The Other Side of Ansley Park: Just Another Day

...then, just another night of dark poetry in which I live?

 

...shattered dreams
like mental splinters
got stuck into
my sleepless brain…

Shake your self out of the black torpor, VZ...or you might drift in there one day and never find the exit orifice...
vz-nostalgia: You keep giving me life saving advices, Ray. Have you ever tried the field of motivational speeches? smile If not, go ahead and try. You might suddenly find yourself rich and famous. smile

Life is lost, how important is sleep.
vz-nostalgia: To lose life while asleep is would be most important, Derek. smile
The building in the background is very distracting Viktor.

Re the dreams. cut out cheese late at night, have a glass of a good single malt.
vz-nostalgia: :
Bill: The building in the background is very distracting Viktor.
VZ: smile The building is an anchor of the picture, Bill. I would not even take the picture, if not for the this building.smile

Bill: ...cut out cheese late at night, have a glass of a good single malt.
VZ: Ah, cheese... As much as I love this country, I must admit Americans have no idea what real cheese is. What they produce here looks and, most importantly, taste like a building material. They even sell a mass they call cheese in a squeezable plastic containers. smile Per its consistency and taste it is quite suitable for filling gaps in between teh bathroom tiles. smile You know shortly after we arrived in the US, a new friend and a colleague proudly asked me how I like the American food (hoping I will sing hosanna, no doubt smile). I was honest and said: "Your tomatoes do not smell like tomatoes, your strawberries do not taste like strawberries, the bread is a parody on bread, and American chocolate is teh worst I have ever tasted." Even now, almost 20 years later, he still remembers this and tells about it, when we are in a company of friends or colleagues. smile
Re: a good single malt. I prefer a glass of Classic Z. Or two. smile

I like the building in the background - provides the distinction between the dream and reality without being too clichéd.
vz-nostalgia: that is what I said to Bill, kind of. smile Bill and I just have different aesthetics, which is totally fine with me.

I like the photo...
and I'll add to lyrical poetry . . .

then scattered o’re
the untold winters
fixed within
vigilant to retain
vz-nostalgia: What is o're, Ms. Mama? Did you write this? Feels like middle ages. smile as if John Milton wrote this. smile

... reflects on flowers white
moving in in mass requiem
to a mother lost
a son not returned.
vz-nostalgia: :
...not returned, perhaps, but not lost
despite the requiem for flowers
killed by the morning frost...

....for they are to awaken you
from your dark slumber
to see the light,
the colours, the sounds
feel the warmth of...
Day time poetry smile
vz-nostalgia: your positive attitude always cheers me up, Ms. Glass-Half-Full. smile
Give me an example of day time poetry, please. smile
I find it useful to have light poetry sometimes...
vz-nostalgia: light poetry... what's that, Larry? Something like a smooth jazz of literature? Who is a Kenny G of this poetry? smile
I like it. It's the shape of the flower that is happy to me!
vz-nostalgia: The shape of this flower makes you happy, Ms. E? How is the shape of THIS flower different from thousands of other flowers? smile
It's in the way the petals bend backword- like it's stretching toward the sun with every fiber of it's being. Raising it's face up "shine on me"!
vz-nostalgia: Perhaps, the petals were deprived of blissful warmth, of gentle touches, of whispered kind words for too long, Ms. E. That's why they stretch towards the King of Sunshine with every fiber of their being. smile

yes I like your work very much and I think now I should by a new camera and a macro lens I fancy the cannon 600D with the off the shoe flash.
But will have to save first I think it might help me get in with the boys againe. as you can see I am a happy snaper I also like to do some work with my old Picture It 2 yes It's old like me. Keep it up VZ.
vz-nostalgia: :
Derek: ...I think now I should by a new camera and a macro lens...
VZ: Of course, good equipment helps, Derek, but look around. See how many folks use expensive cameras? Now try to recall how many pictures your eye stopped by at. See the difference? smile It's all in how we see the world. smile

Derek: ...I fancy the cannon 600D with the off the shoe flash.
VZ: I don't use flash at all. Nor do I use a tripod. smile Not that it's the right thing to do, of course, mind you. smile

Derek: ...I also like to do some work with my old Picture It 2 yes It's old like me.
VZ: Gee... I don't even know what Picture It 2 is. smile

I think the flowers look like razor blades, giving you a headache, shattering your dreams above.. smile
vz-nostalgia: oh wow... I like the direction you took this photograph, Ms. Eva. smile

Here goes.....!!!!!
Arise with the morn
See dew on the corn...
Hear the murmur of bees
In the warm summer breeze...
The suns shining rays
Seeps through the haze...
Dancing on hedgerows
Wild flowers aglow...
Into the meadows
Of butterfly pillows...
Day time poetry is all around
Even in the long grasses
As you lay down...
To soak up the pleasures
Of daytime treasures...
vz-nostalgia: very introspective, Ms. Linda, uplifting, and well put. Funny, you mentioned bees. I hear them every day. smile
Thanks for getting back to me on this, and for your effort.
This is magnificent.. and what an amazing treatment of something one would expect to be in colour.. Love it !!
vz-nostalgia: Did you really excpect to see it in color, Ms. Gale? I guess my mind works mostly in b&w nowadays, as I haven't even questioned my decision to present it in monochrome. smile
ALL RIGHT VZ - you obviously have not been to the Arizona high country where you can get fresh goat cheese that is heaven on a plate! I invite you...

And come to my organic garden and the tomatoes will make your mouth water, come with me for a walk on Bill Williams Mountain and the wild raspberries will make your taste buds sing! America's a big country- not sure where you are- but you have yet to savor her culinary treasures! smile
vz-nostalgia: :
Elizabeth: ...VZ - you obviously have not been to the Arizona high country...
VZ: Nope, but I always wanted to visit the Four Corners, which is not that far away from you, I guess. I’ve heard so many things about that magic place.

Elizabeth: ...I invite you...
VZ: Well, thank you very much for the invitation, Ms. E. Perhaps, one day, when the economy gets better. smile

Elizabeth: ...come to my organic garden and the tomatoes will make your mouth water, come with me for a walk on Bill Williams Mountain and the wild raspberries will make your taste buds sing!
VZ: I will, when time comes. smile But for now, I’ll keep walking through my own organic garden. smile

Elizabeth: America's a big country- not sure where you are...
VZ: Apparently, you are not a curious type lady. Otherwise, you’d pick onto the Nostalgia About page to check it out long ago. smile

Elizabeth: ...you have yet to savor her culinary treasures!
VZ: Well, not all of them, of course, but quite a bit I did. smile I hope you understand, Ms. E, I was talking about an average American food in an average American chain grocery store. smile

...shattered dreams
like scattered fragments of a long lost
Song
echoing in every whisper
of graceful petals swaying in the gust of
Air...
vz-nostalgia: :
ah, what a wonderful little poem, Ms. Iris.

...sitting
in an empty room
gluing
shattered pieces of the Song
together
with the whispers of her petals...

I like that depth of field (flowers like image field) and the sensation to be an inhabitant of the garden or a homeless or a kid or an insect lying on or into the grass with that home-sweet-home in distance like a lost world or a far away one hard to join but no sad feelings since the country of flowers is beautiful and seems to say here We're enough and we're all. Those girls in your foreground are smiling ones popping their white hues out of some darker mood. I like the story this image inspires. Have a smashing second part of week, mister VZ* and thanks for your visit ~ *
vz-nostalgia: oh my... This picture led your mind into an uncharted territory, Ms. K@ (exactly where I would like to get lost right now). smile
