Terse Verse

By LynneJoyce  
Something quite different for you today, I was inspired recently by Daisymaye's lovely, atmospheric images and wrote poems to sit within them (with her permission of course). Those are the first and last of this set and I promised sandy that they would feature in a set here.

It prompted me to remember all the times that I have been inspired by photographs to write verse and have used those images to illustrate the verses. Some were inspired by my photos, some by photos taken by others.

As you can see from V3 I have been doing this for a very long time. V11 is a good example of this. When I saw that image taken by Garrath in the Mercado de La Boqueria in Barcelona I reeled in horror at those jeans and that prompted the verse.

Anyway, here they are for your delectation and amusement. They were all taken from screenshots so not much to write home about photographically, but you get the idea. Thanks for viewing and i hope that you enjoy at least a few of these.

You are quite the poet Lynne. I found the camera one V2, brilliant. You mean I can't take my camera with me....whatever will I do! I love the final one's verse. It goes so perfect with the image. Almost makes me cry.

INCREDIBLE.. words put to such good use here Lynne
no way could I make a preference,
taken too long to take in the verses, and slowly read
will be back and reread them
great admiration here!!

Fabulous words to accompany this lovely set of images, Lynne.
I can relate to so much in your verses, as deep and real as they are.

And if I may, a couple of lines of my own:

Hold close the ones our hearts adore,
We no not how long we have them for.
