Bussokusekika is a rare form of Japanese poetry that consists of six lines written in a 5-7-5-7-7-7 mora pattern. David Bowles

Written In Response To:

MLMM Tale Weaver #237 – Weeds – This week consider the notion of weeds as your topic to write about.  What does it mean to you? The unwanted plants that grow in your garden? The irritating people in your life? Something others consider a pest but you think otherwise.  Go where the prompt leads you.

Maria Antonia Weekly 2019 Photography Challenge – Come join me, each Saturday, in posting a photo. There is a list of the prompts to help inspire us. The order of the photos won’t matter. In other words, you don’t have to start at the top and move toward the end. For this challenge, you may pick any prompt on the list and start with that.  MY CHOICE OF PROMPT: HIDDEN.


hidden are the weeds

that choke a living beauty

evil intentions

are working undercover

surprising its next victim

yet…beauty always triumphs
