Shadow Shot Sunday...Bent...

so many
mindless moments
blank spaces in
black holes
the time lapse of
futures beckon
minutes float
on coarse winds
circling 'round
thoughts bent
into the blue
of the morning sky
or is it
the eve
mem'ries lose sight
air flows light
raging seas
in my eye
or is it
I'm weary
and cold as
Winter wanderlust
howls incessant
through caverns
into my
or is it in sweet solitude
I await
the calm and
the song
of the straight line
of the morrow
do you hear
the birdsong
on the knell

I will
I will

oh I will


Shadow Shot Sunday again...I think...


Golden West said...

Love how the windmill's shadow makes a sharp turn. Well captured, Sharon!

Quilt Works said...

So wispy, so light, so airy

I love this shot!

may today bring you some stillness in your thoughts...may tonight bring you a peaceful sleep.

the windmill is awesome...the bent lines-totally cool photo. love the blue skies of winter but prefer the blue skies of summer...

it is coming my friend...for now, i'll see you soon for coffee and we can explore the possibilities...

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

What fun! A great shot for today (with all the snow we have everywhere - it's good to see bright colors and fun shadows!

Ralph said...

The modern steel barn is nondescript but certainly well built, The white finish is a canvas for shadows, like the windmill. An honest look at a modern farm, the look of rural Iowa. It is so nice!

Catherine said...

wonderful what happens to the shadow of the windpump!!

Sylvia K said...

Love the windmill! Great shot, Sharon! And of course, your words are always perfect and today is not exception! Hope you have a great weekend!


Richie's 2ts Inspires said...

This is so nice. I love windmill and with the shadow, I love more than what I wanted.

So true... with your prose again, Lady S! Never ending words that touch straight to in to me.

Hope you have a great day and not struggling with snow. We just had a snowstorm here and more snow and cold front to come. I don't know when this come to an end.


frayedattheedge said...

Super photo - I agree with Golden West about the sharp turn!!

Serendipity said...

That's a wonderful shadow!

Rosebud Collection said...

What a wonderful shot..the way the windmill folds over the roof. Very interesting and love the beautiful word. Wishing for spring..ahh, won't that be nice?

Crafty Green Poet said...

I love the bent windmill shadow!

Hot Fudge said...

There's one thing that can be said for winter - you get the most wonderfully crisp skies (when it's not snowing, of course). Your beautiful words echo your equally beautiful image.

Spring is not far away for you and here in Brisbane we are going through a patch of thunder storms, which means I shouldn't really be on the computer!

Greyscale Territory said...

Adore the opening of your poem:
"so many
mindless moments
blank spaces in
black holes"...
There can be a numbing effect when there is too much work, too much bleary weather (hot or cold) or too many worries! This is beautifully expressed!

And in your photo, love how the ladder shadow seems to crawl across the roof, reaching for the wind to move the sails on to other times and seasons.

Our weather is fickle! Cool autumn, windy mornings fall away into humid days and then cold nights! Very strange! It's as if Autumn and Summer are highly absorbed in a daily duel!

But my camera loves it all! The skies and the enigmatic light become fascinating for the lens!

Very very busy at school! I schedule most of my posts at the weekend just to free me up for lots of school stuff during the week! Then I touch on both worlds!

Always feel Sunday is precious time when I feel linked to your world! Love it so much and enjoy this weekly rave here to you!

And laughed that you called me "little mouse" in your closing comment! That is my dear partner's pet name for me!

Happiness always dear Sharon! May your week flow closer and closer to the Spring you love!

BIGGEST HUGS from the warm lands!

Stine in Ontario said...

I like how the shadow of the windmill bends over the barn. It's a peaceful winter scene.

Gallery Juana said...

It was fun to find the shadow in this photo.

The new white paint on your cabinet works well. It took on a big transformation. And Scratchy looks comfy in that chair:)

Beverley Baird said...

A bent shadow! Great shot!
Loved your poem as well!

Patti said...

Interesting bend in that shadow.The sky is cold but is a lovely blue.

Your poetry is beautiful.

What a wonderful shadow. Great capture! And beautiful words too.

Cassie said...

Great shadow! What can I say that hasn't been said?

Christine said...

That's a good eye you have to capture this shot. Wonderful shadow across the roof of the barn. I love how the light bends.

Hey Harriet said...

Ha! That's such a funny shadow! Bent indeed! Nice find and a lovely blue background. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead Sharon :)

What an eye-catching shadow! Nice blue and white, too!

Love it, love it, love it! I keep trying to get windmill shadow shots but...nothing as interesting as the one you have here!

I just read this to my son & he is as amazed as I am, his first response was, "wow! is she published? "
Beautifully written & a great shadow!
Thank you for sharing this.

I love the shadows on the the white background.

Lovely music you have on your playlist.

You asked about snow the other day. We did have snow, but thankfully it didn't stick. We were supposed to have a big snowstorm on Saturday but all we got was a light sprinkling, instead. Yay!


Christine said...

W-O-W, the windmill is beautiful! I love this shot, great compostion and how the shadow is bent, is awesome. We are in VA, the fluffy white stuff is driving me insane, and I'm starting to wonder if I live in Vermont! Thanks for stopping by & commenting, Happy SSS!

Such a "Clean" picture. White building against a blue sky. Nice shadow falling across building... Well captured.

I love the line "winter wanderlust howls incessant." Lovely poem.
Great, unusual shadow shot with the windmill's bent shadow.

Bent, indeed. A great title for this SS. And I'm sure Harriet enjoyed the rooftop aspect of it. ;)
