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!

(U) Ubiquitous

I have to say, before anything else, I've just seen the most amazing picture ever!! It's just such an unusual shot of a kingfisher diving into the water and catching a fish - so worth having a look!

I've just looked to see how I'm doing with putting my Monsters 4 Bed kiddie rhymes up, and found that I've only put 11 out of the 26 up so far (I thought I must've done just about all of them by now! :-) ) Some of them I'm reluctant to put forward - being as they're just soooo ghastly and gross! [worse than the Zombie Necropolis one :-D ] but we'll see...

I was thinking of writing a poem or rhyme for today, within a one hour time limit, but my son's off school unwell and that might have to be scuppered as well. Again, we'll see.... maybe later.

So, having delved into the ol' poetry bag again, I've pulled out my 'U' - Ubiquitous. It's a short one, and I'm going to dedicate it to my new blogging friend Quasar9, who loves to delve into the unseen....

Afternon Annelisa,

Just cruising around since I have the day off and waiting to eat. No turkey though, I am vegetarian. Can't speak for Dewy though. She was a shock to me, tomorrow is the big unveiling day since my others are now ubiquitous.

Love the poem.

Have a good day, I have to go back to work tomorrow.

So the lady is like a Rainbow
neither here, neither there
yet can ve seen everywhere
not solid, yet so very real
subliminal, does she reveal
gentle touch how she does feel

Hope you are having a nice day
Here's looking at yah!
Here's smiling at yah!

Neat to do the one hour poem challenge. Interestingly enough, some of my best poems I've done in about 10 or 15 minutes. For poetry Fri., once I did a challenge to write a poem on doors in 10 min.(It might still be in my early archives)I had a creative writing professor that had us write a 30 second poem on our hand by just staring at it and writing 3 things about it that described it...Mine was on that blog..I can't remember it!!!
I love teaching writing to kids of all ages.

Hi Brian - hope you're enjoying your cruising! Well, I expect by now you might well be eating (nut roast?) I'd like to come over today and see how you and Dewy and Feline Frisky all are, but it'll probably have to wait until tomorrow, as I've been up half the night watching over ill son.

Another one Quasar? You're getting to be quite the expert at rhyming comments! :-) I think I like yours better...

Mother of Invention - 30 seconds? That must've been the biz! And right to the point...

Sometimes I do just right down a 'quickie' - one that says something that is better said in poetical form than any other. But I'm never very confident about them... and they tend to get stuffed in a drawer somewhere (ehm... I have a heck of a lot of drawers they can hide in! :-) ) So, I tend to write more rhyming stuff - partly because I enjoy writing within such a structure... it stretches me to get the lines right, and to think of what I want to say within the boundaries of the lines ends before and after.

Some might say too structured, but that's how I like it. For me. I go on the basis that 'I write because I enjoy writing, so I'll write the way I want to!' :-D No point trying to cram yourself into someone else's style, is there? Though fun to try out sometimes...
I do enjoy reading others' free-flow poems...

Must come and see if I can find your poem on doors... sounds riveting! :-)
(Bet you mentioned how a door's not really a door when it's ajar? :-)

Talking of doors, wonder how your roof's coming along?

No, I'll visit tomorrow... I better get sleep now!

Roof is done! But darn, that one roofer was pretty cute and now they're gone!!

I've never heard "scuppered" before! Means scrapped or kyboshed?

The poem for tomorow on losing poundage, (!)I thought of in about 2 minutes of my walk and I scratched it down when I got home, adding 2 couplets. It's just silly, quick and fun!

Hope you son's better and that you weren't up ALL night!

:-D You had a cute roofer? :-) So, maybe you didn't mind all the noise and disruption so much!

I think, originally, "scuppered" was the word for when a boat overturns. It had something to do with the water drains at the side of the boat (the scupper). I think what it meant was there was just too much water to drain off (being over-turned an' all :-) )

The word is usually used over here to mean 'wrecked' / messed up/ ruined/ overturned... that kind of thing. Funny, I've always used it, but not really thought about it before.

Son's not so bad now he's being dosed up with medicines, thanks! Sleep was ok...

I shall pop over later to see your latest on losing poundage! Have a good one (day that is)!
