I travel, when I can. Write, when inspired. Photograph, where there's beauty. Make films, for a living. Oh, and I play a decent didjiridu.

Disorder ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #312

I have convinced myself
That chaos follows me
As if a companion
Or a stalker I can not shake

Until today’s revelation
That it is merely disorder
Of my own orderly creation

Like the roiling waters
Left in the wake

Of a vessel underway

And I am always underway
Though always looking back

Focused on the havoc
Left behind
In the lives of self and others

Manufacturing in my mind
The spiritual narrative
Of a Job-like tragedy
That relieves me of responsibility

Sunset Glitterbomb, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Petals ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #310

Perched
Beneath a sky
Of cobalt and lavender

While the dying sun
Throws glitter bombs
Off glass towers

But all I can see
Are three dots
Racing on the display

“Jason is typing”

This Schrödinger’s mobile
Holds two truths
Like petals pulled from a daisy

Each dot flashing in turn
He loves me
He loves me not

Both are true
Until the dots stop
To reveal the nature

Of the final petal
