I love to tag posts. I also love hashtags. They can be wildly creative, funny and often much more revealing than the post itself. Tags are supposedly used for organizational and filing purposes – to be able to link, find and retrieve common threads. I also use them to check in on my own meandering and musings and feel, unlike the current trend, that you cannot overuse them (within reason). #this is just too much information – so I may actually do a full post using only hashtags.
One of my favorite blogging tags is (the poetry and philosophy of) blue.
How to describe the width and breath of blue without using the actual word?
cradled in the June sky a glimpse of the dozing moon
berry bumble to while away the taste of ripening
the wail of his sax lingers late into my lap
over the causeway deep into the brine of barnacles
its story lost – a piece of sea-glass
