Been up since 4am with my dog who has lost the art of sleeping. Trying to let everyone else sleep I got up with him. Decided I could look at this early start either
A) Negatively and get angry I have had little sleep or
B) Positively and use the time watching the pitch black sky spattered with twinkling stars begin to turn into a softly lit dawn that soon will casts slithers of light into my family room while catching up with some ‘ME’ time.
I chose B .
Outside gentle bird songs ( and not so gentle kookaburra calls) are the background chorus. I would have missed all this had I been sleeping. Mind you I might not be so philosophical later this afternoon when fatigue sets in hahaha.
So as pup now sleeps snoring softly , the black sky is now an orange horizon with very pale blue rising upwards I have had a quiet time reading and exploring photo scrap booking apps. I’ll show you one I made in this post.
I had some time to read through some writing challenge blogs I follow.
This weekend on the trifecta writing site the challenge was to create a HAIKU poem. A haiku is an unrhymed 17 syllable poem of Japanese origin. It usually has a seasonal reference.The structure is:
line 1 – 5 syllables
line 2 – 7 syllables
line 3 – 5 syllables .
Icy chills give way
To subtle warmth , vibrant hues
No more barren twigs
I used the app SNAP COLLAGE to create an illustration using my own images.
Have a wonderful day 🙂
