Looking closer




Claire Burge over at High Calling Blogs challenged us to take a closer look with our cameras and for quite some time, in various ways, God has been asking me to the same.

Look closer. Look deeper. Look sharper. Look through My eyes!

L. E. Fiore blogged here about a new five line Japanese poetry form called gogyohka. This is my first taste:

Am I too blinded
by the vast
to reach the details of His majesty
missing yet another chance
awestruck to worship

I am also linking this post to One Shot Wednesday. Stop by and read the poetry that others have left behind.

I've been digging all the gogyohka One Shots I've been finding today.

And, speaking of taking a closer look.

Beautifully picturised. I am, from the time I have got involved with "On Shot Poetry", learning different variations of Haiku, Tankha etc and this is still a new style.

Om Namah Shivaya.

more than anything, the colours you have captured move me, draw me in and keep me on the page.

thank you for zooming so well.

Isn't this poetry fun? It would also be fun to be a bee and pollinate those yummy flowers. What a job delightful job it would be.
