3 January: Bloganuary

Old car parked in the driveway
Unscuffed  Memories 

I can see it. A red brick house, 
hot to the touch come August. 

The lawn, cool and greened 
by the sweep of a sprinkler, 

and Dad’s black Ford Victoria, 
bought it the year I was born. 

White walls unscuffed, it was 
always parked in the driveway. 

He’d throw his spare coins into 
Saturday night’s bath water, 

and Mum curled my wet hair 
with strips of white cotton cloth. 

But mostly that red and black snake 
that chased me across the lawn.

  1. Both amazing. Can you share the prompts you give the Midjourney AI to come up with these images? The others I’ve seen are very mechanical and surreal, comic strip type of art and yours are so different!

    1. I occasionally add “fine line ink drawing and wet watercolour illustration”. Also if using v3, choose a style or artist to mimic ie., in the style of Norman Rockwell or whatever.
