Weekly Photo Challenge: TRANSMOGRIFY
“Writing fiction, I never made use of experiences immediately as they happened. I needed to let things fester in my memory, mature and transmogrify into something meaningful.” Ayelet Waldman
To Transmogrify By Suzanne Delaney via poetrysoup.com
The human eye sees
beyond the perceived image
Sees forms in clouds
geometry in wheatfields
Can focus on a spider
blending into tree bark
Sees the living art of self- transmogrified
stick and leaf creatures
Man weaves reality and fantasy
A horse with ornate antlers becomes
a deer’s fleet spirit bounding within
the form of a beast of burden
Something ordinary tweaked
to bring surprise or curiosity
or fear and awe –
[as the mighty Viking’s horned helmet]
or dog-headed man, or a centaur
Enough to draw unexpected power
Shadow and light are more than a divine balance
When dark forces blossom- beyond experience
the unspoken occurs- the unfolding of evil
from seeming innocence.
“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” Alphonse Karr
Smell of spring by Patrycjusz Kopec. via poetrysoup.com
The snow before honey hued sun flees
The rivers begin to unfreeze
The fragrance of field flowers and bonfire is carried by spring breeze
Catkin begins to grow soon flowers will be pollinated by bees
Transverseing the linen blue visage of heavens is the flock of returning geese
The stillness of the meadow gives you false impression that everything is at peace
But wonders of both natural and supernatural never cease
And at spring time their output will increase
The amber colored leaves of ramifying willow stretch to the sky
They look like mosaic made from oceanic depths to anything that above them will fly
Its soul is like someone would make its cells transmogrify
Into bizarre form that in strange sideline of the mind will lie
The abyss of those forms to such immeasurable depths leads
That absolute counterbalance to make it real it needs
But neural flame those boundaries exceeds
And neural flame fueled none linearity is what this ability feeds
What I enjoyed about this exercise is that I got to play around with my photo-editing tools. I use them for standard editing but not much to change a photo dramatically… Hope you like it.
Have a restful weekend!
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: – TRANSMOGRIFY –This week, your theme is transmogrify. Transform. Morph. Change. Show us something already transformed, on the cusp of transformation, or that you wish you could transform. Share a photo of your human niece transmogrified into a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle for Halloween, or take a shot of some street art (aka, a wall that’s been transmogrified into something else). Or create a gallery, with a series of photos showing a metamorphosis in progress. Have fun!
Positive Motivation Tip: Find the fun in a transformation and go for it.
