Winter and Prose Combine

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by Kevin_d50, Jul 19, 2008.

  1. Our winter isn't leaving much behind to shoot, had to settle for these today.

    #1 - Perilous Propellers

    Where others left, yet hold they on
    These stragglers, left behind
    The friendship circle, broken, gone
    The winter has been kind.


    #2 - Decay

    With form deformed and toll being took
    And natures path, led way
    The remnants of what once had look
    Now dangles in decay


    #3 - Twisted Torture

    A cry for help, a last ditch made
    Attempt to reach the skies
    Alas, too late, soon good-bye bade
    One more of Winters' cries.


    #4 - Desolation

    A barren twig, a branch now light
    It's weight robbed by the sun
    And dry, and heat, and nature's plight
    Left standing, none, but one.


    #5 - Delicate Danglers

    Off-set against a carpet green
    And veils of white, so bland
    A last ditch effort can be seen
    For pride to take it's stand

    What a beautiful series. The poetry fits perfectly. Well done.
  3. The muse thanks then, indeed the man
    That stepped up to the mark
    Offered his thoughts, and pro-claimed fan
    My thanks to you, I hark

    You are indeed a poet! "As anyone can plainly see, a poet I will never be. For when it comes to writing verse, I know of no one who does it worse." I wrote this little ditty while taking a writing course many years ago in New York.
    Would love to see more of your work! Nice job.

    Hi Kevin, I tried to click on the link you provided, but it came up with "No Matches." Could put up another one.

    Macro shooting in winter is always a challenge, however I think your good 'eye' let you do very well. I am particually fond of the first and last images, the colour really works for me. Your writings are impressive also.
  10. sorry about that, I wonder if it's not "restricted" to the owner of the usename (i.e. me) - lol

    What you can do is click on my username at left of this reply, then a box will come up with profile data.
    The first windows shows Forum Info, then below that "Find all threads started by Kevin"

    Selecting that should hopefully work?

  11. thanks indeed robert!
