WPC: Reflections

This week’s theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge is ‘Reflections’.  Of course, as with so many of the themes, this is wide open for interpretation.  For once though, I’m going to stick to the literal theme and share some photographs of actual reflections which I hope you’ll like.

As I press on with my memoir this week (you’ll be pleased to know!) I’ve been doing more than my fair share of deep ‘reflection’. I’ve bashed out two blog posts just this morning in an attempt to describe where I am at the moment in my writing journey but I’m not so sure that even then I’ve been able to adequately do so.  Some serious cutting and pasting yet to be completed that’s for sure.

There are so many writing voices screaming at me just now that I’m having trouble keeping single-minded about it all.  I’ve got a fiction assignment to get out, I’ve missed more than one competition deadline which I’m not happy about and I’m also chasing an article submission I made to a magazine a couple of weeks ago (too early, do I wait a bit longer I wonder?). I also have a couple of freelance blog posts to write. So what am I doing instead?  This blog post of course!

All-in-all, I hope to steer through this muddied mess and plough ahead once again and get moving.  Rolling up the sleeves, keep on keeping on.  You know what it’s like.  Meanwhile, I’ve written this poem as I reflect upon this constant tug-of-war pulling at my thought-patterns and search for clarity. Peace?  Fear? Loss? Silence? Who knows.  Maybe I just need a hug!

Silent Embrace

Silken touch lingers upon my face
The touch of cool melting
in the chase;
For only in this silent dream
Does my heart slip into your deep embrace.

Though caught in the grey of shadow’s path
Lurks the ever-present threat to the
peace in my heart.
Grasping, sighing, falling, dying
Where wait we must for the
Hidden Spark.

Calling out from the deep where the
Lost Voice seeks
to be heard, understood,
Laid out as it slumbers in deepest sleep;
Yet caught up in ridicule so that in laughter
We both might weep.

Let your touch linger then, upon my face,
in the sweet sadness clinging
like rain’s damp taste;
For a thousand promises still hiding
in the grey, so at last, melting deeper into
Silent Embrace.

  2. I love your first reflections photograph, it’s absolutely beautiful! Is it a sunset or sunrise picture? Your poetry is so beautiful Sherri, you have such a wonderful way with words. I hope that your reflection goes well, so often I feel that we don’t take enough time in life to step back and reflect. It’s so important to do!

      Hi Heather, and thank you so much, I’m really glad you enjoyed the poem as well as the pics! The first one is a sunset, taken from the boat which we hired out for a couple of weeks last year for our holiday on the Norfolk Broads, a beautiful expanse of waterways on our Eastern shores!

      It is very important to take time out to reflect, and I think that in process of writing my memoir, or ‘creative non-fiction’ as I think I’m going to start calling it (!), it doesn’t give me much choice. I’ll be sharing more of this in my next post, but didn’t want to sound too angst-ridden!

      I hope things are going well with you and that you are having a good week 🙂

    Yes Jill, I knew you would be happy to hear this (thank you!) and I am going to be sharing more about this in my next post, so watch this space! But you are too kind. The problem is I like writing poems and blogging but I’m procrastinating with the other ‘stuff’ because I don’t like doing it! I’m having major problems with fiction at the moment but I’m thinking it’s because this isn’t the right time for me as my heart is in my memoir and that has to come first. My writing course ends in October though so I want to get my money’s worth and get all the feedback that I can though so I need to get this fiction writing done in time but it’s sidetracking me 😦
    Oh well, when my heart is in it maybe things will change…ever hopeful eh?!! 😉 xo

    Oh Sherri, you could have been writing about me! Not that I’m writing a memoir but there is so much going on at the moment I don’t know which way to turn, although I’m beginning to sort through the tangled mess that is my mind. I’ve put a temporary halt on any new fiction – I have more than enough material to re-work and edit. I too just missed a competition deadline but as there are so many out there, I’m just going to try one of the others.
    Blogging takes up an inordinate amount of time but it’s fun, I find it’s both educational while comforting to know that there are other folks out there (you!) who are experiencing similar things.
    I love your shot of Bodiam Castle – haven’t been there in ages but it’s magical, especially with small boys in tow. (Alas, they grow up).

      Yes, blogging is great fun and it is a wonderful thing. Maybe sometimes it’s the only thing 😉
      I hope that you get your projects underway and it sounds like you’ve made the right choice in not taking on any new fiction for the time being.

    I’m a terrible author and probably shouldn’t be giving you any advice. But, maybe you could write a story for your non-fiction memoirs and then totally rewrite it as a fictional assignment for your writing course. Isn’t some fiction loosely based on real characters and events?

      You give good advice! I am beginning to grasp that this in fact what fiction writers do, use their own experiences and characters from people they know (or themselves) and turn them into fictional stories. I’m trying to get my head around this. You would think it would be easy wouldn’t you, but I have a real mental block about it!

    Your photos tell stories, as do your poems. And blogging is yet another way of honing your craft. Reflective time can be a time of gestation rather than procrastination, and that’s sometimes as important as the discipline of actually getting the words onto paper. Creativity is demanding and when you have different voices calling for your attention, it’s a wise woman who knows where to listen first! And you sound like a wise lady.

    I’m so glad you used the reflection on water, ’cause, after all, you could have used anything! Metal, mirrors, glass etc. But the still water of lakes… Beautiful. The most beautiful reflections there are, mirroring the sky and flora to make it look like there’s another world lying beneath the calm surface… I used to stare in lakes a lot as a child (I was a strange child).

