On The Waters….

Colors shining.

In violet, indigo and pink and gleaming ultramarine.

They dance, these colors.

Softly. Upon the waters.

Upon the waters

 

From The Pond

be still and just BE….

just breathe

until you hear the colors sing and come to life

 

 

sit by the pond’s edge

and wait….

 

and wait,

until at last,

you hear

the silence

 

 

 

 

 

The photograph,  IS the Art

 

They dance, these colors.

Softly.

strong in their silence

Upon the waters.

 

 

No need to “paint it”

its already finished.

 

No need to tame it

its not that kind.

 

No need to do a thing –

but simply,

join the dance

upon the waters.

 

 

 

 

Creating, Recreating, Transforming

 

With this image, I was able to take the ‘not too bad’ photograph and transform it.

Into how I wanted it to be.

 

How it looked in my mind’s eye, for just a flash of a moment, at the time I was sitting at the pond.

And I imagined the colors deeper, richer, with more indigo and magenta.

I imagined,

the strength of silence combined with those colors.

 

 

Sometimes my efforts work out.  Sometimes they don’t.

It is, as always, a roll of the dice.  

 

Isn’t that, the fun part?!

  1. Love the poem and the final product, Debi. The image looks both painterly and like a photo at the same time. So beautiful and so many lovely hues. Agree that creating art that we’re satisfied with is always a roll of the dice. You don’t know until you try and experiment and most importantly go along with the flow. The more we do, the more we get lost and the greater the possibility we feel our dreams and intuition, and come up with something magnificent.
