Rosemary Fibs and a Little Weather As Well

Here
Grows
Woody
Rosemary
A favorite herb
Mediterranean Flavor

Look
Wild
Growing
Pungent Herb
Lingers on my hands
Rosmarinus dew of the sea

It's Monday, 6 AM and the weather begs me to write just one more:

Winds
Howl
Today
Trees swaying
Rain pelting the ground
Umbrellas flying from fingers

Create you own fib: There are only 2 rules. The first rule is the sequence of syllables which is 1/1/2/3/5/8. The second rule is that no one-syllable lines can contain an article (the, a, la, le, etc.)

I just got a lavender plant and it's a reason to visit my patio these days. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I see we have something other than writing in common - education. I'm in my 3rd year, teaching the 6th grade. I love it!

Magical. I can smell the rosemary and feel the wind.

The pictures are wonderful as are the fibs! I love the smell of crushed herbs on my fingertips- like perfume!
BTW, Jone- you inspired me for my fib today! Thanks!

I love the part about 'lingers on my hands' - I think the smell of spices and herbs is arguably better than the taste. Thanks for reminding me!

Hi Jone- wasn't sure if you got my comment earlier (you can pick one or the other to post here) but wanted to let you know how sweet these fibs were- rosemary is one of my favorite herbs, for sure!
And, you were an inspiration to me for this One Deep Breath! So, thanks!

Woohoo, look at you go! Rosemary is my favorite herb and I love the treat of the last one ;)

Tammy said...

I LOVE rosemary and enjoyed your fibs ;) The last was a wonderful surprise treat.

Oops, sorry I posted twice. LOL

Love these! I have been stuggling to keep my rosemary alive on the sill. The first is my favorite.

Wonderful fibs! I like the weather one the best. It's easy to visualize.

Jone,
I liked all three. The first two spoke so eloquently to me.

Jone said...

Well, I was showing studnets how to do these and realized the weather one was wrong so I had to revise it.

Rosmarinus in a Fib! Wow.

Nice Fibbing. I love the imagery in the weather one plus the slyly hidden rhyme.

Wonderful! There isn't much better than growing your own rosemary. I have tons and tons of it -- the deer won't eat it and it makes my roast chicken even more delicious!
