has flown!

There has been much pottering around the house, a visit to my dad’s, relaxing, reading, drawing {something I have really got into again, much to my delight!}, revision {my poor son, but he has 3 exams after the Spring break}, a visit to a food festival today, which was fantastic…oh the sights and smells. Plus, while there I purchased a lovely plant {in the photo} and had a delicious meal out with my wonderful son {unfortunately my husband has been working all weekend – poor man!}. There has been a lot of Stevie Wonder too…just love him!

All in all it’s been a really good weekend. How was yours?

Peony

Pink Peony

In May, the huge buds

tight-packed and filled with pink silk

burst and sing their song

A Haiku for my Sunday Poem. If you feel the urge to join me with a poem, then please do, I would love that!

Wishing you a good week ahead. Jane x

Bluebells

031

Through ancient woods

 we ventured

on well-trodden paths

dappled with sunlight;

 and either side

carpeted with bluebells,

ringing in May

without a  sound.

Sunday has officially become the day for poetry writing!

Wishing you a happy Sunday and a great weekend ahead, Jane.

The Monochrome Muse

Make a wish

I have been invited by my friend, Ellie, to join her new project, The Monochrome Muse, which you can check out here.

Now, I just love black and white photography, so when Ellie asked me to contribute, I jumped at the chance. There is just something so wonderful about black and white photographs, the nostalgic feelings they evoke, their timelessness and the fact that you are not distracted by colour and instead see the texture, light, tones and shapes, which can be truly magical.

I hope you will take a look and enjoy the lovely images posted over there and perhaps join us?

How will I forget?

Forget me not

He said I would forget him,

but how will I,

when he is there

in every shining star

and every blackbird’s song.

When I see him in every lovers kiss

and every golden leaf of autumn.

When I long for him in spring

as earth awakens

from winter’s slumber

and joy should fill my heart.

How will I forget?

~

Another little poem for Sunday evening…this could become a habit!

Wishing you well and hoping you are having a good weekend, Jane.
