Poem Please

…darker than gods pocket ~ Trevor South

It’s that time again. I had fun putting some of my favorite dark, moody, ominous photos together in hopes of coaxing a poem out of you. (If you’re new to Photo Poems check out this post or this one and you can read some of the wonderful poems in the comments)

Or just jump in and create any kind of poem these photos inspire;

  • A caption for each photo becomes the poem
  • Create a title and do an acrostic with a word from your the title
  • Let the mood of the photos invite words

It only takes a few minutes and it means so much to me, so please … pretty please will you write a poem inspired by the photos for me.

Mine is in the comments :)

Gills & Spores

Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try ~ Dr. Seuss

the underside of some mushrooms is so much prettier than the topside. The gills create incredible patterns. isn’t this purple one gorgeous?

if you hold them up to the sun it creates some beautiful back lighting

these cascading curves remind me of a waterfall

doesn’t this set look like an upside-down wedding cake!

sometimes they make beautiful spore prints, sometimes there duds, it’s a fussy business that i haven’t mastered but it’s sure fun experimenting …

i never know what color I’m going to get, it’s fun to wake up and go flip over my shrooms :)

I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. ~ Albert Einstein

Most of my circle paintings began with a layer of paint that wasn’t working for where I initially intended to go until I decided that I would use the bottom layer as a template for the direction I wanted to take the new circle idea. This jewel toned explosion of color started with tiny tiny circles that expand out …

and finally it’s done!
