WPC: Monochromatic

September 6, 2015 garden 027~

Gardeners dream in every shade of green…

Every living shade and hue.


April 30, 2015 Oregon in April 224


But other colors fill our mind’s eye, too.

Greens fade to silver grey.

Soil’s browns lighten in the sun.

Vibrant peach and orange and gold bloom

In our imagination,

As soothing, watery blue brings restful peace. 


April 30, 2015 Oregon in April 248


Color saturates our world.

What is ‘monochrome,’

But one pointed concentration

On a single vibration at a time?

A single color’s purity penetrates first the eyes,

Then the mind,


April 30, 2015 Oregon in April 675


And finally explodes in living light within the spirit.

  1. What a wonderful combination of word and image. I love color of all sort, it makes me feel alive, wakes me up. Hence, I love your post.

  2. Beautiful post WG! I love your photos and the expert ways you captured color in each. I especially love that feather and moss! And beautiful meditation on color as well. Have a happy weekend! Blessings, Sarah

  3. Wow, awesome WPC post, my friend – you really hit the mark this time! 🙂 So many excellent pics, I ❤ the all! "Gardeners dream in every shade of green" – we do, don't we? 😉

  4. Beautiful – especially love the beaches.

  5. Your photos and words are a wonderful way to start my day! Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  6. Love every one of the photos, as well as the accompanying prose.

  7. Hello again, WordPress Photo Challenge Neighbour! we are either in similar time zones ( which i doubt) or have the same clock time but mine is day and yours is night. Even so – the chances of posting twice at the same time are – well, let’s say not good odds.
    I love your photos too, but more, i love your words
    “the pointed concentration of a single vibration at the same time”. ” enters the eyes, then the mind”.
    or heart.

    Monochrome – a meditation in a single colour.

    Gardners dream in shades of green – beautiful.

    • Thank you, Debbie. The universe has certainly made sure we recognize our linkage! I’m on the east coast of the US. Are you living in China? What is interesting is that I’ve been thinking about this post all day. I started to pull it together multiple times today and was pulled away to other tasks. And it published within moments of yours. I’m glad that you understood my references to mediation. And yes… heart ❤

      • hi wg, the universe is sure prompting us to communicate! yes i live in China. I wake up on my saturday mornings, and the first thing I do is check the WP Photo Challenge for the week, and then begin crafting the post. Then i wander around the blogosphere drinking in gorgous images and reading wonderful posts. The posts I love the best are the ones which combine beauitful, intriguing images with inspiring words, like yours does. It was great how you managed to reference ‘meditation’ without once using the word. So interesting that you were thinking about it all day, I woke up and thought, mm, great, just a pure photographic answer this time, limited words ( though as you might have noticed me limiting my words is always a challenge) – should be easy and not too time consuming, I thought. but i’d better get out of here and on with my day before my daughter loses patience with my blogging habits! have a wonderful evening and relaxing weekend! 🙂
