Week Through the Lens 55

'I have woven a parachute out of every thing broken.'
~ William Stafford




We are linked this week with these creative bloggers:






'Through the glass darkly' ~ Our World on Cape Ann MA









'Prompt' ~ 'Wild Violets'  ~ I did an 'ad lib' and chose 'shrinking violets' ~ Wild I am.



A sparrow hawk, I believe visited us on Cape Ann MA





Bicycles actually standing up; rather than just thrown on the ground. I was amazed!
'W' for wheels for Alphabe link





Unique sky one night this week on Cape Ann MA ~ Dazzling light through dark clouds.





If it is not 'snow' this year then it is a 'week of rain' predicted. Fun,fun, fun!





The 'best' for last ~ She is about to 'nod off' as you can see from her eyes.





We are wishing you a delightful week. xo

Your posted comments are most appreciated. thanks!

  19. Oh yes you are a wild one Carol! Wildly creative! Loved the violet haiku a lot. Glad you took creative liberties with the theme. Thanks for everything in the post. Beautiful all as always, plus your words make me think! And that's a good thing.

  20. Hi Carol,
    The view of the water and the other photos in this post are very beautiful.
    I thank you for posting pictures of bicycles, for I truly love bicycles.
    Yes, real utilitarian bicycles used to (and still do) have stands.
    Somewhere along the way, out went the fenders and the kickstand, perhaps in the name of weight reduction, but I simply don't get it :)

    Happy Earth Day!
    Have a Beautiful Day!!
    Peace :)

  22. All great photos -- love the first one and it is amazing to see the bikes standing up! They must have learned to take care of their belongings! And, of course, ArtMuse Dog is the sweetest one of all :)

  23. I like the natural "frame" you found in the first shot!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sweet photos Carol! Your precious helper looks sleepy! LOL! A long day makes one fur friend tired! Always wonderful to see you here. Hugs, Anne

  25. I have a Sparrow Hawk hanging around my place. Such a gorgeous capture of a beautiful bird...

  26. A wonderful post, Carol. Makes the cold and snowy winters all worth it doesn't it!!
    Art looks like she is about to go where I do when I sit for very long, '_____land'.
    And those bikes, yes, they are parked nicely and neatly.

  27. Love the perspective in that first shot. What a cute photo of your sweet pup!

  28. I didn't see snow in any of your photographs and that's a good sign! You did save the best for last!

  29. Your first photo is awesome. It's nice to know that someone else will bend low to take a photo of the world through a bench's portal. :-)

  30. Hello greetings and good wishes.

    Building a parachute out of broken things is a wonderful idea. When things are broken we get perplexed, shocked and frustrated. A parachute or positive thinking will help us land safely on the ground and we will be able to find a solution to fix the broken thing and solve our problems.

    Lovely photos.

    Best wishes

  31. All the photos are awesome. I really like "lips tasting raindrops"...i can taste/feel that thought. BTW I got an email from A.M. Dog. She said she wants to come live with me. Honest! Really! ;)

  32. Beautiful haikus. We have certainly had April Showers here. And it shows its handy work in all the beautiful flowers!!! Have a grand week!

  33. Time is certainly not waiting for me!

  34. I like the sky photo. It looks like a storm is rolling in. And of course, Miss Sleepy Dog, though her eyes are still quite bright.
