Today is my one year anniversary writing this blog. I’ve created over 200 posts and have over 100 followers, which I am thankful for, This is to let you know that I’m appreciative for each and everyone of you. I enjoy writing my Poetic Thoughts. However, I’ve come to love and respect my fellow bloggers. Your dedication, creativity and artistry. Some of you are teachers of a healthy life, a positive life and just living life. One is never to old or to young, to live, learn and share.
*Note: for all the bloggers out there.
In the words of T. S. Eliot
For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”
And so my fellow bloggers, writers, poets, we begin. In doing so I’d like to thank you for taking the time to read my poetic thoughts and time to comment. It was always my desire to start a blog for my writing and some of my photos. This past year I finally fulfilled that desire for better or worse. Much love to you all.
I look forward to sharing more and too reading and seeing more of your informative and creative works. Wishing you all the best for this year! The song is for all of you. 😊💗

The lives of bees is amazing as they play an important role in our world. With pollution and insecticides bees are endangered. The first link explains the dangers to all pollinators. The second explains the life and rolls in the colony of bees. 🌎✌🏻❤️🌻🐝
rain bathes ground
pond no longer parched
robust life springs forth
awake sunlit wings
among the cat tails
free spirits on the wind
from lakeside prisons
freedom in rebirth
white Parchment awaits
stains Akimibi’s cloak
dying in red and yellow-
in chilled air
hand holds stay
turns into snow flurries

First I’d like to give credit to James Kahn for writing verses 4, 6 and 7, also teaching me something new.
I found this form of poetry extremely difficult. One must form an image using the least amount of syllables.
One thought must lead into the next in a progression on the subject. In Japanese poetry less is more or more is less, whichever way you want to look at it.
If you wish to learn more about this form of poetry, I have provided informative links.
