Wisteria in silence and sound

A scent of Wisteria if real or fake borne by warm breezes over rippling tidewaters. A ship’s sharp whistle from deep in the gut, as sweet music echoes through silent halls … a faceless, mute bibliotaph, who treasures… within his soul… sounds he cannot experience except in his penetralia. © Sometimes, 2017   This WORDLE #129, has languished in my notebook for months.    I … Continue reading Wisteria in silence and sound

a glimpse of life…passing by (Daily Post Entry: Blur)

<a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/out-of-focus/”>Focus</a&gt; above is a shot taken years ago, in early 1980s, through the window of a van traveling at high speed along a rural road in Yucatan, near the archeological site of Chichén Itza, Mexico.     At first glance it is just a ruined photo, which is often what an amateur photographer gets when shooting on-the-fly from a grimy vehicle window, speeding down a road.    … Continue reading a glimpse of life…passing by (Daily Post Entry: Blur)

a penny’s worth of death, a poem MindLoveMisery’s Wordle # 166

    a penny worth of death A gun, dark and dreadful, cold steel caressing the unwilling hand seductive music of silence and pain… among bloody ravages of the plague as dancing creatures defy the promise of the Tarot foretelling the kiss that comes forth— levitating, tentatively echoing the sparking retort of the pistol’s release of a penny’s worth of death. ©Sometimes, 2017 Continue reading a penny’s worth of death, a poem MindLoveMisery’s Wordle # 166

Fairy on her shoulder…Cee’s Thursday Special Photo Exercise: juxtaposition

  I like the last photo, with the softer tint, and the less contrast.    The crop cut out extraneous details, and zoned in on the woman and the sleeping fairy figure, which is the theme of the picture.    . This is a fun exercise, Cee!  https://ceenphotography.com/2017/04/28/thursdays-special-juxtaposition-2/#respond Continue reading Fairy on her shoulder…Cee’s Thursday Special Photo Exercise: juxtaposition

Tile Art

Here are some pictures that just tugged at me to create while walking through my entry.  They are twelve-inch natural stone tiles.   I never noticed the (featured photo) before, but once the face popped out at me…at least three faces in fact…I knew they were perfect for Cee’s Odd Ball Photo challenge.     The eye just seems to adjust for the scene. These shots remind me … Continue reading Tile Art

Promise in a Poem (Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge entry)

  I am unique among my peers having arisen from the Winter more or less intact… if a bit bedraggled. One might say the word—disarray? to describe broken remnants and staring, bleary rimless eyes askew and discolored arrangement of my limbs and leaves, disheveled scraps of nascent green tones, silky serrated edges of hemline. Better days have been….and will be again and my modest Winter … Continue reading Promise in a Poem (Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge entry)

Here’s a scrap of rhyme from one of my notebooks, Wordle #124, from last October’s prompt in MindLoveMisery’s post.    I would apologize for the delay, but here it is anyway….better late than never. https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2016/10/10/wordle-124-october-10th-2016 A grey Cygnet has lost its Mum adrift on a branch of fennel.

No I really don’t need another blog.   I am happy with SOMETIMES, which is a conglomerate of  photos, poems, eclectic ramblings…and contributions from other bloggers who have consented to allow their posts to be re-blogged here.

  [Here is my entry for MindLoveMisery’s Tale Weaver #105, The Dark Side The challenge is to write a horror tale, something dark and scary (if possible…asking for “scary” is like asking for “humor.”)  I usually don’t write this kind of thing, but here goes….] https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2017/02/02/tale-weaver-105-the-dark-side-02-02-17/ Some call them “entities,” the mysterious forms that appear out of the dark identities that linger beyond their time … Continue reading Entities, a dark tale of “what if?” for MindLoveMisery’s Tale Weaver #105

Scapegrace…MMLM Wordle 137

(Day 16, 2017) Rogue Mayor ever the scapegrace (his position aside) given no quarter of tolerance for sudden nicotine cravings… mealy-mouthed and queasy from years of parapraxis and gelatinous back-bone… he longed for a fusion of wit and wisdom to complement his vast popularity. Then at last came the day that a spark took flare and he enacted a non-smoking law of dubious but far-reaching … Continue reading Scapegrace…MMLM Wordle 137
