Monochrome Monday Embraces My Heart

in #monochromemonday2 years ago


Colliding thoughts embrace my heart
Caressing touches upon my soul
Holding fast, the memory
Once upon a time
Allowing the image of dreams to come
Then drifting away before I can see
Today is no different than any other day
Only the pieces of the game have changed

Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Because of you, I come back to post again and again, I am encouraged by you, for the time you take to visit, comment or even upvote. For all of these reasons, I am eternally grateful. Don't ever forget what a wonderful world we live in, people. Let's hold hands around the globe and make this earth really spin. Some days, it is not as easy to see, how wonderful it really is. Kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,


warsan shire

When everything is just a collection of dots.
A matrix over the pseudoscape of a false horizon.
Intellect waylaid by the simulacrum of harmony.
There is no grey area to capitulate.

One way forward always leads to decapitate
On the chessboard you must look up.
Three dimensions!
Are a must!

God gives another day just like the other day, they look the same but the pieces are different. That totally describes what's going on. I like your visuals, they make sense to me.

Such a beautiful flower. Monochrome does it fine justice, but your gems of thought always touch the heart.

This flower photo is really embraces my heart and nice poetry.

First time I am reading you since I joined PHC 2 days ago and I love the message of gratitude upfront of the content. ;)

It's a dogwood flower isn't it? They remind me of Vancouver BC. I was born there but moved to California with my parents when i was very young.

beautiful flower. lucky person @old-guy-photos.

Beautiful flower in monochrome, and your thought is a heigher level, just make complex to me for understanding your words.

Beautiful photography and prose, love it!
Especially true as this happens all the time:

Hello there my friend. How have you been doing these past few days? You seem to be reminiscing on something from the past. I can feel that those are very warm memories.

Buen dia apreciada amiga,deseo se encuentre bien,no dejo de decirle lo bello de sus trabajos basados en las flores y toda su belleza,esta flor muy atractiva y esa forma ondulada o tan particular que tiene en sus bordes le dan mucha vistosidad e impacto a la vista,que pase un buen dia y Dios le acompañe siempre

I love monochrome, I love it, love it, love it...
