Notes on the Art of Poetry
by Dylan Thomas

I could never have dreamt that there were such goings-on
in the world between the covers of books,
such sandstorms and ice blasts of words,,,
such staggering peace, such enormous laughter,
such and so many blinding bright lights,, ,
splashing all over the pages
in a million bits and pieces
all of which were words, words, words,
and each of which were alive forever
in its own delight and glory and oddity and light.

Photo Challenge Submission 

(Apparently, Ms. Thomas thought the use of extra commas added to her little poem.)

Please share a purple image over at i Heart Faces this week!
It is so much fun to see the entries and get new ideas.

Oh so many, many things to love about this sweet little shot. I love to see all her stuffies behind her, her cute little look, and the memory of the books they love at that age! Beautiful memory!

Hi Becky, thanks for your comment on my purple submission. I looked to see if I could find yours as well. Great submission....I take a lot of photos of my 8 year old granddaughter reading books and have gotten an Editors pick award with one of them on Better Photo! Yours makes use of color and bokeh so beautifully! As always your photo makes one think!
Lovely!

Loved your approach, the shallow dof, the slightly mischievous look of the girl behind the book. You've managed to put everything I remember about being a child in one photo! xxx
