The Image of The Month (IoTM) gives us a chance to honour the images that have touched us over the month. Get your July entries in now! For more information msg sinnerjohn John Starzee Star or zenjenny Jen.
We cant wait to see what you come up with in July so get your phone cameras clicking (we still make that noise in our head) and get your image in - you could be a winner!
No, but I like words. I subscribe to a Word of the Day email. My latest favorite is “necropolis” a large cemetery. Must be the looming All Hallows’ Eve.
It took me a minute of looking back to see what I was talking about. But, yes, I see. I also like the sound of certain words, the meaning of of others, and writing some. Immanent would be tough for me to write. Too many “m”s. I’d would over hump them, if that makes any sense.liminal: the signified *space*
immanent: how it looks, and how it feels to write it
acquiesce / acquiescence: how it sounds, and how it feels to say it
Great idea Starzee there is a haiku app out there where people would contribute a line which I found quite entertaining. This is a great ideaAs a theme for my 52 challenge this year, I planned to post an original haiku on a photo or collage each week. Shortly after that, other haiku began cropping up, so it was suggested that I start a thread and invite all Mobitoggers to express themselves in a pho-ku or hai-oto or whatever you call this sort of creation.
Most are aware of the 5-7-5 guide for Haiku. That refers to a line of 5 syllables, followed by a line with 7 syllables, ending with another 5 syllables. Thus a haiku is born. The Haiku police don’t live here, so if yours has 5-8-6, no one will care. Have fun and get in touch with your inner poet.
To help you create your own, here are some helpful links:
From Wikipedia: https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/text/haiku-poetic-form
William Higginson has some suggested, helpful “rules” for haiku creating: https://www.thehaikufoundation.org/edwall/higginson_guidelines_for_writing_haiku.pdf
To generate a haiku (I had a great time with this!): https://www.poem-generator.org.uk/haiku/

I gave a couple of links at the beginning of this thread
Don't change anything on my behalf, Star! Ill find a nice picture and see what I can compose in response. I tend to go with short line length, but sometimes quite epic in lines! I'm rusty, as I haven't written anything since I finished my dissertation in 2017.It doesn’t have to be haiku!!!! Use quotes from someone, song lyrics, write your own epic poem. I’ll change the title to something more general!!!
I hoping a little change will breathe fresh life into this thread! Thanks JillyG Jilly for reminding me of it!Don't change anything on my behalf, Star!

It‘s wonderful!! Your story reminded my of the time we were hiking on some state land and stumbled on some hives. I’m sure the honey was wonderful from all the wildflowers!View attachment 169181
'Out of the Strong'
Do not advise the bees
what dark quarters we have visited,
for against our misdemeanours
harsh recompense will be made.
Should humming ears discern
the detail of our schemes
from covert dispatches,
that jovian strength
we drew from their august combs
shall be withheld and
we shall apprehend
Summers glory no more
I'm not sure if this is a mobile photo or one from my compact, but I took it a few years back in Cyprus. Just at the side of the road in the middle of nowhere were this cluster of hives. I was put in min of Sylvia Plath's bee poems and the old folklore of telling the bees when their keeper passes away.
great stuff, it was more for the words than the image tbh.It‘s wonderful!! Your story reminded my of the time we were hiking on some state land and stumbled on some hives. I’m sure the honey was wonderful from all the wildflowers!
We’ll assume this time that this is a mobile phone photo as non-mobile images are off limits to post. For future reference you can check the metadata with and app like Metapho .
