cloud-split spring sunset astonishes radishes strain for closer look
For Tanka Tuesday, Colleen Chesebro offers us this summer 2018 photo image of wild radishes by Terri Webster Schrandt, which she took at the Sacramento River Delta at sunset.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

Ah, learn something new everyday! I’m trying to grow raddishes by cutting the tops off –
I think I’d do better by seeds.
Though I do have some carrot ferns growing (from the top)… and even some ‘baby’ brussels sprouts, and lettuce from the cut the bottom off method (start in water). And I actually used some bok choy from the a ‘cutting’ yesterday -not much but a start is a start 🙂
Joyful veggies to be astonished!
