The Sea of Love

Once more I continue my journey of composing poetry in the form of sonnets. My desire is to find, amongst other reasons, a sonnet style and rhyming method that fits how I wish to write. It is my perfectionist self that seeks to learn and use styles and methods that best work for me. As … Continue reading The Sea of Love

Sides Differ

In continuing on my treck of working on sonnets I set to compose a sonnet that seeks to point the obvious bias and press, when it comes to Political sides, especially in the western world of politics. Also within a world that is all but plastered with Left wing political ideals. there is a tendency … Continue reading Sides Differ

Down by the River..

Hi, Once more I am taking a little time out to promote another Blog Post from My daughter’s Blog. Please take a little time to visit and like her work. Thank you.

In Killarney national park there is a well known attraction known as Torc Waterfall. Most people walk from the horse carts or the small carpark, up the 5 minute journey to the stunning Waterfall at the base of a mountain hike. The waterfall deserves a post of its own, plus I’ve already got a ton of photos in this post.

On the journey up, which we’ve done numerous times, we went slightly off the main path. We went down on the bank of the river and photographed it as it tumbled over stones and in one area you could even see how the river diverted its path around a fallen tree.

I visit these same places so often, but I love trying to find new photo opportunities and observing as the landscape or the river change over the years.

Pipe Dreams Crash

In recent days I had a desire to revisit the art of creating sonnets, OR in the least improving my ability in relation to writing sonnets. There may be some who may not agree with how such sonnets are formed, BUT I move to learn as I write, thus todays poem is a Sonnet and … Continue reading Pipe Dreams Crash

The Lost World of Imagination

As the title states and thus gives away clearly, todays poem is set to imagination. A round about as it were to encourage a visit to imagination where our thoughts etc can flow free from within this almost lost world. Too often today it appears from this side that imagination appears to be something that … Continue reading The Lost World of Imagination

Killarney Lakes

I love exploring and discovering new spots in some of my old Favourite locations. On this trip back in August, we spent quite a while walking around the perimeter of one of the lakes in Killarney national Park. We were taking photos through the trees and shrubs, where we eventually discovered a narrow path that led to a beach. What was interesting about that beach is that you could still see evidence of a fire that happened at the other side of Killarney park over a year prior. The waves slowly picking up charred bits of timber or soot from the other side of the lake, and carrying it here.

Imperfect Musing

Having spend a day without my usual walk that inspires me each time, I struggled to finish a composition. Every poem that I set to write did not match up with what I wanted, therefore I deleted and started again. This cycle of composing went on for quiet some time, nothing appeared to feel right … Continue reading Imperfect Musing

5 Year Song Bird Tune

One topic I have put off for quiet some time is one that is of a Political nature. But I wanted to place the poem in a way that it could easily double for a topic that strikes home for any reader. I believe that poets in history either spoke for ie. were a voice … Continue reading 5 Year Song Bird Tune

Photographing the finer details

As a Dad I feel that I should again share and reblog the beautiful work My Daughter is doing over at her Blog. Please visit her Blog and drop her a like etc etc..

Lizzies Life

Over the summer while exploring a few of my Favourite locations we visit every year, I set myself the challenge of looking for the photos that others might not necessarily think of or see. Where as someone else may take photos of the surrounding Mountains or buildings, I already had some variation of those photos.

So I thought outside of the box. I changed angle, I got down lower, I zoomed in on some fallen petals or the bark of a tree and I looked at the beauty in the smaller details. Bellow are a selection of photos from various locations.

Autumn Rainfall

Sitting in my little office late at night working on my next poem, I was experimenting on a different rhyming pattern as it were. But after settling on a new style I quickly reverted back to where I was most happy with. It appeared a little funny to me that the first 2 stanzas of … Continue reading Autumn Rainfall
