Welcome to our blog where we view life from the eyes of an artist's soul and explore how creativity enhances the inner spirit.
Today being Tuesday's post we are exploring poetry, more specifically, Japanese haiku and photography and its creative elements such as altering a photo. There is beauty here on the two blogs we are linked with, poetic and visual beauty. Being able to appreciate beauty is a characteristic of the inner spirit.
The word prompt for Tackle It Tuesday was 'sunflowers' and my photo is altered from color to black and white for Tones for Tuesday is below to enjoy.
sunflowers live name
pointing toward sun like plants
ever giving light.
from a little seed
sunflowers grow tall, giving
its beauty to all.
my friend the flowers
delight in sunflowers, sweet
faces of light shine.

Sadly, the fishing fleet is in trouble. I like the fishing boats in b&w and can smell the ocean. REALLY, I can...even though I now live in Ontario. I taught school a couple of years in Gloucester - a long, long time ago.ReplyDelete
Photo of sunflowers - awesome....b&w of boats - wonderful and sad too...my dad was a fisherman in Gloucester's hey-day.....I guess you see so much more when your walk around rather than drive....I love the line 'face of light'ReplyDelete
Lovely sunflowers and haiku to match!ReplyDelete
The fishermen's lives are changing, that's for sure. I wish they had more regulations for the huge companies.
Have a super day!! :)
