Kim Klaussen's Texture Tuesdays & "Hope" a poem

Hope
I gently kiss
send it parachuting
upon the day's soft breeze
anticipate it will bring
true passionate love
one day, my
way.

Beware... don't say you haven't been warned!   When the young ladies are playing "He loves me, he loves me-not" with flower petals, they can also try and blow ALL the seeds off a dandelion "globe".  It's said that if they do, than they are loved passionately by someone...  

* * * * *

This is linked to "Texture Tuesday's"  I am playing with Kim Klaussen's Textures.  This one is "Oh My".  I used Photo Shop CS5 to play with it:  used the "Luminosity" layer set at 57% and further tweaked my photo by fiddling with the hue/saturation, exposure, vibrance, and curve features.

Kim has many internet classes over the internet which I plan on taking the beginning of the next school year.  Until then, I will just ... play.  But if you are interested, I believe registration is still open.

This is really something, Marge! A graphic presentation.I can almost see the wisp of 'grass seeds' flying away, both in the picture and text!

Nice-! and yes they are getting to
that age where we hope they keep putting off that 'loves me' etc
focus!
