    That photograph stands out here and is absolutely stellar! I love the way you played with capitalization and emphasis in the last line….very clever ending to this poem about freedom and nature. Thanks for linking up 🙂

    • Thanks so much C.C.. the photo is from December of 2013.. and out of the 80K or so photos i take with my iPhone since effective use of my eyesight and hearing is miraculously restored in July of 2013.. this is my favorite one.. and i select it.. after i quickly comment on the first 4 poems linked with dVerse.. with my usual routine now of poetic micro-expressions in response to each shared poem i visit with at dVerse.. and as stated in the dVerse comments section.. i was in a rush to get to a Doctor’s Appointment.. and really wanted to participate.. so i quickly put the first four comments together.. polished them a little.. and say to myself.. hey! these 4 poetic micro-expressions in response to 4 different dVerse Nature themed poems make sense together.. it’s almost like someone other than me plans it that way.. but that’s nothing new.. i build nothing alone.. without help from ALLONE including GOD.. and others.. and Nature as ALLTHATISALLTHeSAMe!..:)

        I see you got that “ee” cummings in at the end of your comment. See, I pay attention. 😉

        • I pay attention to I and Thou’s Asia’s X sMiley’s rum blue willow sloan, et al.. too.. years now..;)
          And yes Asia.. i will add a little Asia before i go..
          as time will
          tale
          the tell
          of now..;)

          signed..
          FReeD..

          And ‘i plan’ on being the
          voice of the 22nd century
          as ee as 21st is not
          enough for me..
          hehe..;)

          And the mystery schools never cease as illustrated in Rock and Roll Music
          and now particularly in videos.. the numbers 1,3,6,8,11, 12, 13 14, and 17 are all significant with the dancers as muse of spirit.. with the number of TV’s and the cross of symbol.. as nicely sectioned off in 6 pieces truly singing a background song of sacred numbers.. WHERE 3 moves into 1 and 8.. as getting rid of the idea of a trinity 3.. is a common theme in pop music for A ONE World GOD as Infinity or 8 standing tall.. and these are human archetypes that I come to understand well before I am introduced to the teachings of Aleister Crowley.. who has influences on much of Rock and Roll in the last century and well into this century as well.. unfortunately his promotion of substance abuse in the harder drugs leads a lot of folks who follow his teachings of reckless abuse of substances and end up dying at age 27.. and such as that.. problem with Aleister’s prophecies are they are coming from a place of childhood neglect from a mother who names him as beast.. as well as signs of sociopathy.. as he tortures small animals as a child.. but the darkness in his life does lead to some new insights of TRUTH AND LIGHT that science is currently catching up on.. specifically the fact that lust is directly related to increasing human creativity and productivity.. in what Aleister describes as rituals of Sex MagicK.. where orgasm is delayed for hours in reaching altered states of consciousness for LUCID WAKING dream control of will of future.. as a sort of magical spell.. he was definitely on to something.. but it is an all natural thing.. that anyone with any commonsense experiencing a free spirited sensual nature of human being will find in their arts and creativity in general… Sexy Sensual expressing Artists are some of the most creative artists and that is the reward of GOD as Nature.. for procreation related activities.. even if the Bill Clinton Def of Sex never comes.. and if you are not another alias for Rum Blue.. never mind… or mind if you find this interesting..:)

          Anyway.. it looks like the comments section may be 100 times longer than the poem.. but hey.. with me.. that is still under standard procedure for sharing stuff..

          And part of why I disappear for a while
          after I link as i do not wanna upset folks who have to
          wade through more of my all natural wordiness as insights flow my way..

          I don’t say no to GOD..GOD IS the Boss of me.. with me.. but sometimes GOD
          lets me come and go.. and others come too.. more freely and frequently..;)

          I do it all for the flow.. and the more in flow the more amazing sychronicities
          happen in my life with GOD that increase my flow with GOD more and more..
          and who Knows where that will go next..

          my advantage is i do not let my Nirvana
          get out of control.. i regulate it
          like an AC on the
          Koolest Flow
          setting
          of
          ALL
          and that takes
          practice.. and not having
          a money paying job..
          as is the case
          for most all
          who
          escape illusions
          of culture and go
          to the other
          place
          known
          as HUMAN
          BLISS..:)

      • C.C. says:

        Since you have had effective use of your eyesight miraculously restored, it’s no wonder you enjoy taking photographs so much! Wow!!

