Nothing More Than Something September 10, 2011

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, Blogging, Word Play.

A curl 

Nothing more than something 


Of spiral form



More fanciful still

Spiral waves 

Curving surely


These steroidal curls

Surely fill

The Curly Bits bill?

Very nice photos. I thought this was a photo challenge at first.

That’s the best part of Sidey’s challenge . . . it’s anything you want it to be.

Poems, stories, essays . . . and even food sculptures!

I like the photos and love the descriptors.

Thanks, NC. I shared your Cape Town SA post with the bloggers I follow from SA. Maybe a few of them have dined (and danced!) at the same establishment.

An unusual take on the theme, I like it 🙂

nrhatch - September 11, 2011

Thanks, Cin. The first thing I did was a quick search of all posts on SLTW (both published and draft) for the word, “Curly.”

Over 1400 posts and none contained the word “Curly.”

Glad that rather serious omission has now been rectified. 😆

Once again…thinking outside the box…I love it.

nrhatch - September 11, 2011

Thanks, Granny. Sidey’s themes give us a chance to explore different angles from our norm. Always fun.

They do indeed!

nrhatch - September 11, 2011

Thanks for another intriguing theme, Sidey!

Curly is a good word and so is your post

nrhatch - September 11, 2011

It is! And it’s a word I’ve NEVER used before on SLTW ~ over 1400 posts and none contained the word “Curly.”

Until now. 😀

I like these photos very much, they speak of a journey, yet to unknown destinations.

nrhatch - September 11, 2011

Thanks, Robyn. I agree . . . a path unfolding before us.

They depict the lighthouse stairs on Chincoteague Island ~ just off the coast of Virginia.

8. ElizOF - September 12, 2011

I love the photos and all the shapes and forms in them… as always, your poetry is beautiful. 🙂

nrhatch - September 12, 2011

Thanks, E. Lighthouse stairs resound with a metallic echos as we race round and round, eager to reach the finish line and see the vistas before us.

9. Tokeloshe - September 12, 2011

Well done!

nrhatch - September 12, 2011

Thanks, Tok. Sidey’s challenge, as per the norm, was a FUN change of pace this week.
