BeautyScope 220: Bars

sometimes life seems

to crowd around us

as though we are trapped

inside bars

but often

if you look closely

you will see

they are only shadows




  1. Very true - much of what imprisons us is of our own making, and is just a trick of the light! xxx

  2. I love how you've captured this idea in your photo. So true.

    yep! xxxx

  4. The photo is mysterious - it woke up my imagination... then I read the poem, and you captured the very essence of fears. There was one phrase in Downton Abby that stroke me just a few days ago: "I don't know what will happen. But I know it is better than fear. Anything is better than fear." Genius! xxxx

  5. Did you notice how light it was around your head in this image? Obviously caused by all the bright ideas shedding light all around. Well done!

  6. I'd feel cozy inside some bars. Like a cat in a box :D

  7. You really have a gift for getting something profound across with very few words. I love this one.


If a topic has special significance for you, or touches you in some way, I'd love to hear your story! I will return the favour and we will gently touch hands across the miles...or kilometres :-)
