Abdomen Shine

vivisection sky
unstuff the tenderloin clouds
scrub my organs clean

That landscape looks rather like it has been cleaned and swept.

P.S.-I followed a link which said that there are contests in here. Pray, where could they be?

Peace is where you find it, even in the OR of a biting landscape.

Catvibe said...

Truly a fantastic shot Jason.

Chris Eldin said...

Literally, breathtaking!!!

Sarah Hina said...

That landscape does glimmer like a scalpel. Amazing photo, Jason.

Renewal can hurt. Or maybe it's the longing for renewal and peace that cuts the deepest.

Jennifer said...

A powerful plea for rebirth. Or redemption. Or maybe a little of both.

I really like this, the sharp-edged imagery. Of course, my favorite poet is Sylvia Plath. ;)

Karen said...

Gorgeous shot and great imagery in the plea.

Aggie, a very strange moment visually. The ground brighter than the sky.

Scribblers, I hold periodic contests. At this point, I'm planning on the next one in April or May.

Walking Man, that's a great line! I'm afraid the anesthesia might not be taking.

Catvibe, thanks!

Chris, quite a day. :)

Sarah, so, so true. And I'm not sure how to know which is which.

Jennifer, you've grabbed the heart of it. Maybe it's even wanting the most pain possible in a plea to speed the process.

Karen, I love the fast-paced, unpredictable nature of photography from a moving car. You have to see it and take it. No time to deliberate.

@ Jason:
A great shot... somehow the absence of everything itself has filled the void! (Are we losing our writer to a photographer?? :-D )

@ Sarah: I honestly don't know how you come up with such lines..."it's the longing for renewal and peace that cuts the deepest"
That one line sums up the story of my life!!! :)

Beautiful contrast between sky and ground, as the words rise sacrosanct in their request.

Cloudia said...

Stark, yet lush with meaning and austere beauty. Aloha, fellow lover of the velvet night ;-)

jason evans said...

Aniket, don't worry. The photographer and writer live well together. Thanks!

Kaye, a poetic response. :) Thanks.

Cloudia, many thanks. And yes, I do like to draw my fingers across the velvet night.
