Happy Fri-Yayyyy My Friends,
It’s the little things that bring a resounding YAY in my day.
The hummingbirds flying by to pollinate my fuchsias, while the finches hang on the line to feed their babies.
Being kidnapped for a walk and dinner by a friend and giggling in childlike wonder. Ollie and Hunter had a ball too.
A hike in the woods with my friend Amit and stumbling on an owl that took my breath away. This was such a blast. I know my pics aren’t great but it was so awesome, I just had to share it with you. It was around 5:00 p.m. and I’ve never seen an owl in the daylight before. It stirred quite a ruckus amongst the others and the red tales were spooping down too but I couldn’t capture. You have to go visit our friend Timothy Price at Off Center and Not Even if you want to see his amazing owls before they fly away.
The Venus Dogwood morphing daily from green small buds to saucers.
The ice cream clouds of the magnolias.
The joy of my first yellow and green squash.
Reading your blogs and comments to get me through.
My Just Joey’s bursting color and scent.
Seeing things come together after trying to fit a square peg in a round hole, We’re almost through this first phase of the remodel and we’ll be in our new bedroom and bathroom in one month whoooo hooo.

What is emojiku?
The emojiku came about by Cindy Georgakas and Goff playing emoji tennis in the WP comments box. It was a natural step to take it one stage further and develop from being just a fleeting form of discourse into something more poetically constructive.
An emojiku is a hybrid poetic form, and is similar in format to a haiku / senryū or haiga. However there are no strict restrictive set rules. The format is open and fluid.
In the case of an emojiku the source image is an emoji. The emojiku is made up of at least three different emoji. Each emoji being the inspiration for one line of the short poem.
The process of creating an emojiku begins by a blogger sending three different emoji to a fellow blogger.
The second blogger responds by writing their emojiku and forwarding it back to the original blogger; who, in turn responds by writing a counterpoint emojiku using the same emoji images.
Join in the emojiku fun and share
