Nice one Pris. The poem works into the picture in an understated oblique sort of way, which is always the best way of course. Your three brief lines evoke a whole story.Rae
Thanks, RaeI had originally used the poem in loose 'haiga' form directly on another photograph. It never worked for me. I saw this painting and the combination (and separation) felt right.
have you heard the rumours that the Russians caused the storms that have struck America so often lately?My son was telling me about it so I googled it tonight and came up with some interesting sites.http://www.weatherwars.info/katrina.htmhttp://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread168749/pg2#pid1709501Some of what they say seems far fetched, but I must say ... the lack of action in the aftermath of Katrina seemed shocking and inexplicable to me in a country that is always first, and best equiped, to respond to disaster elsewhere in the world.
RaeThe theory seems far fetched to me, too. Global warming makes more sense.The lack of response?? Most people here have the same reaction. Why??I don't have any answers.
Pris, The picture left me speechless, and then I read your poem and thought "yes, those are the words meant for this picture." Beautiful.
That was beautiful... the image and the words are a perfect match. I think of my mom and her fibromyalgia... she has often expressed that exact sentiment... it makes me sad... and exhilarated all at the same time.
Just to clarify, the exhiliration comes from the thought of the dance that might ensue... I don't get exhilaration out of the pain and suffering that comes with not being able to do so and the longing to dance... it has been one of those days... just thought I should be really clear.. E
Hi ErinYes, it's hard when the body limits...yet there's always the hope!
