Pixelventures – Food

Food in Italy!

Going to the supermarket
just to take some photos
people looked at me
and then they shook their heads:
whatever could a tourist want
with mementos of a store?
If they had only known…
I’ve lived here for 20 years,
and these photos aren’t souvenirs
but another prompt for you!

Pixelventures: Morning Walk

Morning Walk

One balmy day with my son I walked
Along back roads past vineyards and farms
Taking photos of trees, gates and barns
Of light and of poetry we talked.
We came to Sarca’s ancient floodgate.
Abandoned now to desolation’s rust
He turned a wheel with a mighty thrust
And wondered of its opening date.

What was it’s purpose long time ago…
Did it save past men from Sarca’s rage
Or feed canals to make vineyards grow?
Unread is the floodgate’s story page.

These shots are part of our morning walk
These words a nod at our lazy talk.

Pixelventures and Poetry: Lost

LostA desert of lily pads

choke the tiny pond

lost is your purpose

your very life

and further on

you travel

into quiet decay

as the water lilies

invade your soul

do you

travel on towards

your silent rest?

Or like a ghost do you now


the lost towards their final goal?

Reflecting on Aloneness in Water

…Water is life
i am alone
reflections in seclusion
illusions of company, illusions of aloneness
dreams in infinite, uniqueness, vastness that is life…

…life is that vastness, uniqueness, infinite in dreams
aloneness of illusions, company of illusions
seclusion in reflections
alone am i
Life is water…

We Drink Photo Challenge: Coffee

Well…a characteristic of fire is a bitter taste…so, here’s coffee for you!

Last summer I with my family went to Athens, Georgia U.S.A.  We went to visit a place called “Jittery Joes”  where they import, blend, roast and if you want them to they’ll grind coffee from all over the world!  (Oh and you can drink it there…they even had an espresso machine that made a mighty fine Italian espresso!)

CoffeeCoffee BeansRoasterNow that my friends is a mighty big roaster!  What we have next is a grinder!

GrinderHere I let the people stay so we could see just how big that grinder is:
