Azure



A is for Azure
Linked to: ABC Wednesday


Dear friends,
As my last poem was subjected to quite some flak I realized that it is not only “The world is too much with us", but it is also true that the words are too much with us J
I have decided to give my readers a break, but poetry being my first love I find it suffocating to live without. 
The solution: I go wordless!
Presenting you herewith a  series of pictures by me, which I hope will be found having an element of poetry throughout.
It is an array of diverse concepts/emotions: dramatic, subtle, imposing, understated, candid, suggestive, stark and abstract in different moods, tones and hues…but the thread of poetry runs intact…
Enjoy! 
PS: And what better place to showcase ideas than ABC Wednesday? I sincerely thank Denise, Roger, Leslie and the rest of the team for this amazing platform J

  1. Hi Amit,
    What no poetry?
    and I am hopeless at working
    out what ABSTRACT really is? This offering just looks like the sky
    meeting the sea? Help?
    Best wishes,
    Di.

  18. Various shades of blue. Wonder how much is the effect of Photoshop. Yet the finale is grand.

    Remember once looking on a class of painting, the teacher asked the students to discern the various shades on a stark white wall. Whereas for me there was only one the expert's eyes could enlist countless variants.

    PS : One should not be deterred by flaks.

    1. Welcome ma'am! Yes, there's no denying the fact that it has been worked on:)
      But I'm glad that the presentation is approved:)
      I am not 'deterred' by criticism but giving (and taking) a break is not a bad idea, as it might result in my improvement as a writer...
      Only the presentation of poems has been stopped for a while, but the thinking process is ON:)
      Thanks loadz for your kind support, always:)

  19. first of all , Why would you want to change , if others dont like that is their problem , I have not read that poem as i have myself been away from blogging.. But still Amit sir dont let others change you.. You do what you love to do.. Readers will come and go.. and beleive me many readers are just readers .. Those who love your work will read what ever you write.. simples.

    But that is a beautiful picture..

    now let me go and read the last poem

    Bikram's

  20. When you reach the letter P, you better get back to poetry....By then you will have had a long break....Absence of poetry from your blogs is unacceptable.