    Your poem is equally beautiful. A very delicate, gentle vibe came from it, though slightly melancholic. I often think of that as positive sadness, because there’s nothing wrong with sorrow, and speaking to the world creatively is the most graceful way to do it. It’s good to see you’re getting there with your writing 🙂 I hope your time away is healing you. As you said, reflections can be more than physical.

    HUGS to you 😀 Remember: keep smiling! If you’re struggling, remember the mental image of Mr. Gazelle-Catley 😉

      Oh Jenny Jen Jen, if you were a strange child then so was I as I used to do just the same and still love to, hence these pics! I’m fascinated with reflections in the water so this challenge was easy for me.

      I’m so thrilled that you liked my poem too, what you said about it means so much to me as I love to get feedback like this and to know what others reading it feel when they do so. I like that, ‘positive sadness’. It must be what is in my heart as that is where it came from and that would be a very true description, but, as you say sorrow can be creative and positive. I’m so glad that you see this in the same way and ‘get’ it 🙂

      Ahh, and big hugs to you too, I hope you are feeling better 😦 and had a better day 🙂 Take care of that knee and oh yes, I’m laughing quietly now just thinking of Mr Gazelle-Catley, ha ha 🙂 🙂 🙂

        Heh, well maybe being strange isn’t such a bad thing 🙂 I did many things like that as a child – lying on the grass and watching snails an inch away from them, sitting by the pond to watch the frogs and the water, staring up at the clouds for hours on end, and then go out at night and stare at the stars. All so simple, all so beautiful.

        We writers have a connection, Sherri 😉 But yes, I like to think of ‘positive sadness’ often. Thinking things in that light makes the world lighter, in both meanings of the word!

        My day was better, thank you, but the knee is not good at all… I’m genuinely getting quite concerned about it :/

Glad to hear that you haven’t forgotten about the memoir though – like the way you linked those reflections of memory to the theme – beautiful photos again, I particularly love the first one. There are lots of wonderful images in your poem – ‘touch of cool melting’ ‘grey of shadow’s path’ ‘sweet sadness clinging’ ‘rain’s damp taste’….I could go on…

      Creativity comes with challenges. I could relate to the distraction you describe. Sometimes I am grabbed by something that takes me away from an “assignment” even if my own. So many discoveries in our thoughts/words and yet our feelings seem to be orchestrating it all. Somehow it all comes together in our life expression. My favorite reflection is in relationships and how we see ourselves in each other. This is the beauty of the blog!

        Hi Tiramarie, thank you so much for coming by and reading my blog and for your great comment. Creativity does indeed bring it’s challenges and many distractions! Sometimes it comes down to just giving in to the one piece of writing that is burning the strongest in our heart and then we just have to give into it before it dies away. How we see each other as reflected by others is a very interesting perspective and what better way than by that as expressed through blogging!

      Well it does seem that way Andrea, probably because I’ve had more time on my hands to actually get down and write. The hours fly by don’t they when writing? The problem is that I need to get my priorities right! Still, I’m learning that actually, by going from one piece of writing to another, even if a completely different genre, can be a good thing. I used to think that I had to concentrate on just one thing before going onto the next but that it is possible and maybe even preferable to have several writing assignments on the go at once!!
      Thank you so much for your encouragement of my poem, I love that you picked out these specific phrases, this means so much to me it really does. To know that you felt these images…

    I love your photos! Such bold reflections in the water, I think that’s what makes them look so stunning. Good luck with all your writing. I know how it feels like when there are so many writing voices making a lot of noise inside your head. As a freelance writer, I’d be working on one article, but then another article or a blog post idea would be calling out to me and I’d feel compelled to write the latter two first even though the first one’s due first. But to be honest, I enjoy all this madness a fair bit. Writing is my passion; I write to share and I think you do too 🙂

    I think it’s very common for us creative-types to get overwhelmed by ideas and too many projects at once. I’ve often struggled with that, but my health problems have demanded that I learn to prioritize and work steadily on just one thing, or I end up too sick to work on anything at all.

    Since I’m really not very good at prioritizing (it ALL feels insanely important to me!), I have weekly meetings with Ken. He’s got the kind of efficient, results-oriented mind that is able to cut through the goop and just get the job done. I’m off to have another one of those meetings right now.

I love that you’ve kept to the reflection of water; I could quite honestly sit and stare for hours on end at a gently-moving lake or what-have-you, as the reflection drifts, without getting bored at all. But hey, I grew up on the Broads!

    A lovely poem, too. You simply stun me, Sherri P, such a busy bee, juggling so much at once and still pulling corkers like this out of the bag.

  35. Beautiful reflections Sherri. You have also brought back memories for me of my visit to Bodhiam Castle. The only way to deal with too many voices is to go for a walk, see who is talking to you most and sit down and have coffee with that voice only. The conflict listening to them vie for attention when they are altogether creates an inability to do anything. Difficult to do though when you have deadlines. Cheers Irene

      Yes, you are so right about those voices and you put it so well. Walking does wonders doesn’t it? I love the analogy about seeing who is talking the loudest. That is great advice. Difficult, yes, when under pressure, but it does help separate the men from the boys, so to speak. Thank you very much for this great advice.
      PS Still haven’t read your article but I haven’t forgotten. Heading back home tomorrow so will catch up over the weekend with everything 🙂
