Hope & Healing Through Photography and Poetic Expression

Master Plan

Minds churn,
Hearts in huddle;

within a salt puddle.

United they plot, and
Bravely they face;

Their task: to make the world
a much better place.

    • Thanks Meryl! I bet we are… and have faith these kids know what they are doing 🙂 So glad you liked the image and verse ~~ my hour on the beach Sunday. This shot, and my summer header came of it – so fruitful day it was 🙂

    • So touched by your comment Jane. I am attracted to light inspiration, like this… though there are also times I can deviate from the light and veer off into existential, sometime darker paths in my creative work. I think it’s a healthy balance though. As Abe would say – “You are where you are.” So grateful for your encouragement, and good energy my way tonight!!!

    • So glad you liked the effect Kathy — hard to go to b&w when the beach colors are so vibrant, but this one just asked to be nostalgic! Yes — thank goodness for the young spirits who remind us of things we may have forgotten!! xo Thank you!!

  11. I really like this. Is this an old picture or one you took recently?

    June 12, 2012 at 9:35 AM

    • Thanks Renee… no it’s from this past Sunday– had a blessed hour on the beach… new header for summer (home page only) taken that day too! So glad you like!

      June 12, 2012 at 9:39 AM

  12. What a great moment you captured Robyn! Your poem is so great, I like how you expanded the purpose of their huddle to the much grander future, giving us a sense of the responsibility they bear on their shoulders. (I also wonder what really IS in the center of their huddle! Maybe a starfish??!) 😉

    June 12, 2012 at 12:36 PM

    • Oh Thanks KT! So glad you liked the poem and photo…YES – you are right, I imagined these little ones taking on the world in the not so distant future… they looked so intense in that huddle! I have no idea what they were doing in there… wish I did know though 😉 Starfish –hmm? Sensed it was more… they were plotting and planning something as far as I could tell — but what I do not know! Thanks again for your wonderful input KT – So great to have you here !! RL

  14. We don’t need the UN or a summit meeting, just send the leaders to where the sun is beating. Make them frolic and enjoy the day, seems more trouble gets solved when we up and play! 😉 ~D

  19. this relatively small group of friends would more than likely help to make this world a better place to live in greater than the majority of the united states congress and all their associated lobbyists could ever contemplate ….:)

    June 14, 2012 at 7:57 PM

    • Such true words Jim… I was thinking the same when I took the shot on Sunday!! 🙂

      June 14, 2012 at 8:19 PM

      • Robyn, i believe that politicians should more or less become an extinct breed of character …. and i believe it should be humanitarians, poets, artists and just plain good warm hearted compassionate folks that really do care about the well being of life that should help lead the world to a much better condition than it seems to be in today ….:)
