From where I sit…

From where I sit, the earth is vast and sparkle gleaming,
From where I sit, great rivers seem to be mere streamings,
From where I sit, the earth spreads on display and bare.
From where I sit, no sign that humans e’er were there,
From where I sit, the whirring jets confirm I’m here,
From where I sit, the aero-techies (gladly) rule the air.
And yet I sit  within the hugeness of this steel,
And know that I, a speck of dust must be (surreal),
So here I sit, in awe of greatness of God’s plan,
Kept aloft (yet marred) by wondrous feats of man.


Photo 101: Day Seven: Big & Point of View
Today, let’s go big. Whether inside or outside, photograph something of massive size. Feel free to interpret big in your own way, and get creative with your shot. Capture all or just part of the subject. Place it in the foreground so it takes up the entire frame. Or shoot it from afar so it appears smaller — yet still prominent.

  1. Love your poem and the photo is perfect for this assignment.. I love photos from the air, showing the vastness of this world we live in.


    • So do I, except I normally try to avoid including the wings or endows. This assignment played right into my hands. Thanks for commenting.
