Harvest

Welcome to PICTURE PERFECT

Each week a theme will be posted up on Wednesday, and you are invited to put up your best picture with that theme in mind, it should be just

 ONE and ORIGINAL,

 not off the internet,

then post a comment on this page

so that everyone can link to your page and see your pic.

By all means mention your camera and lens used!

Open that page for viewing for all...and visit as many as you can!

The entries will close at midnight on Friday.

Have fun out there!

Harvest,

the connotation is so varied,

for many

a gathering of friends and family

  of reaping our rewards

at the end of a vigourous growing season,

It may mean a celebration of hard work

a preparation of difficult times forseen,

a change in the weather,

both inside and out.

However,

the timing is not always ours to choose

the cycle not always ours to manipulate

as a multitude of factors collaborate

to create confusion

but in the end

ensure perfect timing

in our universe.

 

It's a time to reminisce

and hold close

to that and those who are dear

its a time of no regrets

but rather a time of gratitude for a fulfilled life

and a chance perhaps for another season

in this complex cycle of life.

  17. Here's my entry : http://antyharton.multiply.com/journal/item/56/Harvest - a bit of a different interpretation than Thanksgiving Harvest time :-)

  18. Great colors on the corn. This is going to be a tough one!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have to second this. I have never seen a corn like that. It's indeed a very pretty one. The colors, are they originally like that?

    I agree with what you said about harvest. The main point is not only the result but also the way all the family can be together and celebrate it - the togetherness.
    Which is kind of like us - even though not everybody is celebrating it right now; all of us are thankful for being here and having Picture Perfect together. *smile*
    I have the picture for this theme - I will come back and let you know after it is up.
    Thanks so much, Heather! *hugs*

    Well, I'm back and mine is up!

  20. Ups, I didn't see this when I post my comment above... so sorry. :-|
    So it's Indian corn... way cool! Again, thanks so much for the theme!
    Happy thanksgiving to you and your family! *hugs*

  21. I posted mine early this week, as I'm going out tomorrow and sure as little green apples grow on trees, by the time I get home, I won't remember what I had thought of posting. You can see my entry here.

    I always wondered about that colourful corn. Does it taste the same as 'regular' corn? For me, it would take a lot of getting used to. Great photo : )

  22. This is excellent... Your photo is beautiful and you have such a way with words. Have a wonderful day tomorrow.

  35. It's a beautiful poem, although I couldn't understand some small bits of it.
    And the picture is so unique.
    I love the corns' colors.
    In my country, we have so many corns all year long, but corns like yours are not exist.
    No idea why.
    Just wondering, how do they taste?

    HAPPY THANSKGIVING DAY there.
    Have a happy weekend with your family and friends (^o^)v

  45. Wow what a theme! Great shot from the uni con (unique corn:) from your hand. I have never eaten this kind of corn. Usually in Indonesia or in Germany we eat the yellow one. In Indonesia we even give chili margarine and sugar before making barbeque with it. We called it jagung bakar. So many shops in pedestrians in Semarang or Yogyakarta cities provide this stuff with only 1 Euro (for 3 stucks). Anyway, mine is up. Can't wait your comment to mine. HIyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

  46. A lovely colourful image .... my effort is now in situ ...

  48. Beautiful words to a terrifci theme... and I've never seen corn in that rich dark color of purple or violet before. That photo makes me want to steam them up and bite right in. :-)
