Joie de Vivre

Jane Paterson Basil, Making it Write,  invited me to Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. I’m an admirer and a fan of Jane’s beautiful poetry. We met not to long ago in Blogging University, Poetry 101. It didn’t take me long to appreciate her way with words.

Day One


Joie de vivre,

Samantha’s jump for joy

is a natural expression of her feelings.

It’s infectious. She’s a carrier everywhere she goes.

Her essence draws people to people to her.

“Just like birds in the air,

I want to be close

to her.”

The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you.

Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge.

Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command. Today, I nominate Kat Carpita of Dandelion Fuzz join the challenge.
