Penning My Thoughts

in photography •  last month

Soft whispers from your lips
A gentle kiss
Is it too much, too much

To ask for this?





I have to wonder if we have confused hardness with the strength it takes to truly give and receive love. There is much power in its gentleness.

Seek not a hard heart, but, one that is soft and pliable. One that is kind. One that is loving.

Oh, there is a necessity in writing, penning my thoughts, journaling or whatnot – for how else will I capture the moment as it passes; what happens if I should forget those minute details, or worse, what if I forget that moment – to be gone like an exhale on a cold morning?

It is singular how soon we lose the impression of what ceases to be constantly before us. A year impairs, a luster obliterates. There is little distinct left without an effort of memory, then indeed the lights are rekindled for a moment — but who can be sure that the Imagination is not the torch-bearer? Lord Byron

And just like that, these words are done. I want to thank you for strolling along with me through the musings of my mind. Some days, I just have to let them go, giving them freedom, spread across the pages, to say what they say and do what they wish. No judgment.

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,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

Those macro shots are amazing! The fine details on the second one is fabulous!

Oh I am sure you never have to ask twice for soft whispers to your heart!

Lovely shots and beauty captured in text.

Thank you for the thoughtful comment. I have gotten away from doing the macros, which is funny as it was always the up close and personal shots I loved. Perhaps as the season rolls into the summer where the abundance of flowers is more, I will find more inspiration.

Thank you as always for making your way over here to drop a comment and an upvote and resteem tip and just know I appreciate it!!

Have a fabulously #SublimeSunday!

What gorgeous shots so exquisite, and the words to go with them fit so perfectly, I for many years had a hard heart, but I can now look back that was a bas reaction to life events and didnt make me happy, I gues sit was a coping mechanism, I can now say I am lucky and my heart has been softened and I am in a far better frame of mind and so much happier

Thanks for being the Ultimate Guide on SteemUSA making the community a fun place to be for all of us !tip

Each has to cope with life in the way that works for them at the time, otherwise, it may toss you over the edge. It is good that you have found a way to soften your heart (or someone) to bring you back a piece of that happiness that once was.

Oh, no!!! No Guide wars! LOL

I am so happy that #SteemUSA is picking up speed.

I have to wonder if we have confused hardness with the strength it takes to truly give and receive love. There is much power in its gentleness.

We certainly believe hardness is a defense and will protect us and it does but not forever. Eventually that which is hard crumbles. I work at evolving and being flexible but they are not easily won virtues. First you must soften and let go. Hardness leads to illness in my experience.

A beautiful and thought-provoking post, Denise:)
