The poetry I gravitate to has no form and no rules. Rules and form take the poetry out of it, in my opinion. Rather than giving you my accolades, I very much like how Jennie, who did the Thurs. ABC before, described it as “seamless.” Most of the images in this post have a seamless quality while meandering through  some places of Northern California.


It is easy to find poetry in flowers like wisteria. In other things
with not as much finesse and polish, it may be somewhat harder.

He calls it a tinker room  made out of re-purposed wood –
there’s a certain poetry in hard work to build something.
But  poetry in a mess of Tools … em, maybe not so much, haha.
A good thing  is that an immaculate house with empty counters,
tables, or desks is not my goal.They give me a feeling of sterility.

Even this door fits with thoughts of seamless.
Defining what is in – or outside – is not
of much importance with this door way.

to renew our passports (a while ago).

Was struck by the dream  like quality of this little scene.

    An eclectic mix. My favourite is the flower which looks like wisteria but I’m probably wrong.

  2. restlessjo says:

    Renewing passports, Jesh? A journey ahead, after all? 🙂 🙂 Many thanks for sharing.

  3. Lydia C. Lee says:

    That last shot is very interesting. Nice one

    Sorry, not that I know of, but living in another country I want to be prepared if I need to make an an emergency trip back to Holl.:p (over-responsble …sigh)

  5. riitta k says:

    Well, I have a lot of poetry too – in form of my husband’s scattered tools :DDDD The most annoying thing is that he does not find anything, does not remember where he last put them!

  6. Hello, I like the door above all others…it has something…

  7. Dan Antion says:

    Great photos and nice thoughts about poetry. I follow a lot of poets, and I enjoy almost any form they put out there. I love the workshop photo.

  8. Pieni Lintu says:

    Great shots and nice tools!

  9. jesh stg says:

    I thought you would like the worksop. Hubs made a 180 degree change (in South. Calif. he worked on millionaires houses, so only the most expensive was good enough), now he discovered shiplag:)

  10. Peabea says:

    I think I would have to pick the photo of the door. Says simplicity and like the ones of yesteryear. Can hear the virtual slam of an old fashion screen door. 🙂 How I loved growing up in a house that had one of those and the slam as we took our bologna sandwiches and kool aid out to the front porch in Summer.

    Seamlessly woven 🙂
    Have a great week, Jesh!
    A splendid sailing ship indeed!

    I love wisteria! It makes my heart sing! Have a lovely week!

  13. We already have to follow far to much rules that life gives us so whereever and whenever we can enjoy seemless, we should jump to that opportunity I think

    Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-Wednes-day / -week

    A unique take on poetry … but the wisteria wins all 💕

  15. jesh stg says:

    It may be Dutch thinking….? In high school had 2 classes in poetry

  16. Margy says:

    That’s a great looking workshop. I love working with wood. – Margy

  17. Awesome photos, Jesh. The photo of the Dutch door looks like a painting. Maybe a dream. 🙂

  18. Suzanne says:

    I like the idea of poetry without rules and of photos as a seamless response to life.

  19. I love the wisteria (can almost smell it) and the cool door handle. You’d love my house, as there aren’t lots of pristinely empty surfaces anywhere. Oh, I try, but piles of magazine, mail, notes, etc. seemingly multiply in the dark. Today I’m trying to take back some of that, but it’s difficult. 🙂


  20. jesh stg says:

    Oh I know! What I do sometimes to force myself is I put the pile(s) in front of the couch where I always sit, and do it while looking at a tv program:) Good luck:):)

  21. “My” chair has an ottoman, which serves as a desk for my laptop and piles. 🙂 I do exactly the same thing. For instance, later today, I’ll be watching a stage of the Amgen (cycling) Tour of California and doing some decluttering/cleaning/whatever. Tonight after praise team practice will be another hockey game, so another opportunity. 🙂 Of course sometimes I just watch and relax.

  22. jesh stg says:

    Your ottoman must be big:):) Didn’t know California had a cycling tour. Ever watched the Tour de France? Hockey …do you know field hockey? that’s what they play in Holland. The only group sports I liked to play in highschool. But after that art took its place:)

  23. The Amgen has been going on for some years and is professional, just like the Tour, which we always watch. Got to see a stage live one year while visiting France! I know field hockey, but this is ice hockey. 🙂

  24. Norm 2.0 says:

    The workshop shot is right up my alley and I do enjoy a door that gives off nice reflections. Nicely done 🙂

  25. Love your seamless photos, so dreamlike! Immaculate house with empty counters, tables or desks is not my goal either. A home is where you are surrounded by small and familiar comforts, not sterility. There is definitely poetry in mass of tools, for you and me it would be drawing/painting tools 🙂


  26. Peter B says:

    I absolutely see the poetry in that workshop!! Love the re-purposed wood and the unique patterns and hues that they make.

  27. Jim says:

    Good clouds.

  28. ladyfi says:

    A lovely mixture of shots.

  29. Nice. “Seamless” always evokes “garment” in my mind.

  30. betty - NZ says:

    Great post! I particularly love that door.

  31. I love the sky reflection in the little canal, and seeing his tinker room is neat. I didn’t see that when I visited you, and I thought your house keeping was perfect and very welcoming! Not that I looked that closely…I was there to see you and not the house. I only remember your gorgeous, big window in your living room and the balcony outside it, and those wonderful pine trees! Oh and there was a plant in the living room enjoying the sun that came through the window, and that lovely painting of a flower that you painted on the opposite wall above the kitchen. You see I remember the important things. 🙂

  32. Eileen Wise says:

    Hello, I love the wisteria and pretty sky scene. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  33. Sharon says:

    The wisteria is so pretty! I think purple spring flowers are my favorites. The little canal is just charming, too!

  34. Fabulous reflection image. Have a lovely weekend.

  35. Your photos are really good! I’m right there with about “rules” pertaining to poetry.

  36. Jim says:

    Beautiful reflection.

  37. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Sharon! Have a great weekend:)

  38. Angie says:

    The doorway is fascinating … wouldn’t it be wonderful to meet the people that live there?

  39. Eileen Wise says:

    Hello, stopping back to say thanks so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend.

  40. Great images! Love the Wisteria, and the Sky Reflection is awesome!
    Hope you are having a great weekend!

  41. We were always encouraged at school to write poetry about what we knew and saw in the everyday life.

  42. Love the Wisteria Jesh. Have a wonderful weekend.

  43. Betty Crow says:

    The wisteria is beautiful! Enjoyed your post.

    Great shots, as usual, Jesh.