        • Yes.. and truly after losing my emotions for those five years.. along with hearing and eyesight.. there is no memory or reference of a smile or laugh or other facial expressions as emotions are what emote human action.. and this is why selfies are so beneficial to me during recovery in getting my human being back.. emotions are the last to leave in patients with dementia.. and the first to leave with me in my illness of the most extreme pain..and truly that part is worse than having the worse pain known to mankind.. as a horrible catch 22 beyond words.. no emotions as a complete numbness of human being paper thin existence is the real hell the folks behind the revised bibles are talking about.. where every now is a thousand years of misery beyond any word for misery.. and bliss is the polar opposite where tHere is no perception of time at all.. fortunately my wife guides me when it’s time to do some of the so-called mundane chores of life.. when i dance.. write.. and sing.. there is no time.. and by the way.. i am not attempting to brag.. but i am noted as a beautiful and unique voice of song.. in hymns of spiritual grace in my Catholic Church each Sunday.. i’ve done a couple of Karaoke songs on YouTube.. when i first get my singing voice back.. as I am a piano player for the church choir for 10 years or so in the 80’s at Catholic Church.. and now i sing with choirs of Angels with a voice i have no knowledge of from the lowest lows to the highest highs when moved by the spirit of all the folks at church.. amazing grace.. etc.. etc.. etc.. IS A TRUTH AND LIGHT NOW.. AND I CHERISH THE BLESSINGS OF THAT NOW AND FOREVERMORENOW.. AS I GO TO THAT OTHER PLACE FOR 66 MONTHS OR SO TOO..

          This place is wonderful..
          the other place
          is just
          the opposite
          of that..:)

  2. X says:

    Ha. There is a FRED in your title. I think this is the fewest among of words I have ever seen you use as well. Ha. Nice cascading feel to this. So much to take in when it comes to nature. Life and death, its a constant dance out there. And both can be just as beautiful. Change is ever present. And its music is beautiful.

    • Yup.. lots of compound nouveau phrases in THere that can be considered one or two words.. depending on one’s perception.. but it is less than 40.. which makes a dVerse record.. for me.. but of course some of my poetic expressions back to the poetry of other folks.. are as small as one word.. like the onenowonemoreeverforevermoreonenowone word as the LOW record so far.. and yes.. it doubles as a Palindrome and can be counted as that special 11 number.. 2.. and 2 is II.. and i am still working on no words with the photo poetry.. smiles.. and yes X.. the music of change in life and death is the song of reality NOW that i tolerate and accept.. as well as delight in constant Joy NOW.. otherwise knowns as Nirvana.. Heaven.. Bliss.. et al.L.ah.. it feels so GRE@1:)

    This is absolutely breathtaking……..!

    • Oh..the day of that photo is

      days of my life.. it is

      PaRT of the
      ART OF
      NATURAL GOD..

      IS SEPARATION..
      THE COLORS OF THE
      RAINBOW ON A SKY
      BLUE AZURE DAY
      IN DECEMBER
      OF 2013..
      WITH A
      SUN THAT

      OF HEART
      ON FIRE IN
      EYE OF
      WISDOM
      OF HORUS
      IS MY DELIGHT
      LIGHT AND TRUTH
      FROM GOD AS
      PROOF OF GOD
      ASALLTHATIS..
      YES.. DEAR IT
      STILL TAKES MY BREATH
      AWAY WHEN I WRITE ABOUT
      IT AS WELL WITH TEARS OF
      BLISS AND CHILLS
      OF RESPECT
      FOR THE
      GOD OF ALL
      WITH ME..
      AND NEVER
      AGAINST
      MENOW..:)

    Kudos, stalwart Fred, soul mate to Katrina, cat person, dancer, iron pumper, photographer & poet, for damn, you lie this one out there, sans videos, with only one image, 33 lovely words strung over 25 lines like a daisy chain over your legs; damn, following the parameters of the prompt like it was so natural, the easiest thing in the world. Watch yourself, your poetic growth can be contagious.

