Flowing Down

The taste of the spring water on my lips

Slowly soothing me to the core

The iciness of the cascading cool air

A frigid blanket of cold sweeps over the rocks

Publish a post that appeals to one of the senses: hearing, sight, touch, smell, and taste.

Somber State of Mind

My mind a soft and humble place

Water droplets collecting

The eyes of a dreary Monday morning

Weekly Photo Challenge: State of Mind

Seasons in the Sun


The pool is closed up for the winter, the tarp tautly stretched, but will soon be back in action for another summer of refreshing swims. It looks so lonely and depressing when all of the chaise lounges and tables are gone. I have been going to this pool for several years now and there are many memories to be taken from there. It was the inspiration for my very first blog post in fact. I like how the sky makes the scene look rather timeless. In the first photo, you can see the sun setting behind the tall tree on the far left of the picture. One of the bars in the gate is bent, and makes it look like this place has been abandoned and neglected for sometime.

Post title inspired by the Terry Jacks song. A lot of my post titles are inspired by song titles.

River Dance


A child’s soul

Innocent gift by the river

A thousand emotions

Fighting to fulfill

Their true moment in time

Inspired by playing along with the magnetic poetry site, and seeing a brilliant project by Katherine MacKenett over at DeviantArt, the site of over a million different art and literature creations.

The Mathemagician

Pyros dance in the flames

Surfers soak in the waves

Hackers live in the code using

Their high wired brains

And now I have been granted

A most powerful experience

Having all of these traits

Wrapped up in one neat package

I’m a story page turning

Mathematical genius

With a little bit of fire breathing,

Water shooting damage

Sense of Touch: Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

Here is my set of interesting shots for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Sense of Touch. It’s quite interesting to photograph things that normally wouldn’t be that great of interest to me, but yet another photo challenge refines my photographic eye (and hopefully memory).

Touching a light pole - cold and hard
My hand touching a light pole – cold and hard. The world is upside down because I thought this looked more interesting that way.
Prickly weeds – I’ve learned not to touch these but the lawn mower has a field day with them
Water coming down from the house spigot
The monster weed in greater detail
My cat on a soft bed of pillows – a combination of soft things
Sharp – the edge of this can lid that I cut my finger on a few days ago. Ouch!
Dandelion – soft, delicate, and expendable
Hard rock – literally. A close up of a crack in the driveway which looks like it contains a deep chasm of inescapable porportions.
Plastic Chewbacca
U can touch this weed
What use is a golf ball without a club?

WPC: Beneath My Feet

A number of things I found below

Terra firma under toes

Plants and water nature knows

Looking way down the road



A Different Perspective
My Shadow

Get Your Feet Wet
