From Denny: Sorry it took me so long to get back up online this past week. I changed internet providers and it was the earliest they could get me installed. So far it's turned out to be a big plus! But it sure has put me behind on daily posting on one blog and twice a week posting on the other seven. :)

When I write poetry I like to illustrate the poems with photography so I go cruising through the Creative Commons area of Flickr for fun photos and new photographers to promote - whether they are amateurs or professionals. I'm a big fan of promoting others as well as my own work as everybody wins in my book. Besides, it's great fun to poke around the web and see all the creative goodies that other people are doing too and it gives me ideas for my own creativity.

Among these photos are those placed in this week's poem. Take a look at the poem after you view this post and see how your perception grows or changes perspective as the photos interplay with the words of the poem story:

The Understanding poem - Libations Friday 10 Sept 2010 - We build Peace in our lives a moment at a time - and this is a poem story of how it can start early in childhood as it did for me.
