"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?

A Little Pebble To Create A Tsunami

I've has just enough time to...   throw a little pebble to create a tsunami

Taken while cruising Tanah Merah lake in Taiping, Malaysia.

I told them if -
I throw a little pebble into the sea
It could create a tsunami
But they would not believe me

They say -
Crabs walking sideways cannot learn to walk straight
The dodo birds cannot sprout wings and take to the sky
The lemmings who stop the march will get run over
Why rock the boat when it is still over the water?
Which ostrich can stop running from its own shadow?
Who will be the fool to shout “broken arrow”?
The silent men may get passage to the ivory tower
The rest will be used as cannon fodder
Courage cannot put a meal on the table
Suicide can be done without a knife
Go shoot yourself in the head
When you’re done shooting the toes
You will not live past midnight
Because you will not listen

The hollow men speak without moving their lips
Together all at once disharmoniously

I threw my little pebble out into the sea
Waiting for the waves
To blow them over!

    This was taken in the Tanah Merah (or Red Earth) Lake in Taiping, Malaysia. I took this shot of the boat as it raced ahead towards its destination. I like the waves it created and thought about the waves that bring changes whether good or bad. I've met a lot of hollow men in my working life and sometimes I do really wish I could throw a pebble into the sea to create a wave to wash them all away. That is kind of a wishful thinking but kind of fun thinking about it. Guess I've a nasty streak in me :D

    Excellent timing and exposure.
    Have a fun weekend!

    Judging by the wake, it looks like he's making some serious headway across the water. You are a very visual person and so am I so I can relate to your thinking. :)

  2. This is a very beautiful poem, it made me think about many things. Indeed, little things can radically change our world, and a small stone can give birth to a tsunami.

    Beautiful lakescape and scene fabulously balanced and captured,Thou !!!
    Just a little boat disturbed the still waters of the lake and gave rise to a fluctuating wave, to an outburst of deep thoughts.
    Loved the streak of wildness in you,the tsunami in your soul ... and felt sympathy for the shallow blokes, the flightless creatures ...
    Great put up of photo-poetic nature,my dear friend !!!!

    a pebble is not always producing a great thing :))
    but this shot is very beautiful taken!
