Waves

Cheer Team Tiny Peppers It’s Nano Poblano Day 17. I have decided to share a couple of my favorite photos with you. I love bodies of water and waves are very very cool things to see in action. I love trying to photograph the curl and seeing the light coming through it. Mesmerizing, oh and the sound of waves crashing will lull most of us into peaceful slumber. This was an ordinary day at the beach in Ventura, but the photographs turned out fabulous and every time I see them they remind me of a moment we stopped to capture.  We typically take at least one camera with us wherever we go, and sometimes we take all the cameras, cause well it’s just sometimes what you do. 😉  I love these two photos in particular so much that they will most likely end up on canvas. They have already ended up in a series of our photo art note cards.

Impending Reckoning

Impending Reckoning

 

As I drive past the once lush landscape

still smoldering…

An eerie silence fills the air, and I am

again reminded that our grasp on control

is tenuous at best.

 

The earth lives, breathes, and she’s angry…

at our continual assaults on the plentitude

she affords us.

 

Like a loving parent, stern, but kind,  

she sends urgent, painful warnings

that our behavior needs to change.

 

Like the willful, stubborn children we are,

we fail to listen…instead we push and

exceed her boundaries with record speed.

There are even those among us

who in the pursuit of money and power,

have had the audacity to alter her sacred seeds.

 

As if they could somehow do better than

nature intended!?

 

Her patience is waning,

and time is running out.

Would that we become enlightened

before she loses her temper;

or maybe… that’s just what we deserve!?
