Old walks hand in hand with new Strutting gait, a little bent over with age Holding a small hand, it’s owner skipping on restless feet The love and trust young ones have in those old hands Is unquestionably and implicitly strong While the old heart, overflowing with love and pride Guides the little ones to the best of their wisdom
A very happy birthday to you Eugenia! Hope you had a blast.
Throw a party and celebrate life It’s a one way ride, enjoy it to the full Each day that we are alive, is a cause of celebration Our hopes and aspirations, dreams and goals All weave a tapestry, colorful and bright Like the starburst of brilliant nova, illuminate the world Be someone they remember as a kind, generous being
Art(including pictures and images)should evoke an emotional response in those who are viewing them. That’s why art can leave such a long-lasting and poignant imprint within the depths of our psyche
Your challenge or writing prompt is this:
what emotions or feelings get evoked or aroused in you when you look at this photograph taken by Lynn
Remember, the goal isn’t necessarily to tell me and others exactly what the picture is.
The creative goal for all of us is “what does the picture evoke in you; what emotion; feeling; memory or whatever it may be – what does it arouse in youand to share it that with others.“
Week 53, also takes us back to Prince Edward Island on the east coast of Canada. The picture is of an old abandoned fishing dory filled with a few fishing or lobster trap buoys. The funny thing about this is, it wasn’t located near the ocean. We found it at the end of a rural driveway out next the road.
Ah, discarded, Lying here broken and unused Man is callous and heartless He throws away without a thought What has served him for years in faith
Now it lies here crumbling Its structure disintegrating As it remembers days of yore Days of glory and conquest over the waves Days of fetching food that fed many a hungry belly
My heart goes out to this old dory As it reaches its end of days And I feel it deserves some dignity For all the service it has rendered
I found heaven in her eyes As I gazed into those deep dark pools A feeling of serenity rose up to meet me And I found heaven in her eyes
Her love shone true and pure Selfless and generous As she offered all that she treasured With the love that shone through her eyes
And I found my heaven in her love The love of a mother, benevolent and kind Her heart holding mine in a hug of comfort And her eyes shedding tears of happiness And for a moment, we both experienced paradise
