“Not in his goals but in his transitions is man great” Ralph Waldo Emerson

From beginning to end it consistently changes.. One morning I was on my way to work and I captured the beautiful colors of the sunrise.. Then, as I like to say I “tweeked” the photo using Picnik.. ZuriART: Photo w/Picnik.. Enjoy the array of  abstract colors I was able to manipulate with this one photo.

Faded Picture

As I look at your picture, it smiles no more
And now this world, it has for me, no more
A precious heart is lost, so meek, so mild
As I sit and reminisce of all the good times we had
I remember them all, and then I get mad
For someone to take you so easily from me
All because you had a few Rolex’s and a Bently
Now I know this world has gone crazy
When it takes away my angel, my baby
I can’t sleep in peace because I hear your laughter
And I know that your laughing with God in the hereafter
And at times you cry because you see me suffer
And I wonder why I feel I must go under
Because I’ve lost the one thing that kept me smiling
And now that same thing keeps me all the time crying
You see I can see the day I saw you laying
With your keys in your hand and the trunk open to the jeep
See I only turned around for a second
And a second later you were sleep
Two to the head and one through your heart
Jealous because you were smart
An intelligent being, you knew what you wanted to do
Had just placed a ring on my finger and said “I do”
And now look at you…
Look at me, wondering how could this be
How could someone be so cruel to take you away from me
And now I realize that I must move on
And morn no more
Because I know that I will see you again
Someday once more…

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” Oprah Winfrey


Today is a new day and for this I am thankful
Hopeful of what is to come thinking on the waves of positivity
Able to believe in all of the many possibilities
Naturally fighting the thoughts of negativity
Knowledge of myself, keeping me content
Following no one, setting my own stride
Understanding who I am and where I want to be
Leaving behind the dreams of yesterday

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.” Buddha

Art Museum Riverside

I escape to the riverside, my getaway from it all,
Fishing to gather my thoughts,
My deepest emotions are snagged on the line of truth,
As the clouds dissipate above my head,
Through the branches,
The flickers of light clarify my dreams,
As my mind drifts among the endless possibilities…

~Alicia Adanna

These pictures were taken on the Schuylkill River, behind the Philadelphia Art Museum and down from Boat House Row. Originally taken in black and white and sepia, then altered into the colorful works of ZuriART: Photo using Picnik
