Ode to Cloth

seeing things
as stitches
items cloaked as cloth
 eyes abound
color, shape and pattern,
themes to represent
alterations to make
dreams to embrace

i've always loved those sea creatures that look like parachutes.

Deanna is up early I see. No doubt that's how she gets so much done.

What lovely shots, though I find it hard to see a city as cloth, all the others are great candidate. Of course, my favorite is that last shot of the Pacific with it's dark lower edge, gray waters shimmering and sunlit trail to the golden glowing horizon, and the graduating dome rising round that sun into a cerulian (sp?) sky/ i long for an ocean view almost as much as I long for a snowbound landscape.

up between 6 and 7 am most days. i'm at my best in the morning. the shapes of a city make a great cloth. i love looking at the shapes of buildings for designs in cloth.

Love the jellyfish. We used to see the little tiny ones with crosses in the middle a lot when I was growing up.

Nancy said...

Serena- Thanks! Days come and go, you know :)

Deb- Yes, they are mesmerizing! But the fish with the orange spots is the one that really got me! I couldn't stop looking at those eyes.

love jellyfish- they don't seem possible.
we went here a few years ago...isn't it interesting how so much is being seen through fiber glasses?

Nancy said...

Cindy- you made me laugh!
