Eugi’s Weekly Prompt-Swirling

photo by sillyfrog

Feathery furls.
Tendrils nodding to the new season.
Subtly swirling.
Shy and tender preparing a single act .
Precious persistence.
Coiled, yet poised; too humble for praise.
Earnestly engineered
Just for those who study beginnings.

    I have some ferns… I hope the cold weather didn’t ‘get ’em’ as they are not yet unfurling… I do love to watch their progress.

      They’re pretty tough plants. Best wishes and thanks!

        (PS) I also 💚🐸’s
        Somewhere I have a series of kaeru poems.

        KAERU, spelt K A E R U rather than “ea”, is the Japanese word for a frog. … KAERU also has a second meaning in Japanese: to return (帰る). There is a play on words in Japan, whereby frogs are considered a symbol of prosperity, that wealth and fortune will return (kaeru) wherever there is a frog (kaeru).

        I love that you shared those meanings with me! I’d enjoy reading your poems. Frogs have always appealed to me. I could watch them all day. 😉

        Frogs are good luck in many cultures 🙂
        You name the medium I probably have a frog in it (including greeting card illustrations and photos) 🙂

        (But then I also have too many other collections… including children’s books – I used to teach pre-school.)

        I’ve been a family child care/ teacher for 42 years. We have much in common. Frogs are elemental in life. They are like canaries in coal mines. If they are healthy and prosperous, then the ecosystem is too. Thanks for sharing, kindred spirit. 😉

Tell me something good...
