Two phrase stories

Prompt: “….and in a puff….”
“…and in a puff, all logic went out the window.”

For hbhatnager

I am trying this for the first time. A challenge posted over at hbhanager.wordpress.com

Stop over for further reading on the prompt, quite an interesting premise, could be fun:) It’s called a two phrase story.  The prompt phrase for this week is “…and in a puff…” to be completed however you’d like.

Tan Renga: Sacred Grove

the smoke from incense whirl
stirring of the gathering

the crows come calling
the leaves are all atwitter

then comes cry of an eagle
above the sound of the leaves

Tan Renga:Parables

ancient walls
covered in parables
speak to those who see
(Janice Adcock)

in voices through the ages
the lessons remain the same

Echoes of my Neighborhood

A walk in the park on Sunday

This was just standing by itself. The pretty girl that sneaks out of the house and have all eyes on here..and her parents didn’t even know she was gone:)

This box was at the plant store. Gorgeous!

This is begging for a toddler to climb on it. I don’t if it’s art or for just that purpose. Pretty cool shape.

I tried jumping to reach this chin-up bar, but I was too short. A man going by on a bicycle saw my efforts, stopped, got off his bike, picked up that log like it was a feather, and placed it for me to stand on. That was very nice of him. I thanked him, and my shoulders thanks him:)

This is the skateboard park, in the park. The was a toddler running up and down the side of this. That’s about what I would do here. Great idea little one:)

The was a game of cricket going on…Yep, they were a cricket club. And they were having fun..

Spring has sprung everywhere. Everything still has that “tender green” look to it.

Especially these…

The Mountain Stream

listening with another
to the music of the mountain stream
here is no other (Hando)

lost in the music the earth makes
a glimpse of deeper self

the street-sweeper’s broom

followed by the garbage truck
the roosters of city life

I will forever be facinated by the way beads of water sit on a flower
how it holds it ..gently
in perfect form..patiently
until it no longer does
I often wonder
what type of bargain
they had in place
..and for how long
and who let go first
