There’s nothing
Like a blue sky
And a lazy day
After a long
Year of tenure

Summer’s magical sunset

Summer sunsets
Have inspired me
To send to all
A reminder of
World’s beauty

Hi everyone!

I am trying hard to keep away from posting but couldn’t resist sharing this last drawing inspired by the long warm days ending off in magical scenery…

Enjoy the next half of this month, it goes quicker than we think 🙂

The happy lamppost!

I can hear your heart beaming
Your light shinning through
The bluest of skies, crowned
By a Lei of yellow and green
Enhancing the azure above.

Of boats & ropes…

You hold with ease
The ropes
Circle upon circle
Neatly coiled
As the thoughts you
Have tamed
And the anecdotes
You have
come to value.

The world of silence-March 1991-Adjusted-January 2013

The world of silence
————————

Alone to be yourself
Through your eyes
Not another’s
Befriending
Harmony to
Whom you owe
Nothing, everything…

You pick conticent
Plenitude that
Obliges nothing…
Words unsettles
Whereas silence…
In blessedness
In its right measure

Nothing better for
Unadulterated repose.
Alone for the world tires…
Verbal duels, ambiguous
Phrases, complex minds,
Primeval instincts…
Wary, dominant,

Sometimes wild,
Sensitivity at skin level,
Applying pity in most
Unforeseen moments…
Very little for you who
Flees from all that.
Weary to the point…

Of taking refuge in
The World of silence.

A candle flame 28.5.2013

Candle & poetry
©copyright2013owpp

A person very close to my heart came with a burnt out candle with no wick left and said to me, I know you take photos of everything so I am giving this to you. What appeared as simple words triggered a series of very inspirational photos and this soothing poem. At the end of all the fun, I played around with the melted wax and shaped it into a rose.
I have come to understand that putting an object under the scrutiny of a lens opens us up to beauty & magic, usually gone unheeded.

A candle flame
——————

Burning, burning in the night
A candle flame small and bright
Melting tears on its edge
Sculpting its way to lava swell

Flickering shadows,
Dancing off the pages,
Of a story Words create
Fighting for a Better place,
A role befitting the prodigy,
Their master Sired.
Cajoling, exhorting
It to permanence.

Burning, burning into dawn
A candle timid and drawn
Day tiptoeing around scattered roles
Around the maker of a life beginning

To unfold.

And all you need is rain (Trees 6. Final) 3.6.2013


And all YOU need... ©copyright2013owpp

And all YOU need…

This is the final of a series…The end of a photo collection carefully chosen for a project very close to my heart, the tree project.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did bringing it to completion.

And all you need is rain
——————————

The artist clamors your abstract
Your depiction of natural history
Monet invents the layout of his …
The picnicker requests your stool
The bird liens a nest.
The parking lot… A division
Towns, parks, solicitate your flourish
And all you need is drops of rain.

From the benches I pay homage (Trees 5) 2.6.2013

From the benches…
———————

From the benches I read and pay
Homage to the reverence I feel
Toward the decorum surrounding
Me.

From the contrast in colors…
To peaceful hidden spots or thick
Shiny roots exploring the mysteries
Of earth’s nether.

All groan…Whisper in harmony
A lullaby to the ones who see.

Trees in snow 30.5.2013 (Trees 4)

Trees in snow
—————–

There is nothing like snow to
Bring out the magnetism of
Black, white and the myriad
Shades in between. To outline
The curves, decorate a pine tree
With iced frills…

There is nothing like bare trees
Lined by nature’s symmetry or,
Hovering protectively over a shy
Winter sun… branches illuminated
Near dusk, a twig defining whiteness
In an arctic day, air numbing, solid
As a nutshell.

After such a day, we go by the wooden
Swings and smile at nature’s constant
Rebirth…
