A Bloggers Pic In Poetry 5

Welcome to

A Blogger’s Pic In Poetry

This is number 5 and again Daniel Plumer is the featured photographer.

I just have one question…do u see what eye see?
Daisies Of Yellow

Slowly approach, does the Cloud Of White
Sneaky he is, disguised in upper top right

Under cover of thick and dark it seems 
Hiding behind glasses, his eyes are not seen

Laying in wait is the Rock Of Stone Mount
Face in center below, lips parched under its snout

Hand of left ready to batter what the cloud will bestow
His chest still and steady beneath the face, coming slow

‘Tis a battle to commence betwixt these two fellows
See them flee the scene, all these Daisies Of Yellow

A Blogger’s Pic In Poetry 4

Hello everyone and thank you for your interest in the series

A Blogger’s Pic In Poetry 

This is number 4 in the series and another photograph by Daniel Plumer
What stands out for me in this photo?…the fire and ice look, each giving the other their due respect in opposites, creating a union of beauty.  


Two Beautiful


A fire travels above the cool quench below in sight

Consuming not to destroy, but to give wondrous light

The coolness below touched not by its red hot glare

Seems they two admonish, their beauty declared

A Blogger’s Pic In Poetry 3

This is the third in the series

A Blogger’s Pic In Poetry

Reading has taken on a technological turn and more people are reading on electronic devices and when I saw this it brought to my mind the art of reading a paper book. 

I don’t remember how I found this one but it definitely caught my eye. The first click of the picture took me to Britta Nickel’s Tumblr blog/page which is linked to Sweet Southern Nights also on Tumblr. On Sweet Southern Nights you will find an array of photos that range from A to Z.


Read

The art of reading in abnormal tradition

Feet in air bare monumental condition

Hard copy in hand, there’s nothing like it

Twenty seven times straight, becomes habit

A Blogger’s Pic In Poetry 1

I recently came across this photograph by way of my Google+ stream courtesy of Anissa Mayhew  who shares a lot of nice pictures on her stream from other members.

I don’t know what it was about this photo but I was impelled to write a poem about it. 

To give you a heads up, this is the first of more to come in a series I’m calling: A Blogger’s Pic In Poetry

I’m not sure where I will find them or how often I will see a poem in a photo, but when I do, it will be included in the series.

I will say that I have spent some time on Daniel Plumer’s Google+ page and I have four poems from some of his photographs. This is the first and I will post the rest in the order that I viewed and wrote the poem for each one. 
Reflection

What is, reflects of itself
Doubling of single, non-stealth
Rocky hard, branches sticking
Softly seen, yellow green lifting

I am who I am, am I?
Seen as such is, to eye
Same as is, unchanged two one
Crazy it is, when seen how it’s done

Corners Of Hope

Hoping or wishing for something or several different things for me brings a sense of adventure, challenge. Some may say setting myself up for rejection, failure. Maybe I’m just dreaming.


Well for one thing, I have already had multiple failures! Rejection has laughed in my face upteen times!!


No, I’m not setting myself up for more of that…simply because “that” is already out there ahead of me. What I have to do is get better at avoiding them. 


Doing what you enjoy and having fun at it…in hopes that maybe someday, something just may break in a good way.

  
I think I gonna keep pecking away at what I love….continue to dream, hope, and wish.

Time Share


      …hey, if you like to write and think you can do it in 55 words…it’s a chance to get it published in their Love In Creativity Project.





Your time, mine~are hours
Feelings of passion in air
No one knows, save we
It is ours, we share

Hearts tell the tale,
No one knows
Thump thump thump
Sweat, sweet rose

Releasing fruit sensuous
Boilers steaming, hot
Warming presence felt
Even tho touch, is not

Deep sighs of breaths,
Touch of no caress  



If Time Did Stop

Time ticks away by the seconds
Minute by minute, hour by hour
Awake we all, as the sun beckons
Rise from the bed, into the shower

 Starting the day that awaits
Fresh from head to toe
Off to work, or whatever in states
Going here and there, to and fro

But I wonder sometimes
If time came not to be
Also do bells and chimes?
The waves from the sea?

No more songs from birds
No more wind or rain
 Silence, we hear no words?
 Hearts feeling no pain?

Would there be peace
At long last for sure?
Or does life cease
For all to endure




My thanks to The Poetry Palace for this award.


Blessings come from God, and people with love
The award you see, yes the one up above
Has been given to me, for the poem I wrote
“If Time Did Stop”, with lumps in my throat

I wrote it with care, and much in mind
And they who voted, were oh so kind
I write this with love, and appreciation
I accept this award from my, writing station





Does It Really Come Out?

How many times have I heard that saying?…..it all comes out in the wash….and most important, how true is it? I’ve heard it and said it myself most recently. Of all the times I have heard or said it, I have never until this last time ever said this….I want to see that load when it comes out of the wash


Yes I would like to see if whatever it was that went into the load with the clothes actually gets washed away. It’s never anything good that needs to be eradicated, but only mistakes and problems that get the spotlight in this situation. 


Next question is who does this laundry and when does it get done. Thinking about this for a minute, I would have to say that maybe the laundry never gets washed because so many of the same mistakes and problems still exists. Either that or the detergent that goes into the wash is not effective enough to do the job. Maybe the water is too hard or too cold, or too big of a load and not enough water.


Of course we all know what I’m saying is nonsense…but it is something to think about…don’t ya think?

My How Time Flies!

It’s hard to believe it’s been over a month since my last post. Hmmmm….it takes me back to a time when I said I wouldn’t allow myself to have long lapses between posts….i guess I was wrong. 


I’m sort of mixed concerning how I feel about going so long without a post. Actually, I have a couple in draft that I probably won’t post…I was venting very heavily. I also wrote a poem…in draft…also venting. Doing that has helped me to deal with a few things. All of this happening while I was busy getting designs done and uploaded to my new online store, Designs by Reglandus


It is a lot of work coming up with designs and getting them on the site…more work than I originally thought it would be. But you know what?….I’m really lovin’ it. Sometimes I’ll spend hours tweaking a design and even after it’s uploaded I may make a change or two like I did with this one.

Before


After


After uploading the first design, I noticed the text seemed to be too small and TheQuesMark was ok but I decided to “chain” it and as you can see, I wanted to add some oomph! I think moving the lower arrow to the front added depth to the entire design. I’m still currently replacing the old design with the new one on the website.


I also have freehand designs that I mess around with. Currently, the design at the top (below) is on the website in a different color and the one below that is also there in a different flavor.





I have several designs in different colors and other stuff that I have yet to upload. I could upload what I have so far and let it ride, but new ideas keep coming and I keep going at it.


As far as blogging goes, I’m making no promises but I have missed this….more than I realize. 

WhatrUWorkinOn-Friday Set 4


Yes it’s that time again….Link-in with your project.



Looking Up From Here





I know I haven’t been steady and on time with the meme, but I am staying committed to making a run of this. I’m still clearing my plate of unwanted and unneeded this and that. 


I’m going to design a meme header…maybe that’s something I can do this rainy weekend. 


Speaking of designs…I’m definitely getting back into that and have a real good shot at getting my product line on the market. I’m still looking into the details, but all looks promising. I’ll be posting some items that will be on the website and I’ll be getting back into some giveaways. 


It’s been awhile since I’ve written poetry and with what I’m going to be doing, that just may get me back into it.


Reflecting back….I still know that I have a ways to go, but feeling the way I do now is a welcomed addition.
