This week for Ronovan Writes Haiku Prompt Challenge I’m going to share with you some photos of myself and my family that I took on the 1st of January just before the fireworks were scheduled to be set off the award winning pier at Cromer. If you managed to see my previous post you will have seen that we are taking a short New Year’s break in Cromer. https://kyrosmagica.wordpress.com/2015/12/31/happy-new-year-2/

The photo above is of one of the finale fireworks,  isn’t it absolutely wonderful?

Here we are huddled together trying to keep warm, we stopped for a quick hot chocolate, just before the display.

The fireworks were spectacular, and my only regret is that I didn’t have a good enough camera to do justice to their beauty but nevertheless here they are in all their wonderment:

I just loved how this one turned out, to me it looks like a pretty present with a sparkling lid, and the one immediately after it resembles some kind of beautiful sea creature.

And this particular fellow is an explosion of flowers.

And this the biggest fizzing lollipop you are ever going to see!

As to this one, it looks like a giant creepy crawly to me!! What do you reckon?

They were all so amazing that they inspired me to write a haiku with them in mind:

A New Year Divine

A New Year divine,

So sublime the heavens smile!

Fireworks in motion.

 

Followed by a Tanka:

A pretty present

All wrapped in shimmering light

Perhaps it is real?

A momentary delight

Sending our senses reeling.

 

A tanka consists of 5 lines and 31 syllables.

Each line has a set number of syllables see below:

Line 1    5 syllables

Line 2   7 syllables

Line 3   5 syllables

Line 4   7 syllables

Line 5    7 syllables

I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I?

With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained.

    • Thank you Annika, how sweet of you to say. The girls make me very proud. It is lovely spending time just the four of us, especially as my eldest is away for a large part of the year at Sussex University in Brighton. Thank you for your kind New Year wishes Annika, all the best for 2016, xx
