photography, poetry



I was invited by Elizabeth from Tea and Paper to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”. Elizabeth posts photos, poems, artsy stuff and other things on her lovely blog. Please drop by and check it out.

I took this photo close to my daughter’s school. There was a burned car there and I laid this sweet daisy gerbera in the back, amongst the ashes. It made me think of hope, and so I wrote this little Tanaga poem to go with it. I would like to dedicate this post actually to Natalie. She has been having a rough time and I feel for her. I would also like to nominate Natalie for this challenge today (however, I totally understand Natalie if you can’t, or don’t want to do it ok).

Have you ever gone through a rough time in your life? A time where it felt like you had lost all hope? How did you deal with that?
