Flower Child #photography #poetry #mothersday

poetry penned in moon dust

water child

A silent offering

 made before you can form words

a dance between your face

colored flecks of bliss

*

Little fingers filled with offering

no words necessary

love fills your eyes

daisy fairy princess

*

A never ending offering

 from generation to the next

sweet daisies in your grasp

they match your yellow dress

little daisies

What would Mother’s day be without children?

This poem is for the children of our heart who pick flowers when they think of us.

The prompt for today at Poet’s United – Children

“The gain is not the having of children; it is the discovery of love and how to be loving.”

Richard Sherman is now the highest-profile jerky pitchman since Macho Man Savage

For The Win

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It was probably just a matter of time before Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman became an in-demand commercial pitchman.

Sherman introduced himself to America with his nationally televised screed against San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree following January’s NFC championship game, then helped the Seahawks’ elite defense crush the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.

On Wednesday, Oberto announced a national ad campaign featuring Sherman to promote its natural, high-protein jerky line. One commercial features Sherman congratulating NFL Draft picks and another features him speaking with the voice in his stomach, played by ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith.

“I like what they stand for,” Sherman told USA TODAY Sports. “I like their slogan – ‘You get out what you put in.’ It’s pretty straightforward and it really applies to football and to what I’m about.

“I feel like if you work harder and put in…

“Camera Purchase Nikon 1 J” – Don Charisma’s Opinion

Don Charisma

I can’t promise I’ll take any advice given so please bear that in mind prior to commenting, it’s an gathering of ideas.

I’m considering purchasing a new camera. My iPhone 4s produces some lovely photos, which I’m pretty happy with. However it’s come to my attention that compact DSLRs are available. Don’t try to persuade me to buy a full size DSLR, it’ll never happen, I want light and compact. The only reason I take as many photos as I do is that the iPhone is always with me, and NO EXTRA BAGGAGE TO CARRY.

Also I’m never likely to buy anything camera wise that doesn’t have a Nikon, Canon or Apple badge on it.

My overriding thoughts on buying any technology are – very/extremely portable as I do travel quite a bit, and prefer to travel as light as I possibly can.

I don’t have a lot of money…

For The Win

Rehab can’t keep Rob Ford from talking sports.

The politician, who recently sought help after a new video emerged showing him allegedly smoking crack, told the Toronto Sun this week that “rehab is amazing.”

“It reminds me of football camp. Kind of like the Washington Redskins camp I went to as a kid,” he told the newspaper.

Ford has spoken fondly of his time at the football camp before, including to DC sports radio show The Junkies, where he gave weekly predictions for NFL games. “It was amazing. I went down to a camp and these guys literally taught us how to play football — and they were professionals, banging on your door at 7 a.m. to go for the run. It was great discipline at a young age,” he said in December. “I went back there three years in a row, so it was fantastic.”
