There’s Always an Angle #photography #poem

I look above, you look below

what in the middle find?

the layers of these bricks you see

no more the daily grind

 

 

 

Another Delightful Daily Post Photography Challenge  – Angular

What angle do you like to shoot?

Measure of Success #postaday #poetry

in balance

I have known plenty

I have known want

I learned more from one

and little from the other

it takes no imagination

no strength of character

to spend large amounts of money

you never have to balance

need with want

you just buy

throwing

bored

the bag

into the

corner

YES

I have known plenty

and I have known want

it takes ingenuity and creativity

to stretch one dollar, one pound or euro

to last seven days

and at the end of the week

to look  the paper in the face

see an upturned hand in need

smile as it becomes another’s

I have known plenty

and I have known want

what I learned

about spending money

can fill one tablespoon

what I learned

from having none

can fill volumes of books

 p e r h a p s

you will

be the

spice

of

L

I

F

E

So many people will attribute success to having  money and things. Why is this the case? Over the centuries, some of the greatest minds had very little; most of the most talented artists, musicians and poets were poor. I have never been wealthy (not in the material sense) but I have known some extremely wealthy people and was sad at their inability to think or use their resources for anything but themselves. (dont get me wrong I have also known people who had money, lived simply and gave their money abundantly to help others.)  I think money is a tool (like a wrench or a mixer). If you know how to use such an implement, you can fix things that are broken or you can create a new spicy dish. If you do not, then they are worthless pieces of metal. (or paper)

The wordpress prompt for Post a Day is the Spice of Success.

If “failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor” (Truman Capote), how spicy do you like your success stories?

The Golden Hour #wordpress #photochallenge #photography

pediment

architecture

the theaterstorms end

The golden hour

when light fuses with nature

birds finish their nest building

fire flys get their cue

and we exhale

… another day

I love the way that the light diffuses and warms at the end of the day – the architecture has a warm glow to it’s ivory texture

Thanks to this week’s wordpress photo challenge  “The Golden Hour”

Child’s Play #poetry #children #photography

Ahhh the delight we gather in the laughter of a child

happychild's play

sweet bubbling laughter

discovery light’s each day

catch the song of a child

as he delight’s in simple play

Weekly Photo Challenge “In The Background” #photography #B&W #poetry

Lurking in the background

just beyond my sight

is a shadowy presence

 evokes in me much fright

*

will darkness creep still slowly?

passing through the gate

what is it dark is holding?

I gasp at what’s at stake

**

Please bar the door – protect us

do not unleash the beast

can’t you hear it gnashing

thinking me its feast?

*

Lurking in the background

just beyond my sight

is a shadowy presence

 will I last the night?

This week’s prompt at WordPress’ photo challenge is “In the background”

There are always wonderful stories just out of reach for the viewer In the Background. Please enjoy delightful photography from the weekly photo challenge.

Do you enjoy a dark fiction? Pen of the Damned offers some exceptional writing in the dark/horror genre each Tuesday
