This week over at Word Craft A Specific Form..A Kouta..a new form to me. It is a syllabic, variable odd numbered syllable lengths, the most common patterns are written in lines of alternating 7-5-7-5 syllables or 7-7-7-5 syllables.
On my walk a few days ago I saw this on a sidewalk. It looked recent, but it wasn’t. This is an image with deep grooves. It looks like someone had taken the time to do this while the concrete was still wet. Usually, when I see these, it amounts to a stained imprint. This wasn’t that.
For Cee’s Flower of the Day FOTD Challenge. My large Hosta. The leaves on this thing are about one foot wide. They are the master of all they survey. The stray cat that owns my yard had kittens under there a couple years ago. We noticed them only when we were watering the garden and they ran out from the thundering noise of the water hitting the leaves.
I feel sorry for the tulips that claimed the spot first. Once the hostas started springing forth, they didn’t stand a chance. They too have unusually broad leaves! They are learning to get along.
