Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

So, it begins... Fireworks

Like a lot of people, I have considered the idea of the blog, and how interesting it would be to have comments on some of my ideas and works (often in progress).
My idea for this blog is to put on here some of my poems, rhymes and photographs, and to write if I feel the need or desire. I used to write all the time, and in some of the worst times of my life I haven't been able to stop myself! But for the last few years, it has been an effort. Well, my son has convinced me that that it's time to pick up the pen again (metaphorically speaking) and get writing about my ideas and life..

So, to start the ball rolling, I dug out a poem I sent into a writer's competition a good few years ago, which got published - an immensly proud moment for me! :-D I supposedly won a £10 book token for it (unfortunately, that phrase 'it's in the post' is still holding good, and it surely must have travelled the world a few times by now - well, I'm still waiting!) It was for Bonfire night, so I reckon it's about the right time of year for it...

Hiya Pierro,
The picture was done with Gimp -if I told you how long it took, you'd laugh! A very young person showed me how to do it! Good to hear from you.

Hey Girlfriend,

I love these lines:

Explosions of light
in the cloud filled night
echoed those within
from adrenalin.

So, as the fire died
outside, and inside,
I wandered away
so I could replay

the fantasy...

the fantasy part really got me....I was thinking all about the romance, how it was going to play out....wondrous!

Hmmm, I think you're right red dirt girl - the ending's the best bit. How often do we drift into a fantasy for just a short while, with little to base it on, then go back to it later at your leisure? :-)

Hello there Krystyna... came exploring, huh?

That's really a very lovely thing to say about my blog, and I can feel a faint blush coming on :-) Thanks!

I have to say, apart from being addicted to it now, it's the best decision I made for a long time... a great outlet! :-)
