you have two options or so they tell you * door one or door two two ways to enter their boxes to enter four walls constructed from preconceptions and stereotypes two ways to enter four walls designed to hold you bound in their lies * or you could simply choose to keep on walking

Watch the Rising Sun

sit amidst the long grass and watch the rising sun lovingly caress the meadow * golden rays revealing the innocence of daisies as they sway to a light morning breeze * breathe deep the blissful quietude and embrace the awakening of your soul These pictures were all taken at the meadow in my old village last month. I might not live there... Continue Reading →

Harvest

struck with scything blades the king falls laid low in golden splendour beneath nefarious skies as mournful gazes watch shadows creeping rivulets of life-blood seeping teardrops withheld as duty is done It's harvest time here in England, and the farmers have been busy in the fields around the village. Mostly I've come across the fields showing... Continue Reading →

Cee’s B&W: Older than 50 Years

Proudly they stand, ancient stones steeped in mystery, weathered and windblown on the lonely roadside, sheltering stories of times long past. Name carved in stone, black feathers bathed in blood,  warrior fallen in battle, legend unforgotten. Crawling on hands and knees, scrabbling and squeezing, hoping and praying that aches and pains are drawn away by weathered stone during undignified rebirth.... Continue Reading →

Breathe Deep

Breathe Deep Feeling nature's embrace, I Breathe deep. Cascading perfumes entwine, senses take to the sky, Feeling nature's embrace, I Hear the buzzing, the singing; let it fade to a sigh, Welcoming a serenity indigenous to sleep, Feeling nature's embrace, I Breathe deep. This is my first ever attempt at a triolet, a poetry form that intrigued... Continue Reading →

On the Wing

Among the Toadstools

Among the Toadstools Can you hear the lilting strains of the music of the universe drifting from within the fey circle? Let the melody captivate your senses and dance, carried on waves of pure enchantment footsteps flying in an intricate design, as you soar along the spiral of existence, celebrating life and death and every...

An Image of Concern

An Image Of Concern Twisting, curling. A vague idea gathering form and substance. An inkling - troublesome yet indistinct. A hint, a look shared, an outline defined. Shading added. The caress of fear, pulsing worry. Something’s wrong, something’s wrong, something… An easy way to find the truth. A simple question. But… Do you really want... Continue Reading →
