1 April: A-to-Z Challenge

A.I. Art: daffodils in the style of Paul Klee

A is for Arctic Front

Arctic wind blowing
As daffodils sway
A yellow smear

It’s worm in a puddle weather,
and it’s another day of
passing through in the wind.

For A-Z Challenge. Arctic Front: A boundary or front separating deep, cold arctic air from shallower, relatively less cold polar air. Written for the A-to-Z Challenge. Declared theme for the challenge is Weather. AI Digital Artwork is created using Midjourney. Imagery and micro-poems ©Misky 2023 Shared on Twitter #amwriting #atozchallenge @midjourney @AprilA2Z

  1. Weather is the BEST theme – we can always talk about the weather!! And another Stella image!


    1. I love weather, and all my little Oregon Scientific instruments. And I still can’t get over the fact that hens stand up when they lay an egg! I’m so glad that you included a video with your post.


  2. Cool! Take whichever meaning you prefer of that word. :-). I like “worm in a puddle weather”.


    1. Thanks, and many thanks for stopping by with your comment. Much appreciated. This is a deviation from my usual stuff, so I’m not sure how it’ll be received. Anyway, that worm … I opened the blinds this morning, and there was the biggest, fattest worm squirming in a puddle just outside the back door. I popped it into the soil before a bird could get at it. It does more good in my clay soil than in a bird’s belly.

  7. The weather…always a safe conversation starter…for your theme…Creative Art and Poetry…excellent!!! Yes, ‘worm in a puddle’…so much better for the ground than the bird. Thanks for sharing Midjourney…as an ‘old school’ artist, it’s amazing to see what technology has to offer. Really enjoyed your Letter A…I’m adding you to my AtoZ 23’Blog List. Come see me at…CollectInTexasGal


    1. Thanks for the lovely comment, Sue. My son is an archaeologist, living and working in the Bogotá area (familiarity is wonderful). I’ve added your blog to my reading list, so see you again soon!


  8. I studied Geography and Geology which included some meteorology so I love a good weather post (or bad as the case may be) but I am also intrigued by the A.I. element – will you be saying anything about how you actually go about creating with and from A.I. material?
    Thanks for visiting at how-would-you-know.com


    1. Hello, and thank you ever so much for your lovely comment. I use a “bot” called Midjourney to create my A.I. artwork. Simply put, the process is best described as writing an ekphrastic poem detailing how, where and what the image should look like, including the pixel weight, image ration size, and if it should reflect a particular style (cubism, abstract, still life, line drawing, photography, etc.). I hope that answers your questions.


  9. What a beautiful short poem, I´m looking forward to visiting your entries.

    I don’t think anything looks colder than daffodils shivering in an icy cold wind!
