I wrote this poem in response to the prompt “light”. I am not sure how to do ping backs so I will put a link of it on Megha’s page. I am not sure if I’m doing it right. Anyway here is the poem:
Photons, floating through space
At breakneck speed.
The tiniest seed…
Particles or waves
Does anyone know?
It took scientists like Einstein
To try and show
That light is a constant
But only in space
In air it actually
Slows its pace
It pings and zings
It refracts and glows
Insubstantial as mist.
Light is strengthened
and made to Lase
A coherent beam
That can burn and amaze
Light is part of the greatest equation
E=MC2 bright burst
It has to be done….write a mad poem with predictive text after starting with the words:
“This is a digital poem”…
creative business and making the evening
depending on the window ledge ,
the great Christmas angel was really interested
in speaking to the people sitting in the cold room
in the garden centre on Saturday
then panto rehearsal
this grinning cat is getting better
In future in the following year again soon,
the canal system ruining their paintwork
So what happens in the garden, the cat has escaped!
I’m just starting to block the cars in
the programme called countdown
when we first drew this
Christmas tree branches
making ordinary people pay for security guard
But it must have joined them, there are options ……?
Well that didn’t work out brilliantly, it’s difficult to predict what words will come out next. I’ve had to take out lots of @ symbols together with ‘ – ‘ and many badly spelled words. But you have to have a laugh sometimes.
Up until a couple of years ago I didn’t write poems. Then I came here and decided to have ago.
One way of generating words is to write a short sentence then hit the middle key of the suggested words in the spellchecker. Occasionally you have to try a few times if it comes up with a symbol or something completely unusable. Sometimes you get interesting results:
A found poem on my tablet,
what do I think,
So why was it fished?
if feathers cut
So why add sound?
So if typing
I’m The drawing
The quality commission,
The drawing was created
this was very sad
So what happens in the fridge?
I know this completely bonkers but I enjoy the surreality of it. X
After a week of resisting temptations my cat decided to attack the Christmas tree last night. The round, glittery baubles just got too much for her. Before I knew it she was round the back of it and the whole artificial tree was shaking …. Rocking from side to side . Luckily I was next to it as it started to topple. I caught the top of it and hauled it back upright.
Now the tree is denuded of its colourful decorations, left with only a string of fairy lights and a few strips of shiny paper as a reminder that it is not twelfth night yet. I’ll put the lights on again tonight. ….
Hopefully the cat will have no reason to attack it again now the temptation has been removed….
Hiding under the tree, determined to shake the baubles free. Trying to use the plastic wrapped metal trunk as a scratching post.
Every so often she sneaks underneath, now the presents have gone, then stands up on her back legs – her front paws in the air, battling a glinting decoration, rattling the tinsel. A couple of times the tree has rocked and shaken like a fir in a tornado, almost, but not quite, uprooted from its three pronged stand.
Then out she shoots, scampers after a toy, a feather, a ball. The tree is forgotten till next time – then used as a hiding place, scratching post, and climbing frame in turn when she feels like it.
Twelth night will see the tree demolished and returned to its cardboard box home. What will cat do then?
Oh I do love swirling things about, colour, playing with shapes, to me this is fun. Like creating a painting, but digitally.
Subtle changes of colour and shading add depth, adding the alterations together give an idea of metamorphosis. All these can be created from a few apps.
I don’t know what digital art is out there, except for pictures created by David Hockney of digital portraits and the woods close to his home when he was living in Yorkshire a few years ago. I went to see them exhibited at Salts Mill in Saltaire, Yorkshire.
I think that digital art will progress and change. I look forward to seeing it.
