Rusted Traces

Photo by Glenn A. Buttkus, South Sound Minimalist Photos Smudge the lines, then leave no traceof words–erase the page, till only thoughts remainetched within the heart and mind the rusted memories oflong-ago places, long-ago times– you travel toward them, dreamingof endless roads of what might have been— if I apologize for being so behind on […]

Silence Is Powerful

Recently I stumbled upon an enlightening book and would like to share some nuggets of wisdom that I gathered while reading it. I quote volubly from the book and also add my own observations. Silence: The Power of Quiet in a World Full of Noise by Thich Nhat Hanh exhorts us to find silence within […]

Birthday Musings

Everything is going to be okay. Really. It’s going to be okay. Right now the worst is happening, and you feel like it’s your fault. It might be your fault, but that’s not very important. What’s important is that you remember that where you are is temporary, and tomorrow is going to be better. There […]

Birthday Musings


बात सिर्फ इतनी है, कि बात कुछ भी नहीं। बस यही बात है, जो मुसीबत की जड़ है। इसी बात में, गौण हो रहे जज़्बात। मालूम नहीं कैसे, बिगड़ जाते हालात। बात सिर्फ इतनी है, कि बात कुछ भी नहीं। हमारी सब सुने, पर हम किसी की नहीं। अहंकार में लिप्त हुई, इंसान की सोच। […]

Roth Poetry

“The isolated Model T truck bears the weight and pride of a hundredyears of rust, becoming prairie art and sentinel.” – Glenn Buttkus

Rusty old truck

“Blind in one eye

can’t see out of the other”

Hasn’t moved in many years

Unlike us, it still has its shape

Sitting in the desert

sandblasted by high winds

Undaunted by freezing cold

Reflecting a time of revolution

Industrial revolution

When steel was king

and horse drawn buggies

were becoming obsolete.

Growing old alone

Just like us…

Today at d’Verse, Sanaa asked us to consider minimalist photography. She share some photos from fellow blogger Glenn Buttkus, and asked us to pick one and write an Ekphrastic poem about it. I chose the old Model T truck sitting in the field.

Floating… or Floating?

Roth Poetry

Yesterday, our d’Verse Poets Pub prompt was on using Minimalist Photography as a source of poetic inspiration. “Minimalist photography often pays attention to one single subject in its composition, using nature as its background representative subject matters include geometric patterns, lines and textures, which can range between an apple, a mountain or a bridge, to name a few examples.” ~ Minimalist photography – Wikipedia

I took this photo last Sunday at a local park. When you view the photo you cannot miss the small bottle standing out in all that sea of color. The abstract water reflections surrounding the beer bottle give the illusion that it is floating in mid-air! I love the effects of the gently moving water distorting the reflections from the canopy above.

Bottle suspended

By lake water or by air?

Green canopy shines
