"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

How Can A Heart Hold So Much Sorrow?

I've had just enough time to...   hold some sorrow.

Taken in Taiping, Malaysia under the Rain Tree.

The still water 
Beneath the Rain Tree
Gathered the tears 
Of a thousand drops
Of hanging leaves 
Distressed by August tales
Of wandering clouds 
From a distant land
Where morning songs
Were drowned 
By thundering hooves
Stirring up a dust storm
Swept through the land
Into every home
Choking and stifling
And when the rain came
It was no salvation
Except burying everything 
In mud
Except for the tales 
Carried by the wind to 
The drifting clouds
Caught by the Rain Tree
Into the pool beneath it

How can a heart hold so much sorrow?

    This was taken while walking in one of the most scenic park in Malaysia in the town of Taiping. I loved the slow walk under the ancient Rain Trees which arms reaches and kiss and surface of the water. It is a dreamy place where ironically I more often spun sad rather than happy tales though the beautiful place holds more happy memories than sad.

    Excellent capture and words! Happy Easter Blessings to you!

    Fantastica fotografia!!!

    Interesting! Reading your title drastically changed my initial emotional response to the image .... from serenity to sadness. A lesson in the effect a few simple words strung together can have on mood.
    Someone told me today that there are now as many as 16,000 occupy movements around the world. Don't know if it's true but if it is it's not only impressive but encouraging.

  3. Very interesting and academic submitting! Certainly my personal favorite architectural time period. I never heard of granito, did not know marbled could possibly be combined. Excellent evocative photos, also.
