Protected Heart.

Brigit has a monthly prompt for poetry and I wanted to join in, but the thing is, I don’t think I am very good at it, so I put it off. For the last few months there has been a poetry form called Haiku. A form of Japanese poetry, Haiku traditionally comprises of 3 lines and 17 syllables. The lines have 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively. It is not a form I have tried before but as you may have realised from yesterday’s education post, and the learning about photography post I am trying new things lately.

Speaking of camera’s.

New Lens.

My zoom lens arrived. The camera came with an 18-55mm lens. I have got a second lens, a 55-250mm, and of course I had to test it out! So at half past 4 having taken extra meds, I made my way to the garden to take some photo’s. I decided to try using some props and took 2 pendants with me, a marcasite cross and a silver plated heart with cubic zirconia stones in it. I wanted something to contrast with the soft flowers. I am happy with the results because I used the manual photo settings, even selecting the focus point manually to make sure the camera focused on the jewelry. One picture gave me the idea for the below Haiku, which I hope you like.

Protected Heart.

In thorny bushes,
Your heart is hid protected,
But aches for freedom.

Camera Settings: Lens 55-250mm: F11, 1/200, ISO200, Focus Length 70mm, Max Aperture 4.25

This post is linked to the Erotic Poetry Challenge for June which is ‘Movies’. It is a tenuous link but the hidden gems in the flowers and bushes made me think of the film ‘Fairies at the bottom of the garden.’ To see more posts inspired and linked to Brigit’s Poetry Challenge, click HERE.

I am also linking to the Fun Theme Photo Meme #3 ‘Half’ as you can see one of the images is in two halves. To see more posts linked to the theme click HERE.

  1. You haiku and photographs are perfectly matched. It must be forty years since I’ve written a poem! I know pefectly that feeling of getting a new lens. Last year I bought a secondhand 18-135mm lens which has become my constant companion. Thanks for including your settings by the way. Always very useful for a relative newbie like me.
