Picture To Words Week One

As the rain falls,

she can almost hear it whisper her name.

Drops softly caress her skin

The worries of the day are washed away

Peace comes over her

Head thrown back, arms to the sky,

her laughter echos through the night

as her dance, with the rain, begins.

 

Something new. Picture to words.  For those who love to write and those who would love to write.  I fall in the latter.  LOL  As I have been told, my secret is out.  So, my first entry and my first attempt.  Any advice will be welcome here.

This combines two of my favorite things, pictures and words.  To learn more....click here.

  2. Thanks invsbleman. The words don't always come from the brain to the keypad the way I want but, I think I'll like trying and that I'll learn.

  3. Well, I'm used to giving constructive criticism and advice on photography but not on writing - not since my school days at least.
    I can only tell you how it makes me feel.
    I recall last year and experiencing the summer rains here for the first time. Remember, I'm not used to the heat.
    I would walk outside and stand in the yard, exalting in the strange feeling of rain that felt warm, yet was cooling to hot skin. I would walk around in it and see my neighbours wondering why "crazy Brit lady" was out there in the wet. It made me laugh. It just felt such a relief after the heat of the day.
    This poem summed it up for me.

  6. Your love of the rain has changed how I look at it... But I'll never appreciate it as much as you. I'm more of a sunny day kind of girl. Beautiful poem, and so complementary for the photo. Great idea!

  7. My friend, Frieda, didn't appreciate as much as I either. LOL. She had a few choice words for me, when she decided to give it a try. But, I do love the rain, Haley. And Thanks.

  23. I guess I should have put this in there. I didn't take the picture. Not sure who did. One picture is posted and you write about the picture. It is a wonderful shot though. I've been trying like crazy to capture rain drops.

  27. Liked your lines immensely. Thanks for sharing.

    Your images inspired this just now:


    barefoot on the shore
    walking slowly, alone
    feeling first drops fall

    standing still as
    nature bathes me completely
    i let go this self

    water floating my
    cares to the sand, then to the
    sea. i care no more

    for now while nature
    cries, for this moment i am
    free
