One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you so much Gman for this “lovely” nomination. I have been watching your site ever since I started my blog in August 2012. You blow my mind! For those of you who have not yet visited the Gman, you can find him at, http://thebatamonblog.wordpress.com/. Although The Gman is only 12, he is incredibly talented; he draws, photographs, writes poetry, and is even writing a book. I just know he’s going to be famous one day.

I am following quite an eclectic group of blogs myself…hence the Gman. Some areas that I am very interested in are photography, art, humor, mental health, family. The amount of talent present in this world is infinite and I am enjoying mysneek previews into this amazing  and every changing gallery.

Some of the blogs I follow religiously deal with mental health issues and may not be appropriate to nominate in this case…so please do not feel unloved. I do avidly follow many others that as soon as a new post comes into my mail box, I just have to have a peek. I’m also amazed at how humble these people are about their talents. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do myself.

Thanks again GMan!

“Phoetry”

13 Comments

On the edge of sleep, I see a picture, 

Then add another, to make it richer.

In the early hours of this morning I lay in bed thinking about this type of poetry. I’m going to call it “Phoetry”. In that moment before sleep, try to grasp and stay hold the image that comes into your mind. Whatever comes first. Then add another to it. What would come next? Don’t try to make sense of it; just try to remember for the next day. I found I could only retain two as I would then forget the details of the first one. You might be able to do more.

I’ve always wished I could photograph my dreams, or scenes from my dreams. Perhaps this is the closest thing to it. When you search for your photos (I went into flikr, try not to get distracted from your initial “vision”.

I’d love to see your “Phoetry”. Good, bad, sad, beautiful or indifferent…just go with it.
