Poetry – Trees


Poetry through symbolism can convey a very strong message, this is a great example.

God made them very beautiful, the trees;
He spoke and gnarled of bole or silken sleek
They grew; majestic bowed or very meek;
Huge-bodied, slim; sedate and full of glees.
And He had pleasure deep in all of these.
And to them soft and little tongues to speak
Of Him to us, He gave wherefore they seek
From dawn to dawn to bring unto our knees.
Yet here amid the wistful sounds of leaves,
A black-hued gruesome something swings and swings;
Laughter it knew and joy in little things
Till man’s hate ended all. -And so man weaves.
And God, how slow, how very slow weaves He –
Was Christ Himself not nailed to a tree?

Heads Up: Interesting Blogs


Hi everyone,

This is my review of discoveries for ‘Heads Up!’

My five discoveries of blogs I liked for a variety of reasons are listed here each fortnight.  My choices are totally on a personal basis because they resonated with me on some level.  Either they made me think, made me laugh, gave me an idea for a post, or I simply loved their creativity. Some blogs I have come across through my other blog which connects with a different audience to this one.

Posts I feel should be in Blogging Life Line will not be mentioned here.

1. J Regis This blog belongs to a young lady who has been successful at many things but always felt there was a need to write a book. This post reflects some of the challenges she faces as she decides to follow what God says in her life rather than what her situation is saying to her. Interesting for anyone desiring to write their first book based on their own life.

2. PI Photography & Fine Art Melissa takes some truly beautiful photos. A visual feast.

3.  Damyanti   Damyanti has been writing for many years, but I find her posts engaging, hope you do too.

4.  ThePublicBlogger I just like how this guy writes, what can I say:-)

5.  The Retireediary  More beauty for the eyes.  When there are so many amazing places in the world to see – photographs are such a great window, capturing a moment in time, giving you a glimpse of something different.  Michael is retired and based in Hong Kong but he has a great eye for photos.

Hope you find these blogs as interesting as I have. Do let me know?

Until next time, Be the change you want to be!

Heads Up: Interesting Blogs


Hi everyone,

This is my fortnightly review of discoveries for ‘Heads Up!’

My five discoveries of blogs I liked for a variety of reasons are listed here each fortnight.  My choices are totally on a personal basis because they resonated with me on some level.  Either they made me think, made me laugh, gave me an idea for a post, or I simply loved their creativity. Some will be blogs I have followed for a while or they are new discoveries.  Posts I feel should be in Blogging Life Line will not be mentioned here.

1. Dewittswild  If you love animal photography of big animals, elephants, zebras, lions and South African sunsets then this is an interesting blog to visit.

2.  Madamsabi’s Blog  Is a new find. An inspirational blog using stories and poetry.

3.  Sheek186 an encouraging blog but also tackles things others may choose to avoid or discuss quietly rather than putting it out there.

4.  A Small Act Of Kindness Can Bring A Smile to Million Of Faces  Certainly the longest title I have seen on a blog so far. But full of interesting nuggets of kindness and inspiration. Certainly an interesting read.

5.  Ray Ferrer – Emotion On Canvas  This is one of the very first blogs I followed.  I just love his artwork, which I think speaks for itself.

Hope you find these blogs as interesting as I have. Do let me know?

Until next time, Be the change you want to be!

1. Cancerkillingrecipie  I only found this blog because Oneanna65 found me. Her blog is pretty special. As usual, I like people to make up their own minds, I just point people in the blogs direction. But the title is an indicator and there is much to read on this sight.  Happy reading everyone.

2.  Images+Words From Bluerock  This blog appealed to my creative side, with its many images and photographs. It’s a bit of an Aladdin’s cave:-)

3.  Joshidaniel When I found this blog and this photo all I could say was Wow!!

4.  Maverick Bird Is a beautiful travel blog. Interesting places captured by an interesting lady.

5.  Mommygolightly This post was Freshly Pressed. As a mum I could relate to it and I liked the sense of humour. Go read.

Hope you find these blogs as interesting as I have. Do let me know?

Until next time, Be the change you want to be!

Ok, so thought I would start using my own photograph’s on my blog now, instead of just keeping them on my hard drive. This shot was taken on Brighton Beach. I am very much a newbie and this was only my second Photography workshop, which I totally loved!
