This post was inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge theme: Alphabet .

Letters of various fonts are found in many places. Today’s trip to a local craft store revealed a showcase of alphabet art. I was tempted to buy a few for future gifts!

In the meantime, while I ponder their purchase I returned to check out my photos for a picture that would fit this prompt. I decided on this one. It works for me!




Road sign?

There has been a lot of talk about green the past few days. March 17 will bring out the green in many, regardless of heritage or citizenship. Best to all who are celebrating.

With St. Patrick’s Day in mind, perhaps, responding to a poetry prompt at The Poetry Park site, led me in a colourful direction. This prompt invited responders to use a half-dozen words in a poem format of choice, so here is what I wrote.


a traveler trampled the undergrowth

all bent over beneath his shoes


wet with morning dew

he searched through the green shamrocks

‘til he found one with leaves of four


gently he snapped the stem

then pocketed this symbol of hope for the ages

as he set out on the road

in a new direction

once again
