Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,

but by the moments that take our breath away.

A Wonderful Bird Is The Pelican

A funny old bird is a pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belican.
Food for a week
He can hold in his beak,
But I don’t know how the helican.

A wonderful bird is a pelican
His bill will hold more than his belican.
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week,
But I’m damned if I see how the helican.

Some people surf the waves

Some people lay in the sun

Some people build sandcastles

Some people do their own thing

I hope some people do . . .

A wonderful bird is the pelican,

His bill will hold more than his belican,

He can take in his beak

Enough food for a week

But I’m damned if I see how the helican!

A line in the sand
Etched by a youthful artist
In the stick of time.

Watchful eyes ponder
The lines creating figures
Transposed through a stick.

Finished for viewing
Soon to be swept to the sea
In the sands of time.


Deciphering Visible And Hidden Meanings.   1 comment

Some may call me a photographer,
having an eye for the moment
always looking for the duende.

Catching the edge of life
creating a visual narrative
of what was, what is and will be.

Every moment I capture
starts a journey from
what I found to what found me.

Many layers blending together
shaping a visual attitude
as of my mind’s eye —

Poetry without words,
an expression of existence
in life’s fleeting moments.

Looking for photos within a photo
Catching what others see
Through their camera’s eye.

Having a camera is not
a photographer to be
without being drunk with life —

A passion to do something
without knowing what or why,
making the invisible, visible.

Forming a communication circuit
laminating a soulful spirit
linking an image with viewer —

As with Klee’s quirky angels
where we try deciphering
visible and hidden meanings.

A Chocolate Milkshake Brings Back Memories — For The Moment!   Leave a comment

Image by joy

When I was a kid, one of my biggest treats was a chocolate milkshake — not because I loved sweets, but because it was so rare. While in Oceanside last week, we had lunch at a 50’s style restaurant known for its shakes and hamburgers. Since having a milkshake  is still rare, I ordered one for old-times sake — it was very tasty! Knowing my having a milkshake is so not me, Joy and Jeri insisted on getting a picture — this posting is for them.

To shake or not to shake? Boozed-infused milkshakes could help me answer the question! (See Related Articles link below.)
