Casts great shadow
Gold in daylight,
Warm and wondrous
Written for Sarah’s Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 13 August 2022!
For this week’s Lucky Dip, Sarah reached into her mystery bag and pulled out a Septolet.
Above is my effort with my photos of the moon taken 11th and 12th August.
The Septolet is a poem consisting of seven lines containing fourteen words with a break in between the two parts. Both parts deal with the same thought and create a picture.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
This is beautiful, Di
Thank you. Although there are only a few hours between the pictures, the difference was quite something.
Thanks Christine. A new one for me.
Simply Di-lightful! 😻🌈
Beautiful photo and poem. 🙂
You are welcome, Di. 🙂
Love this, what a perfect complement of images and verse
Thanks Sarah. We could not believe the size of the moon on Thursday night.
That was spectacular 😊
Brilliant! I’d never heard of this poetry form before! xo
Neither had I. It was an interesting one to do.
