stops along the journey
Fo Gawd Sakes, man--WASH yo HANDS!
creations moment, must have been a blast....Brilliant line my friend :)
Big Bang with small spaces. Love it--and could never do it. I feel good when I come in under 160 lines. ;_)
Evidence of experience, indeed!
Beautiful picture of the creator perfect read minutes before going to church this morning. :)
It always feels nice to create...:-)
oh yes - it must have been a blast and i like that we still hear the echoes of laughter and wonder each time we touch something new and our fingerprints mingle with his.. laughing at hedge's comment...she's awesome..
love this.Deep and fundamental in many ways yet expressed in a few words.
I love this, seeing creation as a blast full of wild laughter.The idea of it!
yep, I would think creation's moment was definitely a blast! love the photo too :)
something surprisingly sweet about the dirt in that image and the thought of laughter still reverberating throughout the universe. evidence of experience is like another course in this compact, though lush dish of a poem.you know, you are so consistent, providing such good quality so often, that visiting your blog, probably like so many others here, is one of my favorite blogging experiences. don't know what blogging would be like without waystationone, but it would not be nearly enjoyable.
Passando para conhecer o seu blog,adorei aqui,bom domingo
Few words maybe but you have said so much here!! Fantastic photo and an excellent accompaniment to your lovely poem which explains well the process of bringing something into existence!!
LOL! And doesn't it make life grand.
A moment you capture from creationProb caused such gratificationBut keep those hands away from meEww all dirty stirring up my ocd..haha
Lovely observations and sentiments.
Nicely told! :-)
Touching, simple, lovely.
Wonder full, wonder full!
Dirt...the gift of life.
mmmm - serenity in 160 characters - love it. this reminds me of what duane wrote about at Songs from the River blog yesterday.
Love that middle section... "must have been a blast"
Perfect for a Sunday ....
Sometimes I try to wrap my mind around the nothingness before the Universe was, and can't.
Beautiful words to go with a beautiful photo, Brian.Hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
So beautifully done, certianly one of my favorites. I am in Texas, my Mother is dying. It has all happened fast.
This challenge stumps me but you have perfected it~I like "echoes of its laughter" specially on Sunday ~
So little words so great a world you depict: creation a relic. ;-)
That's a beautiful photo and a great poem...you are gifted, that's for sure! (and thanks for stopping by!)
You have outdone yourself on this one,what a pleasant treat for Sunday.Keep up the excellence.
just 160 characters but you said so much Brian.. Loved it..Someone is Special
absolutely love the photo. Greatness!
So true...there must have been joy in creation. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160. Always excellent and thought provoking.
Love the pairing of the image and words.
I do believe creation was a blast.
the echoes is waving across through your blog
I am not a rabbit but I am running late for everything this weekend; probably tripped on the stall matsand stone dust pile too many times-Love the first line!
Picture in itself is full of meaning (there's always a bit of mess to go with beauty). Love your poem! Great last line -- and of course, the big bang was without a bang --- nothing but space -- so no sound waves -- butthe blast certainly had photons blasting out at some instant (less than a second) after creation. Now if one considers the theory of two universes colliding to create this one..... Great work!
And it is good. Very pretty words today love.
That was such a lovely illustration and a very thought provoking piece.Maggie XNuts in May
I bet it was a blast too!You know I read a book couple of years ago called Blasphemy and in it the author speaks of us having built a particle collider and finding 'God' at the point of explosive collision. (The big bang) and, God tells these scientist/people HE himself doesn't know everything, that, He is the creator but, he doesn't know himself who is HIS creator but that he does know our whole purpose here in the universe is to prevent it from heating up and then collapsing in it itself again...and he ends with 'The truth shall set you free' etc etc...an amazing (hi tech thriller) read. Sounds kind of like recent real life, doesn't it and if history does in fact repeat, who is to say that we are not to original creators of the original big bang by building these particle colliders and running experiments with anti matter and such that we really don't yet understand all too well. I also read that they are in the process of building a huge particle collider in space just to see what happens!...duuhhh. History repeating....maybe.Great 160 from you.
Lovely, inspiring creation, Brian. That picture... ahhh.
These could be my hands, with my fingerprints. I love that photo. I can feel the soil between my fingers. I wonder what came before and what will happen after, but I love the idea that..."..echoes of its laughterstill expandinto untouchedspace(s)"This is so wonderful.
I've always liked the word "whorls..." You used it perfectly. For some reason, I feel as if I might have spelled it wrong, only sounded it out before, but not written it myself.
Beautiful expression of creation.
I come here often but don't always say anything. Poetry is not my "thing", and I don't feel I have anything real to offer, but this:echoes of its laughterstill expandinto untouchedspace(s)touched me. :-) Nicely done, Brian.Pearl
I love it!
This is beautiful, Brian.
i agree. creation was a blast...! so much said in few words...love that.
You always pack so much in so few words, Brian. Hope you and your family had a beautiful Thanksgiving!
Brian~ A lovely capture, especially:echoes of its laughter still expand into untouched
I LOVE IT!!!You've grown as a poet like a bamboo shoot, Brian.
probably the only thing we'll ever experience that would be close to that 'blast' is experiencing the birth our children...and I'm sure that still pales in comparison.
You've squeezed in so much here and yet manage to include the small and particular. (The world in a grain of sand errr soil.)
This is excellent ... creation ...blast ... must have been the Big bang after all. :)
this is a tight gem!great pic.perfect wordsmarching to hintsof deep truth-Aloha from WaikikiComfort Spiral > < } } ( ° > ><}}(°>< ° ) } } > <(^_^)
This was short, brilliant, and very exciting! Such power in creation....
Enjoy being the creator :)
What a wonderful piece...creation's moment a blast..echoes of its laughter...Love your choice of words
It was a blast ;-)
Excellent. You do so much with so little space!
I do think the Creator has a great sense of humour, Brian. Just look around...
"What can you say in 160 characters (spaces included)?" Not as much as you my friend, not as much as you.
Dear Brian, hope you had a lovely weekend - your words compliment the image very well. The power of creation - in any form - is awesome.;)xoxo
A little Birdie told me that you're missed on 10thDoM. Whack some prose out you..flex that cerebellum
Lovely. I really like this. The final lines button it beautifully.
awww, i knew when to come back from my travels ;-) very lovely Brian! my belated 'happy Thanksgiving wishes' !!!
I love this....
M gonna sum up all in one word- Beautiful !!!
This is wondrous. Love that photo too.
Nice piece. Always a pleasure watching you work in these limited forms, as you always knock it out of the park. I've always found this type of topic great to delve into, well go figure right-lol But amazing job here, and love that word whorl. Thanks
a plethera of things to think about here Brian, and you always make the reader think long and hard :)
"echoes of its laughterstill expandinto untouched"that is so beautiful Brian.wow.or should I say pow,in my being. thanks.
Since I'm working my way backwards, I found it kind of funny that you created both this and the haunted couch story. But, it just goes to show how broad your range of talent is. Excellente:)
Love it--creation's moment must have been a blast! And that bang is still expanding further and further.
Sweet. Funny how your few words can conjure up so many thoughts. I thought of my father-in-law's huge, blistered hands. He loved the soil. Thanks for this one Brian.
You created a poem about creation. Amazing!Erick Flores
