Poems, Photos, and More…

MM sunlight

To distill that gold into that glass….
How softly would the hours pass.

It was almost a year ago, when Dr. Hb saw the photo that I posted, he responded with this beautiful poem.


#8 Dance with love http://wp.me/pSlDL-cYn

In a flash, we met

Our lives start to intertwine

We dance into love

~ Written by Nato (Michelle) Chasing Life and Finding Dreams

Nato gave me the privilege of  using her beautiful poem. In March, I made the “Dance Into Love” post with this dancing Egrets photo.



It was a bright noon day

The ocean smoothed to blue

Reflecting azure hue

The sky mirrored the bay

And on the sparkling shore

I stood and said no more.

~ Dr. Hb (hbhatnagar)

In June, I made a post using the “I stood and said no more” poem written by Dr. Hb.

This Beautiful poem makes an ordinary photo meaningful.


I had a hard time to remove a line of this concrete wall showing on the photo I took, so I posted it as it was. Helen (HHC Blog) made an effort to copy the photo and erase the line and emailed back to me. She then said, “I enjoy seeing other people’s photos like I enjoy seeing good paintings in museum….”.

You rescued one of my favorite photos. Thank you so much, Helen.

It always is fun to share your own photos and stories, but it’s inspiring and invigorating when you can interact and interconnect with talented photographers, poets, and blog friends. Thanks to, Helen, Dr. Hb, and Nato! 🙂

I will be taking a break, will visit you whenever I can. Hope to bring back a new set of travel photos in September. 🙂

  1. Amy, your photography is leaving me speechless. The “emotion” that I am now seeing, the incredible images you are capturing and the way you are doing so, leaves me stunned. Your header image blows me away. Every single photograph in this post blows me away. Amy, you really are seriously good!! Just wow. And how you combined others’ words left tears in my eyes. Phenomenal post, dear friend!!! ❤

  2. nice pairing with the poems – and I did this earlier this month too -((and with one of your pics as well!!!ha))
    I think some photos are destined to have a poem or even a story prompt – or even a single line. other times – left all alone is nice too….
    anyhow – cool that Helen was able to remove the line like that – and the dancing egrets photo is such a unique photo – I seriously wonder how you got that shot!

    anyhow -have a nice break – 😉 –

  4. Good morning, Amy. What a nice surprise 😉 I meant to respond to your messages about the photo I edited, but with my daughter’s recent home visit and then she left, and… and…, I haven’t been back to my old self yet 😉
    I’m so happy that you like my edit. I have said on my blog that I only knew a handful of post processing instructions, and that is still true today. Every time I read how you edit your photo, I told myself that I wanted to learn that, but I ended up going back to my 5 or 6 normal routines again and again. Oh well… I’ve learned to accept who I am 😉
    I love all of your photos, I know I have said it several times before. But, your egrets photo brings tears to my face… I don’t even know why. So beautiful, so perfect…
    Have a wonderful day.


    • No need to be back to your self in a hurry. 🙂 Thank you for enjoying these egret images. I think I took more than 800 and got a couple of good ones (but shutter speed was not set correctly…) I’m taking a 2 week vacation, talk to you later. 🙂

  5. That first photo (and poem) are so incredible! Not to mention the Egrets as well. When I read, especially the first two, it made me smile inside that you’ve made connections like that here. 🙂
