Cadent Photo : Delightfully Blissed


to be aglow with you
in all of nature’s truth
is pure heavenly bliss
like our very first kiss


Selecting images to highlight the features of sensualism might seem like a simple task, but choosing to tickle the mind without resorting to the human body’s sensual and sexual attributes poses certain challenges.

Opting to focus on nature’s truth rather than epicurean delights, this photo was a perfect match for a natural inclination towards simple pleasures.

Catastrophic Cadence


Searching for somber words to maintain the candlelit cadence I embarked on, this word game called alliteration is proving to be quite a challenge!

Oddly enough, I’ve not creatively come up with many c-words to match these cadent headings. Of course, there are soft c’s and several “ch-sh” c’s, but matching a hard c with somber words hasn’t come that easily.

Leaning heavily on the word charcoal for today’s alliterating headline, I settled for catastrophic.

That in itself could very well be catastrophic considering there is absolutely nothing settling about anything catastrophic!

But I have to emphasize, focussing on horrendous topics while trying to make light of it, by no means is meant to downplay the reality of somber things. But at the same time – I refuse to let somberness bring me down.

Cadent Photo : Sky Light

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this one’s a sneaky one!

Selected for its spotlight shining on the endless colour of the sky, this photo was originally designed to accompany a poem titled Landscape of Love and recently inspired the creation of a Bright Mud Light cartoon character.

Cadent Image : Imago


imago

the imago I dreamed of

the life I was to live

has not materialized

not metamorphosized

Although facing further limitations due to restrictions brought on by Covid-19, I’m super excited to add a new feature to Cadent Words’ monthly highlights!

Every month, in addition to the current pages that have been featured, a new page will be added to highlight a photograph to accompany a selected poem.

With the intention to open this up for general submissions, for now, due to limited resources and time constraints, I’m resorting to my own photos, but I’m glad to introduce the very first contributor to kick off this new feature.
