An image

(Photography by Jidhu Jose-  http://www.facebook.com/jidhu.jose2)


Hardened, suppressed dreams,
tilting, digging deep in muds;
ploughed, nurtured, watered
by perennial memories—inherited.
chlorophyllous angst spreading moist,
instilling growth—
green acumen sprouting joy.
Tiny hopes seek in to sky—
new life.
I return home with an image,
an imprint to start afresh…



At IGWRT Ella gave the prompt 'wow'. Mine is a silent wow I felt.

  4. An avid gardener, I am ever-amazed by the workings of the natural world. I take lots of photos of "plants in progress" and document my garden in journals. Yes. Soil and seeds and sprouts ~ wow!

  18. ...and you sure have created an image... but not just an image because you give an impact too...a refreshing appeal of appeciation to every starting life & hope for new beginnings... i like very much your header description: " Life is ordinary without the magic of words and colors."...indeed...that's why God created an artist in us...to make this world a lively & better place in every form & shapes of beauty...smiles...

  20. I've seen your 'Paints and Pencils' and so also the fantastic pastel you did for Margaret. That's just wonderful. Margaret apparently had deleted her old ones and starting anew forthwith. I, too am thinking to sketch more in my 'Easel and Colours' (though not deleting the previous ones)

    Thanks for coming by, sreeja!
