Write.. Publish... Edit... and Stock Photos

This is my entry for Write... Publish... Edit...
Hosted by Denise at L'Aussie Writing.

I am combining my entry with one of my photos. Bear in mind I didn't have time to write a prose piece and it's been YEARS since I attempted anything poetic. Vacations usually imply summer, which means it's hot, so this is what I envisioned.


Dusty odors drift on the summer wave
Shafts crackle under the oppressive heat
Respite found in the retreating day
The golden light waving goodbye


I'm also happy to report that I have a lot more images up at my site for sale, including the one above. You can find them at my Spunk On A Stick site: Stock Photos I and Stock Photos II

  9. Beautiful photo and poem, Diane. It made me feel nostalgic! Evoking emotion from the poem is what a poet strives for. Nice!

    Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

  11. 8 photos a week. I hope that your site does so well that you end up having to increase that goal, but it sounds perfect for now. Wouldn't it be great if someday you were adding 20, 30, or even 50 because they were selling so well????

  14. You clearly have a gift for poetry. I really like the descriptive words and the line "Shafts crackle under the oppressive heat." Nicely done, Diane. The picture is evocative too.

    Be well,

  15. Terrific photo. It seems to be begging for poetry to be written about it. I'll have to check out some of your photos soon.

    Glad there's such interest in your photos.

  27. Gorgeous poetry, and equally as beautiful picture :)

    My favourite kind of vacation is going away from the Australian summer to cooler climes in another hemisphere. Though I don't mind going somewhere where it's spring or autumn either.

  28. Denise, I did my best.

    Trisha, I would much rather go where it is cool.

    Thank you so much, everyone.

  31. Wow nicely done with evoking the senses. Your poem reminded me of growing up in a place known for its wheat production. :-)

  32. Hi Diane

    Nancy, that's okay, I'm not a poet either.

  35. Lovely poetry and living in the south, I can hear those kernels on the tips of the shafts crackling, the cotton pods snapping open. This year we've been lucky to have rain and so have to endure oppressive humidity instead of baking heat. Don't know which I prefer! Found you on Denise's bloghop. Great photo!

  36. Lovely lovely photos on your Stock photos site! Do you ever do portraits?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Beautiful photo and poem! I will check out your other images too. Do you take all the photos?

  38. Hi Diane .. love your photos - and I must remember your 'stocks' ...

    You can see that oppressive heat in the wheat photo ..

    Glad the computer glitch seems to be sorted .. and good advice there too - cheers Hilary
