It Just Is

the words never written are
perhaps the purist

the pictures never taken are
perhaps the most perfect

the music never played is
perhaps the most transcendent

the freedom comes when
you don’t have to
                                                                                                                                     and love is never a
                                                                 it just is
                                                                 it just is


  1. So very true - love "is" and that's a beautiful thing. And not recording a moment, but being fully in it, is a wonderful thing.

  2. The mind takes its own pictures of what just is. They're always better. Not as easy to pass along sometimes, but you do it well here.

  3. just is

    Peace, hp

  4. yeah - leave it's so much more than words could ever say... love the daughter? she's cute

  5. yup my daughter...she is soooo adorable...

  6. Wow! I would go on, but it wouldn't do that bit justice. Wow!

  7. I have to remind myself of this all the time. Especially the picture taken part. I'm always mentally framing shots an have so many almost-moments in my head it gets crowded.

  8. Love those loves that just are.

    She's a cutie :)

  9. Nice ones! both the photo and the poem Thanks.
    What does that say about the painting not attempted-? expression left undone because of a projection...

  10. So true. Love just is. It is not an effort!

    Love the picture!

  11. Izzy, hmmm good question. I think it is the same with painting, but the point is when these creative musings manifest(at least for me)I suggest that there is always a chance of motives of applause, pats on the back, and in this genre and adding up of comments to skew the motivations of extending to others. I don't, by any means, think that we should keep it inside because of impure motivation...shoot, if we did that, look at all the beautiful creativity(which I believe is a proof of our being created in the image of God)we would miss out on and how dull our existance would be. I will keep posting despite any foreign motivation, whether conscious or subconscious.
    By the way I don't sit around and pick on motivations, I just know the pitfalls of my own
    past wounds and how they rise to infect my motivations from time to time.

  12. Well - motivation wise I came to blog: for the challenge,for suggestions, encouragement- AND the occasional pat on the back. I often do not
    paint, draw etc. because I don't always care for my style. Also projecting how the picture will turn out...I need to just apply some 'program'
    principles, to my painting! Thanks for visiting and responding~


So, you made a little time to stop by. You are welcome any time...speak freely.
