In Sepia

Hey Everyone!
I know it's been a while since I last wrote anything...I've been so busy editing...And taking care of the family. So much has been going on since I've last written. I've decided I'm not going to let someone who is angry at me chase me away from where I want to be. I just don't have to tolerate it. I can be civil, but I will never feel that trust again.
Anyway, we are now in hurricane season, so I bet you can imagine the ups and downs of living in SW Florida this time of year. The past few days here was....hmmm, how do I explain it???

I'll just let you know in a poem:

I was in NY, July 2001 and took a picture of the ESB tower...I changed the color tone to coincide with the poem... .

Today I awake in sepia views
Undertones of brown yellow-orange hues
I love to play around with this kind of tone
But waking up to it makes me feel so alone
Sun, the sun, supposed to play a major role
Florida sun makes me happy not down in a hole
I'm glad when you descend and moon is here
I'm sad when you arrive and no where near
For today was sepia, a warm tricky tone
It is sunny and cloudy with rain time unknown
And so today I awake in a sepia view
A bleak dreary day dipped in unwanted hue

Poem, Picture,


  1. Hi Diana,

    Wow! You took a great photo. I love your treatment of it too. It makes for a very dramatic scene which fits your excellent poem very well!

    I could not imagine living in an area that is prone to hurricanes. You convey the anxiety well and I get a glimpse of what this time of year means for you.
    I'll certainly be keeping you in my thoughts that this season is event free for you. ((hug))

    I'm glad to you are blogging again and are not going to let someone else's issues interfere with what you enjoy doing. You work hard and most certainly deserve this outlet to display your talents.

    I hope you have a great weekend!! And thanks for sharing such a excellent poem!
    (((BIG HUGS)))

    1. Hey Tikarma,

      *HUGS* Thank you so much for the compliment on my poem. It means a lot to me.

      I woke up the other day thinking I was going to go and get some sun but when I awoke, looking at the inside of my house and seeing the color tone, I knew that would be out of the question. The only other question to ask is when is the rain going to get here? LOL.

      Some days it could come early morning and others mid day or early evening. It's so subjective, but I'm so used to this weather I don't know if I could ever tolerate colder weather again.

      *HUGS* and thank you again. I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far.
