Onitsura inspired special #26 - camellia

putting in the water
the vase received
the camellia 

My haiku:

red camellia,
strong positive vibes from it -
good luck charm in spring

white camellia,
like her silky skin in youth
slowly withering

March 12th prompt -to be added later

where do butterflies
come from? and how do they fly?
my spring mysteries

this spring mystery:
colors turned into music
on the sunset sky




Should Be Reading

Today I'm also linking to Should Be Reading.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My current reading (actually re-reading) is Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. What can I say - I love the series!

My teaser:

He was creepy and dark and liked to set people on fire, true. On the other hand, he was smart and funny - in a twisted way - and somehow had a calming effect on Lissa.

I love these books because of the writing style, the funny approach on important teen topics. 

I've also joined Blog Blitz, a blog hop hosted by DL Hammons, a great initiative to help gain exposure as a new blogger. See the list below!
 
A busy day that has just started!

  4. oh, yes, the silky feel of those petals....sad that they must wither and fall..

  5. Funny teaser. I think it would be hard to get past his tendency to set people on fire.
    My Teaser is from THE DAY AFTER YESTERDAY.

    1. Nope. i've stopped at red and white - the traditional Romanian colors of the month of March. Red represents protection against evil and white represents life, renewal, reviving - just as March is!

  12. Hey,
    Was looking for the Dr. Who/Tardis, etc. but this is cool too. I don't usually read vampire style books, I just have so many more that I'm interested in, but I love that description!
