  1. I can’t think of anything more photogenic/fun to paint than pears and mangos. Loved the perspective on your “trail” photo the other day.

    I’m not feeling very poetic today. How do you do it, EVERY day? Your skywatch poems are inspiring! Such a gift.

    Lovely painting, really nice shot.

  3. Love the haiku. Sweet and delicious for sure. Would love a batch of mango salsa on some fish today, or just with chips. Sweet golden ripe voice indeed! I also love the setting for the painting, like it was set aside and awaiting attention. Cool!


  4. It is pretty..Happy SOOC Sunday.

  5. Another great capture. I love the way your eyes are always looking for the “art” shot.

  6. Hi MMT, that painting is gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing and for visiting today.

    The Alamo is pretty cool, that is for sure … but the building itself is very tiny, and since it is a shrine you cannot take any photos of the inside. The city has built up around it. I really enjoyed the old trees and the old buildings very much.

    Have a wonderful week!

  7. Beautiful still life… love the photo too…

  8. charming…golden song
    so sweet my hands are sticky
    feasting on your words

  9. Hi! I loved your comment about my little “graffiti artist”! LOL! Nope…just an innocent “high five”!

    This photo of the gorgeous painting makes my mouth water!! Now I’m craving mangoes with lime and salt…..yummm……..


  10. sunlight caressing
    the edges of teapot and
    mangoes so gently

  11. Kettle is singing
    soon to visit beauteous pot
    such a sweet refrain

  12. Didn’t know mangoes could sing. But if you say so, I believe you, MMT.

    Your poetic talents never cease to amaze me. If you haven’t yet published a compilation, why not?

  13. I love the mangoes and the cobalt blue and white of the teapot. It is both warm and sweet. I like the alliteration as well.

  20. Drat! I got to the end of the wonderful comments and totally forgot what I’d planned to say. Mango salsa on chips! Mango with lime and salt! Oh gosh, I’m drooling, and it all began with a photo and 3 mangoes singing. YUM…great shot!

  21. Hark! Haiku in the air,
    mango yellow and teapot blue
    song of you.

  26. That’s a very painting but the mango looks like an apple, I am not sure. Maybe my sight deceived me of the colors lol

  27. i had very sweet mango for dessert this evening. i like the painting.

  28. Hi MMT! What a sensuous, delicious haiku! Mangoes are so exotic here in the northeastern US–I’m glad to know they have beautiful singing voices in Italian! Your photo seems to show a trail of juice around them–even more delectable! And the rich blue background and one flowered tile. Fantastico!
