Nature's Architect, Fortress on a Hillside, Portland, Victoria, Australia

fortress ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #274

towers and citadels
ramparts and parapets
fortress on the hillside
set afire in the morning sun

battles fought
war rages on
death visits here
still more to come

one strong heart
with will of stone
resolve of iron
but moments late

her final breath
his broken cry
their eyes now glazed 
with death and grief

reign of tears
a rain of years
for one still form
her light now passing

towers and citadels
ramparts and parapets
fortress on the hillside
with darkness do the losses come

time withers
all good hope
but for love’s
illuminance 

five hundred years
lives pass along
’til one strong heart
revived by dreams

a love once lost
was born anew
he holds the hand
of one once dead

knows the heart
which then fell still
now beats again
in true love’s breast

time’s never still
nor linear
where once was love
love’s never lost

towers and citadels
ramparts and parapets
fortress on the hillside
rememb’ring love can’t be undone

Parallelograms, circles and organics, Surrey Public Library, BC, Canada

Geometry ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #269

Geometries of Euclidean beings
Dominate the irregular perfections
Of organic patterns

And I
A lover of both
Math and nature
Am left unsure

Which is
The greater beauty

Is such judgment
Even necessary

Or wise
After all

Beauty itself
Is the construct
Of an eye
And a mind

Who am I to say
What you should find

Beautiful
