It Starts With a Photo…
Emanita01 to RoughWaterJohn:
I shamelessly “borrow” both photo and comment threads from your blog. But I do link back to the source from whence they’ve been borrowed. Hey, I’m a pirate in herb…though unlike Jack Sparrow you can “trust me to [not] be dishonest”…LOL.
Oh to enjoy this enchanting abode…
spectacular view and a cobble stone road.
Timid smooth waves lap gently the shore…
Sea cliffs greet, above a white sand floor.
Setting sun finds west, clouds lead the way…
I long for sea breezes, in this place to stay.
Nicely done Gary! I find lots of great words and thoughts in blogs I visit, much cooler though, to find them sprinkled throughout my own blog. Love your visits and gifts.
@John: Wow! Great photo! Did you snap it?
Like these words: Earth is cupped in hands of light…Nice post;
@Gary: Do you just spew forth such wonderful verse or is there just the tiniest split-second gestation period before they are penned?…in other words…nice poem!
Glad you like the post! Not my photo, just another Gem from the ‘net.
Well Emanita, the short little pieces I deposit here have been penned especially for John’s images. I’ve found no place else where my mind flows as freely on an image, although I’m sure it would if I took the time to search elsewhere. I’m a faithful soul and tend to stick around when I’m feeling comfortable, welcome and not threatened by embarrassment. If you only knew about my limited vocabulary and screwed up grammar when I was in school. I barely graduated by the skin-of-my-teeth.
How I write is self-taught, through examples and inspiration through great writers like John and now of course yourself Emanita! I’ve learned one great lesson in life.
“When you hang-out with Turkeys, you will never soar with the Eagles”
I choose to soar with Eagles!
When I see an image that John has posted, it will either sing to me in words that pour from my mind…or, it will sit stagnant for a while and then poof the image begins to speak a soft poetic melody. I take a few minutes to draft what I feel and hit the “Post Comment” button. I have done this on several pages that John has posted.
My footprint is found in many places @ RoughWaterJohn’s
