Senryu : blush


blush to admit it
at the least provocation
my thoughts turn to you

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Today in color Your world is “blush pink”, hence the poem.

Ok, I meant to do a tutorial yesterday because of Freebie Friday but didn’t finish it until today.  I made the pic up above with some freebies that are available through Sunday.   So if you’d like to see the tutorial of the pic with the senryu click here.

I need to learn to do screen recordings — the way I do tutorials is more how I talk which is good for you-tube but not so much written tutorials.  I think written, it comes out too long. Plus I think it might be easier than trying to capture them in little gyazo gifs.  I do things intuitively so might be eaiser to just capture things on the fly.

If you just like freebies, here they are, just click. They are available through Sunday the 25th but are no long free starting Monday, the 26th:

Top 3 are fonts as I figure that’s most useful for writers. They have a mix there.

Tanka : cherita


inscrutable word

a large pile of bones had grown out of the blue

oh dear, myriad baby krakens skittered away from mama’s provisions

Tanka: magic hope


she reached for magic
as earthquakes pushed land upward,
pulling her home back
fool wizards warring above
she hoped to bring back balance
