Once More (Poem)

Entombed in a colorless stupor
Blind to what her spark was for
Hold fast, bold lantern – cradle long that floor
Alas my cold past beckons once more

Varied (Haiga)

For Colleen’s weekly challenge, using synonyms of her prompt words Influence & Perception, here is a water/rocks watercolor study I did to make a Haiga with Stir & Grasp.

Haiga:

Senryu:

stirred against the stream
faith sways - so often varied
grasping for belief

I, Ego (Poem)

I find my injured ego revolting
Insistently boisterous and shining
Ignoring lesser creatures’ complaints
Infused, injected, id super-plated
It’s an irritatingly simple truth
Idly obscuring others from view
Indifference masks over cries for help
I am only interested in self

The Future of My Blog

I can safely say that it isn’t easy having a free WordPress account, there are many things I would like to do better. It is easier to use than my old writing.com account and the user groups are wonderfully active.

Don’t worry, I’m not going anywhere.

But there will be things I have to do to keep the site working for me. One of the things that is hard to live with for me is limited storage size. My plan to overcome this is to archive my older posts and consolidate them into pages, rather than keeping them in post form. This will keep my media folder lean and give me enough room to keep posting more of my artwork and found photos. I really am not a fan of doing this because it breaks any re-posts or links that others may have, but I couldn’t think of any other way to handle this.

So here it goes, I’ve started collecting my older posts together, and I think each year I will continue this trend:
