Apologies to anyone who accidentally got left out, whose @ call sign didn’t work, those who got pinged twice (three times?), &c., &c.! I repeat: All are invited whether listed above or not! Hope to see you all on the 23rd!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you all – and since we’re not meant to publish loads of pictures here in order not to slow the site down, here’s a link to my Christmas photo post:

Christmas Lights on the Cutty Sark

This forum seems a bit dead recently…

…so in addition to wishing you all a merry Christmas, this is a wake-up call – in case any of you would like to continue here, it might be a good new year’s resolution to return here to post and chat again.

So I hope you will forgive me for tagging you all (I will not keep doing this):

If I missed anybody out, my apologies, you all were meant to be included!

Celebration (Photo Prompt – 9 June)

Calling all photographers… that is:

  • people who fancy themselves photographers…
  • people who are photographers but don’t fancy themselves…
  • people who fancy becoming photographers…
  • people who… you got it!

Calling also all and sundry non-photographers who have something to say upon the subject of CELEBRATION – being this week’s prompt – in any shape or form, let it be a haiku or cocktail mixing instructions (as long as you’re accompanying it with a photo, obviously)!

To take part in Shutterbug Showcase:
The prompt is “valid” for a week (from Thursday 9 June to Wednesday 15 June).
Please publish your post upon the theme of celebration during this time period on your own blog and leave a link to your post in the comments. Please also visit other participating members’ posts to give feedback!

For inspiration:

The Union Jack flying above the village pub, Cookham, England

England’s gone all patriotic in the last couple of weeks with Union Jacks hanging all over the place: one of the two yearly birthdays of the Queen is being celebrated… (Does this mean she gets two sets of presents?!)

CHANGES TO SHUTTERBUG SHOWCASE:

  1. To make all our lives easier (and provide a little incentive for doing the photo prompt post), from now on whoever does the Thursday photo prompt, will choose the prompt for the week after. The June 16th photo post will be done by @niyati16 – your prompt is: Through the Window.
  2. To help out @piyushavir, I’ve taken over the scheduling of Shutterbug Showcase for July & August. Please tag me, @arwen1968, if you want to nominate yourselves for doing the Thursday photo prompts. Thank you.
    The available dates for July are: 7 / 14/ 21 / 28 July
    The available dates for August are: 4/ 11 / 18 / 26 August

Happy blogging! 🙂

Right Now, Right Here, I’m Alive!

Eugenia&Robert

May this agony free me forever

Called by the wind, we fluttered.
Droopy as a dying cactus blossom

Lovely, serene, looking out for more.

Perplexed eyes, cupped hands, dried lips.

Lights shine bright, chasing out darkness

Perfect imperfections galvanized her infinite smiles.

Calm settles comfortably in the silence

Steps taken by faith, where now?

On Repeat:Work, play, write, live!

Thanksgiving approaches, eat well and wisely!

Darkness of drizzling dreary damp days

Joey doesn’t share food. Me too.

Speaking with a mouthful of ashes

Remember the poor and the afflicted.

Forget all worlds, come to me.

Right now, right here, I’m alive.

Poetry Corner Nine Invites You!

Dear Friends 🙂

Week after week you all are supporting this event. I thank Garth for his idea and all of you for the support. I am doing blogging 101 course so I would make this post sticky and keep tagging you people for invites instead of doing an invite post everyday.

1. Please send your 6 words entry to : thinkerv0@gmail.com
2. There is no theme.

Thank you very much 🙂

Love and light ❤

Anand 🙂

Live Before You’re Afraid To Die!

Would she ever have imagined this?

Quietly, patiently waiting for falling leaves,

A passion that consumes cannot last;

Not ahead, not behind, come beside!

After all, a dream is only an illusion;

Loathe thee loathing and not the person;

 

Was happy, then I wanted more!

I am Baked Alaska, cold inside.

I just want to feel loved;

She could not believe her eyes…

Pumpkin coffee, autumn leaves, sapphire sky;

Beautiful connections with strangers you meet!

 

Crash, Splash the world fell down,

Blanket the cold feed the poor!

Every time we meet, he smiles,

Embracing change is scary and exciting!

Love? No. Only delusions. Chasing illusions.

 

Ceaseless wonders reopen the mind’s eye!

Her’s wasn’t a happily ever after!
