Quadrille #35: Pepper


Cherry Delight

Pepper my mind

With spicy words

Splash of piquant

Poetic tang


Squirt of lemon

Comes out of nowhere

Too sour in taste

Take a break


Empty spaces collide

Peppered with thoughts

Creativity strikes


Thinking sweet aromas

Tossing word salad

Muse enticed

Adds cherry delight

Cee’s Black & White (Sepia) Photo Challenge: Lights (Manmade)

This was taken at a birthday celebration last year.  The candle light accentuated the table decor. Even the salt and pepper shakers look like elegant chess pieces.

This candle gave me hope in some dark moments.

Ceiling lights taken on a trip to Ottawa last year. I accentuated them with a bit of sepia.


This ceiling light lived in a washroom at a winery in Niagara Falls.

Three Line Tales: Week #72

(Photo by Joel Filipe)


I fell into the dark waters…or was I pushed.

All I remember is the jelly fish surrounding my body and telling me to go up.

I should have listened.

Pic and a Quote


“Nonsense wakes up the brain cells. And it helps develop a sense of humor, which is awfully important in this day and age. Humor has a tremendous place in this sordid world. It’s more than just a matter of laughing. If you can see things out of whack, then you can see how things can be in whack.”
Dr. Seuss
