Photo Poem


The primary benefit of practicing any art, whether well or badly, is that it enables one’s soul to grow. ~ Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

I don’t know much about writing poems but I do enjoy playing with words and decided to call this process ‘Photo Poems’ It’s fun to add a caption to a shot and sometimes when I’m adding a bunch of titles at one sitting, one influences the other. Humor me and give it a try; my next post is a selection of photos with no captions, I’d love to see what you come up with for a ‘photo poem’. I’ll post my take in the following post.

    I think let’s go – said several times with emphasis – is what your puppy is telling you. MOM! What are you doing back there!!!!

    Even with her age, she still is gorgeous. I was surprised when you said how old she was – I thought she was a much younger dog.

    These are truly beautiful photographs Christine, and I love the quote. It is so true, and I just wish I remembered that more often! The last photograph here, absolutely has my heart. Just precious!

    Thank you so much for sharing these today at The Creative Exchange.

    Have a wonderful evening!

    You know more about writing poems than a lot of poets, I think. Your words are beautiful, and a beautiful compliment to your photos.
