Time for some moar photos! Flowers, specifically. It's hard not to take pictures of them... It is spring, by the way. Maybe I'll post my rabbit picture soon :D

I take all my pictures in .RW2 (RAW) format and then edit them in Photoshop, because it is so much easier to control what the photos look like - more contrast, less clarity, etc. Jpeg automatically does that for you, but I'd rather work with my photos to make what I want. However, most cameras don't support RAW, so don't ask me why.

My entry for the '50 Themes' Challenge. Whee.

44. Regular/Ordinary

Verse I. Ordinary Me (Haiku)

I have lived my life
being like ev'ryone else
I'm ordinary.


Verse II. Different (Nonet)

What am I to be ordinary?
I live like everyone else
like a regular guy; but
I strive to be diff'rent
should I strive to change?
this taxes me;
either all
or none
' me


Verse III. Running (Tanka)

Life is just a run
should I run faster or not?
I want to be like
everyone else around
just being ordinary


Chorus. Be Ordinary! (six syl./ line)

Why not be ordinary?
I am my very own self
just like ev'ryone else
who are ordinary


Coda. Ordinary (free)

I will be like ev'ryone else
livin' like my ordinary self
I am here to be like them
regular and ordinary

The Fire

A flame in a jar.
When the oxygen runs out,
the flames will whither.

My entry for this week's haiku contest.

The Silvery Lake - a poem - thanks to Tacky for giving me the idea.

Through the silvery lake, the moonbeams shone beneath;
the fish danced along to the visual song
as the rolling waves of the lake beat upon the golden shore.

Minute after minute rolled past as the moon arced in the sky;
hour after hour passed as the silvery lake thrived 'neath the moonbeams
when in the early morning the moon set on the horizon.

As the moon sneaked slowly behind the silhouetted skyline,
the fish gathered at the surface to watch the moon disappear
only to come back the next evening to watch the moon rise.

The Swan - a quatrain - FLP, first line to Tacky.

How graceful is the swan
a delicate creature
wings of diamond
spreading wide.

A swans flight is graceful
its landing more-so
its feet lightly glance the water
as its powerful wings bring it to a halt.

No creatures matches
the awesomeness of swans
whether they be gliding on the water
or in majestic flight.

Surely no creature can match the swan
a creature of delicacy, graceful
no matter where they be
even when they are flying in your face.

Extreme sarcasm at the end. Dunno where that came from. :P

The War - a poem - inspired by 10DPC.

Cold and warm
contradictions
filling the air

Fire and heat
envelopes all in its path
embraces the cool objects
a parasite

Ice and cold
freezes all within its reach
hardens all who venture near
a time capsule

It's a battle
ice versus fire
though fire melts ice
fire will dwindle one day
and in the end,
the cold will overcome.

My first acrostic poem! Fun, fun.

Contentedness - acrostic poem - APC

Contentedness is a goal of mine
Over everything else in life,
Not worldly riches or gold.
Ten years from now I want to be
Every bit as happy I can be,
Not to be a greedy billionaire.
They say, "money can buy pleasure,"
Even though money is a parasite.
Deaf, blind, and stupid,
Not contented or delighted
Ever can money make you.
Saturated and enraptured, and
Self-contented, how much I want to be!

My re-submition for the APC.

Happiness comes with time
After all is said and done.
Profusive in emotion;
Proficient in its will.
Inside all truthfulness,
Never has money gained the upper hand.
Ever has jubulance thrived,
So that we may indulge,
Sep'rate from all pain and sorrow.
