My dreams are vivid, they’re bold and alive.
The colors run deep, as they spin and they jive.
Often they fade, to black, and to white—
Others appear in magnificent light.
Sometimes in shadows, or a dark silhouette—
They wait as I cling to the fear of regret.
One dream can splinter, into two, even three—
I’ll never stop dreaming of all I can be.
Weekend Writing Prompt #89: Silhouette
Word of the Day Challenge: Splinter
Well… in spite of the predicted rain, I’m heading to the beach tomorrow for a four day stay. I’m so excited! I’m taking along my camera, and dreaming of some great shots… but even a few mediocre ones will do!
Speaking of photographs, I have to mention something about my featured image. My son and I went to the Phoenix Art Museum years ago, and I’ve had this photograph of him for years. When I saw the word silhouette today, I decided it was time to get creative with it.
Not everyone wants to see “family photos,” but I’ve always loved this image so I wanted to experiment and transform him into a silhouette. With Sneakers. Ha! Today I am grateful for Photoshop, that’s all I have to say.
Have a beautiful week everyone—
Peace & Love!
