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!

I love rainbows. You have such a talent for these pics.

I love the poem also, is this personal?

Hi Brian - yesterday you had a disappearing comment...Today you'd managed to leave a comment even before I fully published - very impressive!

Thanks for the compliment - I only snap the pictures... they're already there.

The poem? No, I don't think the ending is personal, but I have lost a lot of people in my life (heck, who hasn't!), so I suppose from that point of view it could be...

Hi Annelisa,
love the double rainbow,
you might just do "click"
but you sure see, yo know
how the moment to pick

And no, I won't say anymore
I'm not out to outperform
your poem and words galore
Glad to hear there is more
than sadness, words form

Here's looking at yah!
Here's smiling at yah!

Hello - Lovely rainbow. They always make me feel happy, but the poem's not so cheerful...

Quasar! Quasar! You out-do yourself with that one! I was going to use some of the other pictures, where the second rainbow's really clear, but I couldn't possibly put so many pictures up! :-)

Here's smiling back at yah!

Hello again Topchamp - lovely to see you again! I was going to come and say thanks for the donation - I only realised it was there later! It all makes a difference...

No, the poem isn't so cheerful. It actually makes me quite depressed reading it here... I'm clearing out all my old stuff, from my 'poetry bag' so I can start some new ones. Seems to be working - I've written a few since the beginning of this blog a month ago!

But Rainbows - you are close to my favouritist place in Scotland - Skye. I used to holiday there, whilst I lived in Stirling, and I always thought of it as the 'Isle of Rainbows'! :-)

You are modest, Annelisa. Raising a camera to one's eye to click off a snapshot is one thing. The ability to capture an image in a photograph is a gift.

A quick note to let you know, your link has been posted at For Your Success. We're pleased to be working with you.

What magic to have a rainbow in amongst the dark clouds! Very symbolic! Out of the darkness comes...

Diane is my wife. Her blog name is FelineFrisky at The Rat's Nest.

Dewy is one of my multiples that lives in me. I just realized on Sat. that I am a multiple.

My friends already knew that and that Dewy was a real woman inside me.

Hope you have a great day. :)

I love the poem! And the rainbow too. Wow, you managed to capture two of them, the other one which colour is in reverse order. =) Beautiful!

the rainbow pics are awesome..the lower one is a bit unusual..at a momemt's glance, it feels as though it is curving up the line of the clouds intot he heaves(just an opthal illusion) :))

this poem that you write
like life, sounds familiar
do i read soemthing here
perhaps your pain i feel
i think it is just life.

Hello Coach! Long time no see!

Thanks for your kind words. Still feel there would be no photograph if there wasn't a good subject in the first place...

Thanks for the link-up... I hope the venture is a successful one!

MOI - I nearly missed this one (like you did the other day?), but my youngest daughter said when we got home, "Bet there's a rainbow somewhere!"

It wasn't until 5 minutes later I walked into the garden and saw the most perfect rainbow ever! Rushed upstairs, by which time one had become two. For you double-rainbow lovers, I've tagged one on the end, which isn't such a good photo, but has a lovely pair of rainbows!

Got it, Brian! - it was a little confusing, but it's all clear now. It doesn't sound like your DK was such a surprise to you - always better to know every aspect of yourself. Guess we all have masculine and feminine sides to us, and your personalities have simply found a place for themselves! And it's better for all elements of personalities to be able to express themselves too - seems like blogging is the perfect place for this! :-)

Hey F Kid! If you're visiting, you're not writing! Get back to it - you still got 40 000 to go!! :-D

Mystic -
The photo you're talking about(which was bottom, but is now second from bottom, now I added another photo) looked like a rainbow laser coming out of a spaceship to me (too many Star Wars films :-) ), but I see what you mean!

yeah, and the pain is just part of life...

Annelisa..oh my what absolutely lovely pictures..rainbows are one of my favoritist(maddisim) things..:)You captured them beautifully.and it reae to see a double one...luck will flow your way. This poem is so true to every one who reads it..a reminder that we all have left or been left in one way or another concerning someone we love. I know you do not celebrate the same holiday as this but I still would like to wish you a wonderful day of Thanksgiving..take care..m

Thanks Madd!

Would you believe, I took a grid reference for the end of the second rainbow - it was so very clear - but when I went along with my spade, I met the farmer, who was carrying a shovel. He told me from where he'd been standing, the rainbow's end had been two fields further.

Together we went on the quest for the pot of gold...

All evening and all night we wandered the land, but no gold did we see. All morning and all day we wandered the land, but the only gold was in the trees; the leaves fallen to the ground; and the bushes where the red sunlight shone horizontally through the branches...

We sat on a fallen tree stump, for a moment's reflection, and saw that we were looking in the wrong place. The rainbow wasn't in the field. It was in everything. The autumn was providing all the colours in smaller pieces, and jumbling them up to scatter in the wind...

...and that moment was pure gold.

:-) Happy thanksgiving Madd, and everyone else!

Thank you so much annelisa for posting another double rainbow picture. The cloud this time didn't obscure the rainbow =). Thanks!!! =D

You're welcome, Frolicsome Kid! Pretty, huh? Glad you liked it :-)

I heared you can invert those pictures. Why dont you try it?

Funnily enough, anonymous, that's exactly what I did for my daughter - she got a lot of pleasure from it! :-)
