This May We Find (for week 20 Rally)

It’s just about Thursday, which means rally time! Visit Jingle to take part and support the work of some talented individuals. Thank you.

As if golden touched
From a landscape brush
In such moments
Time’s slowing rush

Canvas lens
Sensor remembers
Feelings lend
When patience

Dynamic light blends
Relaxing your eyes
Every color you think
This may we find

Care for a Reading?

    congrats on the well deserved award and the good guess ( sisyphus).

  13. Thanks, wordwand. Congrats to you as well πŸ™‚
    I’ve enjoyed reading how Camus treats Sisyphus as an absurd hero. Your poem reminds me of that…

  14. Great stuff and how green is the scene? Lovely work again Adam!

    • Hey Shan! Every time I go away and then return to mid-Michigan, I’m always amazed by the green of the landscape.
      TY πŸ™‚

  15. pete is a great choice…
    love the poem, as i love to get lost in all the color…

  16. The way the light combines in HDR exposures keeps me taking pics. The color display is what made me try. Cool, glad you dig Pete’s work too.

    times slowing rush and when patience surrenders…excellent lines. I really like this.

  18. Very enjoyable poem! Extravagant in language, but very precise.

  19. Thanks for taking the time to comment πŸ™‚ Glad you enjoyed it.

  20. I like the painterly metphors used here! Well done Adam – you have painted quite a picture with those words… this one springs to mind;-

    • That is a beautiful paintingβ€”such warm tones and color! Wow. Thank you, Lynda. (Also, like how you say it “springs to mind”) πŸ™‚

  21. beautiful capture… both by image and the words …

  22. I’m relaxed just reading this. LOL Great poem, very well written, and a stunning photograph to accompany it. Did you take this photo?

  23. LOL thanks, Michele. I did take the photo. It’s an HDR that combines different exposures of the same image. Glad you like it.
