IGWRT's - Words Count with Mama Zen "My Inspiration?"


This is for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads "Words Count with Mama Zen".  We were to write a 25 word poem about our power image, our symbols, what we return to time and again to write poetry.  Well, it isn't any one image, as much as photographic images.

I started my photography blog in order to gain confidence in composition and provide myself with original source material for my sketching/painting blog.  I believe I have improved in my photography and at the same time, found I enjoy capturing "moments" with my camera.  This, and my son's interest in poetry, led me to dip my toe in and give writing a try.

I hope to soon carve out time to get back to learning to improve in sketching, drawing, and painting.

Absolutely beautiful, Margaret. I've loved that image ever since I saw it on Jinksy's blog way back when.

Wow, this is great. You are indeed an artistic, Margaret, powerful with words, paint, and camera lens.

I really relate to this. I can't paint to save my life, but I approach poetry like I'm taking a snapshot. I really enjoyed this, Margaret.

I love this! Photos, art, pictures, they all speak!

This is neat, Margaret. I often appreciate how your eye is the point where your art starts, in poetry and photography--you see composition, shape and texture as something more than I do, as ideas, perhaps, and certainly as inspiration. (And may I add, your photos are very good inspiration not just for you, but for all of us who've seen them and had the fun of writing to them. The poem your cat picture got out of me is one of my favorites.)

So much talent in each venue that you pursue!! I'm surprised, as it sounds like poetry is recent for you? You write with such eloquence and skill. I've loved your photos from day one of meeting you and of the art that I've seen, this one included, you really have a individual beauty in what you paint.

Great response, Margaret!
