When I started to explore creative photography, I also started to write poetry and the two are interconnected. Sometimes a line comes into my mind when I am taking photographs and sometimes when I am reviewing and editing my images. Both my photography and poetry explore how we perceive the world, the connection between our senses and the world around us and what is real for the individual. I have created a gallery featuring images from distant realms not far away and here is the prom associated with the pictures.
Distant Realms Not Far Away
Our senses perceive the world
In which our thoughts believe
Each one of us living
Our own version of reality.
Our thoughts drive us to strive
For what we think we need
We blindly follow our senses
To our goal, then start to strive anew.
Our thoughts’ desires
Can never be fulfilled.
We endless run from pleasure to pain
Oblivious of the moment we are in.
Unaware of so much of our lives
We constantly miss the point
Leaving us with an empty ache
A void within where questions begin
Then from distant realms not far away
Images filter through
Experienced beyond our understanding
And challenging our point of view.
