Art, Photography and Poetry Monday

Cape Ann MA ~ Fishing Boat leaving harbor ~ for Mosaic Monday

Cape Ann MA ~ Sunrise ~ for Mandarin Orange Monday

For Monday Mellow Yellows ~ ArtMuse Dog now poses for camera.




For Carpe Diem Haiku ~ prompt ~ 'green barley' and Creative Every Day
For ABC Wednesday ~ J is for Jib ~ a type of sail


More winter weather is predicted ~ a wintry mix. That sailboat with the 'jib' up sure looks inviting! Have been dabbling in some pastels lately, went to a dance Saturday night and it was very good for my creative spirit, being with friends and dancing up a storm. Find walking every day and some yoga all enhance my creative spirit. Wonder what you do to exercise mind, body and spirit?

We are linked today with these creative bloggers:

  5. Love your pictures. You're very good at this photography stuff.
    Love the canine too. I was once owned by an adorable Bichon Frise - still miss her, although she's long since left my life, and this mortal coil too.
    Re Creativity: I never see myself as particularly creative. I just enjoy blogging, that's all.
    Have a good week

  16. Everything looks so pretty and filled with sunlight. Wintry mix...It's hard to believe but it is rather chilly out. I find that walking about town and the beach keeps me energized, at peace, and filled with awe at the beauty around me. Even when it's cold...just makes it all the nicer to come home.

  17. Hey we got a wintry mix today too! UGH!
    That sailboat does look sweet ( and warm, and summery, and NOT Wintery Mixed at all ) :)

  24. Cape Ann is a beautiful place.

  25. Lovely photos! It is almost spring; we are heading for warmer days and lesser clothes. I look forward to that. Maybe I will find energy to take some walks, then. (I am forced to take anti-psychotic medicines so I am very weak.) My answer to your question is "writing poetry". I know there is not much physical challenge in that. But there is a lot of mental challenge in that. And joy. Thank you Lord! And when I get comments on my poems like the one you just gave I feel fantastic. Thank you! :-)

  33. Sailboats sometimes sail on our lakes, but hard to see the beautiful ones here. I definately need to go on vacation and see some like the one you have. The water and color of the sail are gorgeous.
