Ben’s world 28/03/2018

I love Ben the dog’s poetry and was thrilled to find that his favorite thing to do last week was to write a poem for my Tanka Tuesday Challenge. That, Ben. He’s a darling. ❤

Mucky Boots and Flawless Paws

Hello,

how lovely of you to visit me, thank you. This is a snap shot of my world in response to the questions posed in Cee’s weekly ‘Share Your World

Generations

Reena gives us an excellent example of a “Garland Cinquain.” See how her words tell the story of the image with each of her cinquain poems? Well done. I love it! ❤

Honoring a Woman with a New Book

Annette has released a new book of Haiku poetry! I have to share because the fairy on the cover is one of my favorite drawings by her sister. Have a peek and enjoy Annette’s poetry. ❤

Why choose today? Because Lorraine drew the COVER ART!  Yes, my amazingly talented sister gave me permission to use this drawing and I wanted to celebrate her gift as well as the gift of her life at the same time. Thanks Sis!
