My Favorite Place

For the Daily Post’s Photo Challenge: My Favorite Place…Hatteras Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, USA. The last two photos are pictures of my paintings that illustrate my love for watery shores. Something about the water, sand, and sun recharges me. 😊


color me
ocean greens and
icy glass blues,
brilliant steels,
dazzling champagnes
and velvety caramels
or fiery blush reds,
smoky marbles
and cloudless coffees…
the poetry, the magic is
in letting them bleed

Fear – A Quinzaine

“They Know Not” – Watercolor Painting by Kat Myrman

Fear makes us do crazy things.
What frightens you most?
Are you free?

~ kat – 4 February 2017

I am full of questions now. Here is another quinzaine to ponder …

“Pro Life” is a misnomer.
Is life eternal?
What is death?

~ kat – 4 February 2017

Wow! This poetry form is like a brain worm! It might even be the key to solving the world’s woes!!! More questions…

Happiness is everything.
What makes you happy?
Glass half full?

Okay…one more. Then I need to turn off my inquiring mind. I have things to do today!

We can never know the truth.
Is truth absolute?
Do you think?

The Quinzaine 

This poetry form is one I’ve never tried before. Warning…it can be addictive once you give your deepest questions a voice. Don’t let its brevity fool you. This seemingly simple 15 syllable French poetry form is one powerful little dynamo. Here is a bit from Shadow Poetry explaining what makes a quinzaine a quinzaine, in case you want to give it a try:

“The English word quinzaine come from the French word qunize, meaning fifteen. A quinzaine is an unrhymed verse of fifteen syllables. 

These syllables are distributed among three lines so that there are seven syllables in the first line, five in the second line and three in the third line (7/5/3). The first line makes a statement. The next two lines ask a question relating to that statement.”

Not Love

“Closet” painting by Kat Myrman 2001

would that I could hide away
silenced by your bitter enmity
would that I could hide away
appease your vain demands, do as you say,
let your fear define my life, my right to be
but that’s not Love, no, that’s not me
would that I could hide away

Savor the Morning

java beans brewing,
peaches, cream and sweet kisses
savor the morning