    • Yes.. a runway virus EXTREMELY CONTAGIOUS
      Love FLU IN Dance.. Song.. and Poetry is my ease of
      no DIS EaSE goal!.. WITH all others and the
      rest of NATURE TOO..
      I GO WITH THE FLOW
      IN LARGE OR SMALL
      in loud or soft
      and hard
      or stiff..
      heHE..
      but for
      now i am
      totAlly relaxed
      and FLOW
      FLOW
      FLOW..
      i could do a
      a frigging
      car insurance
      commercial
      as i am so
      relaxed
      as
      FLOW..;)

      (:..PS.. i don’t watch TV
      anymore.. so i don’t
      know if that Flow
      Lady is still
      around..
      but
      i
      am..;)

  5. The brevity of this works so well, Fred–and gives the reader a chance to really absorb what you are saying. One word really smacked me: neveRings! And the photo!

    • Yes.. my teachers hated reading my sloppy hand writing so much that they just passed me with straight A’s as I do good on the MULTIPLE CHOICE TESTS.. haha!.. this is what I do on all poetry sites i visit and is just a casual
      polishing of my first 5 individual poetic expressions
      back to the first 5 poems in order..
      The thing is.. on my longer
      ones.. there are no
      go signs
      here..
      that tell
      people they
      must go on for
      more than one of
      my micro expressions
      of poetry.. when 33 to
      50 are stringed back to
      back like these 4 are..
      it’s just a
      shorter version
      of what i
      do now for
      months and
      the cool thing
      is i’ve done somewhere
      around thousands of
      individual micro poetic
      expressions poetically
      that I can mix up
      at this point.. if I totally
      quit writing new poetry..
      that can literally
      last the rest of my
      lifetime..
      but the journey
      of writing is
      the practice
      for me..
      not
      the approval
      of others..
      as GOD
      leads me
      in both short
      paths and long
      ones.. As GOD
      wills me to do.
      for the much greater
      purposes and missions
      of life.. not whether or not
      I get a like on one of my
      poetic expressionsonline..
      God likes me
      a whole lot
      and that is
      truly
      all i Need
      as I all have an
      overfilling chalice
      to give with that
      and truly
      need nothing
      back from
      anyone for
      Unconditionally
      Loving 24K words
      or 30 something
      like this.. smiles..
      Life may not be
      good for all..
      but i know
      how to
      make it
      fun and
      get plenty
      of laughs and
      smiles from folks
      in real life.. as well
      as grimaces from some
      folks who think my dance
      is not NORMAL AND OVER THE
      TOP.. FUNNY THAT REMINDS ME
      OF THE FOLLOWING VIDEO ‘TOTAL
      ECLIPSE OF the HEART’.. WHERE I GET
      TO PLAY SO MANY OF THE ROLES IN
      THIS HAPHAZARD VIDEO THAT IS
      NOW ALSO LIKE THE
      STORY OF
      MY LIFE..
      REALITY IS
      STRANGER THAN
      ANY FICTION
      AND THAT IS
      HOW I LIVE IT
      FRIEND.. THANKS
      FOR STOPPING BY
      AND A DREAM FOR
      YOU COME TRUE TOO..
      MY FRIEND IN NOW too..:)

    left me with a feeling of release

  8. I says:

    What an absurd waste to have had to butcher almost everything that makes you you. I’m sorry you had to do this, Freddy. I’m glad I read all your real work.

