Photography X Poetry Create Rhyming Images
Poetry and Photography: My Books
Poetry and Photography: two beautiful forms of Art.
I won't call myself a Poet, nor a Photographer, I merely am an amateur performer in both skills, but writing poetry and photographing nature's beauty have given me so much pleasure in my life.
I like to combine my photos with my poetry and call them Rhyming Images. Sometimes the photo makes me want to write a poem, sometimes the poem needs a fitting image.
I like to Speak, I like to Write, I like Photography
My Books of Rhyming Images
Rhyming Images Are a Combination of Poetry and Photography
One day I just started to combine my love for writing rhymes and photographing nature's beauty and I call them my Rhyming Images. I put them together in 5 little books: my Rhyming Images Series.
"I call them Rhyming Images, the photos of my land,
combined with words that sometimes rhyme,
creations formed by eye and hand".

Bird of Prey - an Aquarelle
Bird of Prey - My spirit free
A flight in air, my spirit free,
roaming skies, my love you'll be.
Colourful in splash of ink,
deep in your heart, my soul will sink.
A watching eye, protectively,
in the flight of love, I can be me.
Downhill to top, our lives progress,
with no more secrets to confess.
When life will end, I'll roam the sky,
my spirit free in loving care.
I'm a raptor but dove by heart,
knocked over smoothly by your art.

Passions in Poetry - A Family of Friends
Marge Tindal was one of the poets I met on the poetry website Passions in Poetry and she became my friend for life after meeting her in 2002, when I travelled to the USA to meet some of the poets I had met on the website. She was a successful author and poet. She also loved full moons and wrote lots of poems in full moon shape.
Marge passed away on January 26, 2009. In a tribute to her memory, I've collected all her moon poems and put them in a book as a memory gift for her children, including my own farewell moon poems.

Shaped Poetry - a Playful Challenge with Given Words
On one of the poetry sites I have been a member of, poets could organize these playful challenges in which everybody could participate. After closing time the organizing poet choose the 1-2-3 best poems and awarded those with a gold, silver or bronze award.
It was a lot of fun to do and one of the challenges I entered, was to write a poem about the posing if rhyme in poetry was still of this time and we had to use an amount of given words.
The words that were given were the following and we use at least one from each row.
- more, before, chore, your, soar, wore, adore, implore
- glow, snow, flow, slow, woe, ago, so, bestow
- lie, goodbye, why, deny, defy, reply, fly, sky
- dream, beam, deem, scheme, scream, redeem, esteem, scene
- depart, start, chart, heart, smart, impart, Descartes, dart
- clean, green, between, been, keen, lean, mean, queen,
I used the bolded words in my poem which you can read below. I used the form 'Shaped Poetry', also called 'Concrete Poetry', which means poetry written in a certain form.
My Cup of Tea
Sunrise in Sanford-Florida
2002 Sanford, Florida, USA
I took a masters class today, in nature's art gallery.
As am just an amateur, a pro I'll never be--
but nature has caught my soul
and in her beauty I will drown,
while she's dancing passionately
in her colorful gown.
So here I am, an amateur,
flirting with a pro.
Sometimes she flirts back to me,
performing a lightening show.
