BUILDING BLOCKS OF HISTORY 24TH MAY

Things happen every day, big and small. Together they make our family history, our local history, our country’s history and sometimes they become part of global history.

All of these things happened on 24th May in years gone by.

In  1543 Nicholas Copernicus received the first copy of On the Revolutions of Heavenly Spheres, on his deathbed.

1n 1819 Princess Alexandrina Victoria was born in Kensington Palace.

In 1956 the first Eurovision Song Contest was held.

In 2014 we went to the new Wembley Stadium for a play-off final.

HAIGA HEAVEN CHALLENGE 22 – GRACE

Welcome to Haiga Heaven Weekly Challenge!

Regular visitors know, I love Haigas.

Traditionally, Japanese Haigas are a complimentary combination of a haiku and simple painting. Modern Haiga writers embrace a range of visual media including photography and graphics.

Join me, having fun, creating new Haigas, using your favourite medium.

If you want to join in,  you’ll find a new prompt to inspire your  Haiga  every Sunday.  Add a link in the comments box to share your Haiga.

I look forward to seeing your take on this week prompt – Grace.

World of elegance,

graceful beaux gestes beside

fierce mortal combat.