    • i have an employee of mine
      as a middle management supervisor..
      who is a little like an older version
      of the Tasmanian Devil named
      Dolores.. she always marvels
      how i can get out
      of the sH88T smelling
      like Roses every dam time..
      i almost prove her incorrect
      in those
      5 years of
      Hell..
      and she
      does not
      live to
      either see me
      get into hell
      or come out..
      but i’m sure
      she is smiling
      through my eyes
      now.. as I love that
      woman so much..
      it is the ones that
      give us the most
      hell that we
      appreciate
      and that
      is why
      i love
      LILITH
      AKA
      KATRINA
      THE MOST..
      OHGODSHEGIVESMEHELL!
      FOR A TIME I THINK SHE
      IS BLOCKING THE
      STAIRWAY
      TO HEAVEN..
      OR THE STYX QUEEN
      OF SPADES AND
      YOU KNOW THE
      ROUTINE
      BABY..
      BY NOW..
      HERE’S TWO
      SONGS FOR
      YA BABY
      THAT
      SPEAK
      TO THAT..
      AND YES.. MY
      WIFE WILL GIGGLE
      WITH AN EVIL
      EYE ON ME
      IF SHE READS
      THIS TOO..
      AND THAT’S
      OKAY.. LOVE
      IS WORTH
      IT ALL
      THROUGH
      THE DARK
      AND LIGHT
      MY FRIEND
      AS WE KNOW
      TOGETHER
      TOO.. JENNIE..
      IT MIGHT NOT
      BE GOOD IF I MEET
      SOMEONE LIKE YOU
      IN FEMALE FORM IN
      REAL LIFE.. I SUPPOSE
      THAT IS PART OF WHY
      GOD MAKES YOU AS
      WHAT YOU AND OTHERS
      AND ME ARE TOO.. AS
      MY AGE SAVES
      ME FROM
      SOME OF MY
      DANCING FRIENDS
      AS I AIN’T GONNA
      GIVE UP
      MY VOWS..
      NO MATTER
      HOW MUCH
      THE REAL
      K GIVES
      ME HELL..
      WE ARE FRIENDS
      BUT IT IS LIKE WILEY
      COYOTE AND THE
      ROAD RUNNER AT THE
      END OF THE WORK
      DAY.. OF CHASE
      WHEN WE
      ARE FRIENDS..
      AND THAT WILL
      BE THE EXAMPLE
      OF THE THIRD VIDEO..
      ONE OF MY ALL TIME
      FAVORITES AND
      I AM THE
      BIG ROAD
      RUNNER..
      SHE CATCHES
      ME.. BUT I’M
      TOO MUCH
      FOR HER
      TO
      HANDLE
      ALONE..;)

      Ugh.. i got like 20 something thousand tabs
      open on my computer on my ‘personal’ computer..
      time to close ’em and start over.. smiles..
      oh that GodZilla Brain computer
      breathing FIRE
      AGAIN!..;)

  9. This is by far one of my favorites of yours. Cheers!

  10. Truedessa says:

    Am I at the right place? Smiling..first that pic is fantastic..and I think we all have wings some of just haven’t learned how to leave the nest yet and take that first flight…wonderful capture with your words.

    • Ha! me smiling too now.. i hOld off on commenting
      as long as I can in an attempt to make
      it look like a so-called
      ‘normal’ Poetry
      Blog..
      but i
      am coming
      through NOW..
      LOUD AND
      CLEAR..
      FRED..;)
      And more smiles
      in thanks for the
      words of appreciation..
      your friend
      FREeD..;)

  11. kanzensakura says:

    This is excellent work – brief, focused and the one photo chosen is quality rather than quantity. Good job on poem and photo.

  12. Sumana Roy says:

    exquisite lines and lens…wowzers…such a magical image!!!!!

    • Thanks so much Sumana Roy.. for coming by with those nice
      words of appreciation.. and yes.. that is probably
      my most favorite image of Real Life too..
      I’ve lived a long life of 55 years..
      walking those beaches
      for literally
      decades..
      and i’ve not
      seen anything
      like that and on a Crisp
      Blue Early December Day..
      on a Sunday.. Leaving Church
      feeling drawn to the beach..
      the image coming and
      brightening in
      amazing
      brilliant
      rainbow colors
      of Life.. and i suppose
      i will be singing the praise
      of GOD’s Nature to it
      in poetic verse
      of life..
      ’till my
      last grasp
      for breath
      with it here
      or tHere my
      friend for me
      it is my NOW
      Burning Bush
      of Skeyes of
      GOD.. with
      words
      flowing
      from that
      still my friend..
      wouldn’t it have
      been cool if Moses
      has a smart phone
      with him when
      he ‘sees’ a
      burning bush..
      i suppose
      i am
      blessed
      my friend
      in so
      many ways
      seen and
      unseen
      for NOW
      at Least..:)

  13. billgncs says:

    man – what a great beach !!!! that’s soothing!

    • Yes.. my friend.. some folks do not believe me in real life or online that i live in paradise.. both metaphorically and literally.. but at least online i can prove it in documented photos.. on the literal part.. hehe.. and with all the smiles on dance night.. the other more metaphorical paRt.. should be clear too.. smiles.. for those who understand the deeper value of radiant smiles..:)

  14. Ah.. a life so quiet and open..
    to hear the crickets and cicadas
    of night.. and one of my favorite
    Lights the firefly
    ringsIn
    magic
    of Nature’s
    DeLight..:)

