Adan’s One Line PhotoPoems – Vermont Marshland Sunset From The Island Line Trail Panorama

Shadows shone absorbing sunset into night.


Like with my first one line PhotoPoem barely over a week ago, the question remains – is my little poem a title, a description, a one line poem, or simply a fragment, like the moment itself?

And like that first one line PhotoPoem, I remember this moment quite distinctly.

The Island Line Trail, a fortified raised railroad bed now serving as a bike and pedestrian path for people to cross from the mainland to South Hero Island, isn’t visible here, but what it enables, the view out onto the lake without a boat, is wondrous.

Crossing the length of the line from mainland Vermont to South Hero, was a goal of mine for over four years til I finally did it. And when ever Sheila and I are back in her home state (soon again we hope, after missing a few years, because of surgeries and the pandemic), walking or bike riding this stretch of marvel the people of Vermont have enabled for themselves and others, is a primary goal ❤️

My one line poem for my photo, was so thrilled with beauty, in the reflections and within the shadows, I can’t help but feel hope in the promises and process of renewal the poem conveyed to me. After all, from the little I understand, even black holes fill to the point of emitting light again….

Or maybe they just “might” be doing that when they spit out lines of light and energy nothing seems able to stop. Good enough for me!

Especially on New Years Eve! 😊

Thanks so much everyone!

Do you feel a one-liner you can express to describe my photo? If you like, please post in the comments. If you’re also on Twitter ( mine is @FelipeAdanLerma ), include your handle & I’ll try to tweet it. Only positive or contemplative orientated sentiments please ❤️

    I’ve meandered around what to write for my birthday post this year, probably reflecting not exactly the chaos (though there’s enough of that, lol!) but the whirl of activity in my life right now – fitness activities, art – of all kind, family, and the stutteringly slow but certain shift from unbearable 6 month summer in Austin to, well, breathable walkable art-doable weather ❤️ Weatherman says the weekend days’ highs into my birthday (Tuesday) are the coolest temps since mid-April. That’s a very long time, lol! 😅
  • October 18, 2021 – A Good Problem, Lots of Interesting Pics and Posts Developing in My Blog Pipeline! Part 3, 1st Completed Work of 5 – “Playtime, Mother and Child”
    I’m also breaking a bit of tradition in terms of my routine and going ahead and posting my completed image, not as good a resolution etc as I’d like (yet), and also not yet uploaded to Fine Art America. It’s simply a time choice. Paint and create. Or paint less but massage the photo capture & upload to FAA more. It’s not really a win-lose thing.
  • October 17, 2021 – My Most Viewed Image For a 2nd Week @FineArtAmerica, Abstract Study 1, #watercolor
    Though I’ve had some of my images repeat a 2nd week or more, or return again after awhile to place top of my views for the week at Fine Art America, it’s still rare for an abstract of mine to do so. It’s sorta ironic for me, since I began painting in earnest in the 80s creating acrylic abstracts (after fooling around doing clouds and Dali-ish dripping clocks in my 20s 😊), and then….
  • October 16, 2021 – My Idea for Promoting My WordPress Blog Posts on Twitter (Besides My Pinned Tweet), Part 2
    Knowing me, I doubt this’ll be my final tweet format I can use on Twitter to let folks see & know what my most recent blog posts are. I of course tweet the individual blog posts themselves out, often using them here in my posts. But I felt the need for a more inclusive, easy to change to keep up-to-date format and after some earlier incarnations, this tweet above may work for me for awhile, changing the screen shot of my current blogs as needed 😊
  • October 15, 2021 – 2nd Time Out Sketching with Austin’s #UrbanSketchers Group! Still a Treat! #PeasePark
    Though immensely more challenging this time around for October’s outting with Austin’s Urban Sketchers chapter (heat indexes near 100 – hopefully a forerunner to an expected cool front; traffic challenges due to Austin City Limits festival), and, not particularly enamored with my resultant efforts this time around — — it was so good to talk with other artists! Be out among so many folks and families, and, “try” my 2nd time out painting plein air since (I think) the early 2000s!
  • October 14, 2021 – My Idea for Promoting My WordPress Blog Posts on Twitter (Besides My Pinned Tweet), Part 1
    I have my pinned tweet on my Twitter timeline of course, where I show images of my work on Fine Art America, with link to my site there of course, and, also list my blog site here on WordPress. But as you can tell above, the latter, my WordPress website, gets not that much focus. Though if you’d like to retweet it, please do, lol! 😊 So basically, I asked myself, how – beyond a 2 short lines in the text – can I better promote my WordPress site, along with my Fine Art America site?
  • October 13, 2021 – A Good Problem, Lots of Interesting Pics and Posts Developing in My Blog Pipeline! Part 2
    Recently I posted 3 other canvas paintings I’ve been working on, and here I’m showing the 2 I’d mentioned in that post but didn’t have photo captures of yet. Both are 18×24 on canvas, with light molding paste from Golden, but, at this stage applied slightly differently.

Thanks again, everyone! 😊
