Photoetry

by Rosangela C. Taylor

Photoetry is not only art; it’s an elegant communication with the world and with our higher self.

This is my special blend of photos and poetry.

Creative expressions relax the mind and allow us to recognize the forgotten beauties in life. The fur of a cat, the center of an orchid, the craters of the moon, the shape of the clouds, the texture of a leaf, gatherings, food colors and shapes, and all daily wonders that we (so many times) take for granted.

The photos featured here were made with a Canon SX20, 12.1 MP,  a smartphone Samsung Galaxy S5, and most recently with a Galaxy S10, which has a great camera for what it is.

Sometimes I edit my photos with PaintShop Pro, Gimp and other free platforms and apps, but usually my photos are displayed in their original form. The idea is to capture and share what the eyes see, under that particular and real light, color, and shape. What you see in most of my photos is the real captured moment.

As for the poetry, I’ve been writing since my teens. Of course, the style has changed a lot and keeps changing as new experiences come about. I’ve been matching many of my existing poems with existing photos, and when I feel highly inspired I write something new for an old photo, or for a new photo. My motto is: keep creating to remain inspired, and keep inspiring the world!

Preferences

I prefer the fresh air

I prefer to be up there

I prefer the trees in bloom

I prefer the moon.

I prefer summer and fairies

I prefer to slumber on the prairies.

I prefer tasty meals

I prefer head over heels

I prefer good wine,

so I don’t whine.

I prefer the cosmos

over the cosmetics.

I prefer the ethics.

I prefer to write

I prefer to be bright

I prefer the smart brain

I prefer to kiss in the rain

I prefer to be warm

I prefer to transform.

I prefer an open heart

to make love and make art

I prefer your magic smile

for a good long while.

I prefer timeless power

rather than a powerless hour.

I prefer to be free,

free to prefer, free to be.

 

Rainy Day by Rosangela C. Taylor
Rainy Day

 

Waiting for the Rainy Day

 

There is a longing, a drought, a thirst

a crave for rain, drops of hope

happiness in a burst

a way to cope.

 

Rain on this field

soak it, make it yield,

open this flower, make it bloom,

inundate it, don’t wait for the new moon.

Joy of Flying

 

Like Phoenix

 

I’m getting ready to fly.

If birds can, so can I.

Life goes by,

in a blink of the eye.

And if again I die,

Oh my!

Lucky sky

that holds me loose and high!

And lucky that knight,

who once held me tight.

Soaring

Translating Stars

I wonder

if that astrological chart

was ever right

on that part

about my wild heart.

 

I wonder

about travels galore

for fifteen years or more

meeting tons of people

and soaring like an eagle.

 

I wonder

what the stars really wanted to show

how much wilder my heart could go

how many inner trips I’d forgo,

for all the meaning was only inside

no matter what, they were in my mind.

 

All the travels,

and all people,

and that who I adore

it all unravels.

Now I am an eagle

and eagerly I soar.

 

Self-Portrait of a Soul - Photo abd Design by Rosangela C. taylor
Self-Portrait of a Soul

 

Who Am I?

Tropical soul…

Warm, friendly, cheerful…
Analytic, self-critic, thoughtful.
A practical person, objective and outgoing,
also mysterious, subjective and poetic.
Crabby when I’m hungry;
when sleepy I’m grumpy
I feel sad and old if I’m cold.
I speak fast,
I can’t stand too much rest
I’m passionate, positive, curious
eager for learning, for action…
I aim for perfection.
Artistic, expressive…
or shy, introspective…
I like to fly
no aircraft
just a draft
in the sky.