    Ah.. yes.. the connection.. value
    of human waves.. and for me
    a town once small is a soil
    fertile in soul of that..
    she grows bigger
    hands fall to
    side..
    i dance
    i grow LOVE
    wherever i go..
    a bigger wave is
    what i hope to be..
    than hands at side..
    no longer free.. the feet
    of me sing.. in shoes of AIR..:)

    Oh yes.. without the biggest
    waves the
    smallest
    calm
    will
    never
    be..:)

    A danger of a desert IS
    never mountain view..
    where human becomes
    bigger than Nature..
    problems can and
    do arise.. for
    now..
    I never see
    a REAL mountain
    Glenn.. i make Hills
    Mountains of woRds
    instead.. haha! but yes
    it’s on my Bucket list to
    do the REAL thing higher..:)

    Life is emotional connection
    to other humans and
    the rest of Nature
    heart as emotion
    spirit as
    connection
    and balancing
    of mind and body
    balance always now
    Meaning of Life SOUL..:)

    Yes.. we live our lives searching for what culture
    tells us there is to work for and collect..
    the answers sing to us in birds
    and falling leaves.. snow
    flake crystals.. in
    sand as well
    as beach..
    then one
    day we
    go home
    and never
    go back to
    that other place..
    and a song from
    Elton John is ‘the
    perfect song’ just for
    This named ‘Home Again’..:)

    Honestly.. it brings tears to my eyes..
    as there is A place inside US that never Grows Old..
    It makes me even sadder as people do not feel it any longer…

    And
    some
    never
    at
    all…

    And that my friend is a song of three
    REAL HUMAN DIMENSIONS OF HEAVEN..
    PURGATORY AND HELL THAT MY CHURCH
    AND SCHOOL NEVER WARNS ME ABOUT..:)

    And 30 lines is too much yesterday.. But OK NOW..:)

    Oh.. the waves of sea
    wash through refrains of heArt..
    where words become phrases of
    ancient delight of
    Oceans so deep
    living as our
    soUls..
    oh words..
    oh spiRit
    oh heArt..
    oh sand..
    oh breeze..
    we sing.. a field
    a wave.. a particle
    drop of life..
    we are rain..
    a song.. and
    ONE
    ocean
    of LOVE..
    wrapped softly
    as blanket of NOW..:)

    Green is the Matrix Pill
    i choose the most as
    both the Red and
    Blue make
    humanity work..
    yes.. we too
    are nature too..
    a hard
    pill to
    swallow
    but one
    that works
    Green NOW
    for
    evermore..:)

    Oh.. all the Mountains
    so majestic.. so tall
    so broad
    as
    Nature’s Muscle..
    so humbling
    they
    are
    to tiny humans..
    oh humility
    does
    more
    than
    move mountains..:)

    The rhythm.. the song.. each wave
    sings.. to human breath
    of in and out..
    a word
    a wink.. ocean
    delight of
    human
    waves
    of
    LOVE..:)

    Oh.. the route 66 of life.. a trail of
    metaphor too..
    what connects
    us truly
    are
    trails
    of
    US..:)

    Weeds are among
    my most favorite
    flowers.. so wild
    and free.. and
    the dandeLion
    sings his
    song..
    i refuse
    to cut him
    early to chagrin
    of my neighbors..:)

    NoW
    tALLs
    THiNK..:)

    Nature holds a key to all of heArt
    of emotion.. expression of that
    as spiRit.. and soUl of
    who we are
    connecting
    in earthly
    feats
    of LOVE..
    to spiral out
    in galaxies of what
    we are inside.. our arms
    swirl outward in what
    we still can be.. we
    are skeyes of
    GOD
    JUST
    WAITING
    TO SEE
    stars reflect
    our eyes
    shine
    down
    upon
    our
    see..:)

    Ah.. the moon of Wolf song
    a lonely one.. reaching out
    to packs of
    LOVE just waiting
    to embrace
    paws
    of
    connection
    in FURRY
    Comfort
    HUGS..:)

    Perhaps the saddest song of all..
    is the one that sings where is
    the evidence for GOD..
    inside.. outside..
    above.. so
    below..
    a Galaxy.. a Fetus..
    a Sunflower..
    a Nautilus
    all in
    GOD’s
    GOLDEN
    Spiral
    Flow..
    so i record
    all of it and
    share it
    and
    sing
    A NEW Song..
    from the Mountain
    of my soUl echOing
    spiRit back WitHeArt..:)
