Reflecting Tignall, GA and the Countryside

Looking at the world through aviators, windows and side-view mirrors…

Rays Over the Fingers That Snap the Shot. Polly Nance. Digital photograph.

A drive home from Tignall

Reminded us of our pasts.

We paused at a graveyard.

And found joy in the present,

While remembering a future that awaits.

The dead are presently dead

And the living are presently living.

We had forgotten that a needle

Continues to bind our universe

With threads of natural unity.

Without war.

Without hate.









Let us not dig a grave of pain

but pronounce a peaceful existence.

And dwell with wings of the present.

Right over Wrong.

Peace over Politics.

Love-ending our mistakes.

    • Why thank you! I used to hate my name… now, I’ve grow to love it. Not every day that you come across another Polly. And thank you also for your kind words! It is truly great to hear because I work hard to not only produce works that are reflective of myself and experiences, but also works that make a statement or, hopefully, inspire. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    • Thank you so much! The glasses were hard to photograph… so they didn’t really turn out that clear… but, perhaps that is more truthful because it reflects the movement and speed of the car. Thank you again for the feedback!

  1. Howdy Polly –

    Great photos – kind of like seeing a portion of the world in reverse, what is – and isn’t
    Nice series…………..

    • Thank you so much! I don’t know why but lately I haven’t felt like writing stories… I’d rather speak in free verse prose. Haha. So glad you enjoyed the poetry as well as the images! Thanks for the feedback 🙂

  2. Polly, in my opinion this is one of the best posts you’ve ever done. The words are profound, the pictures fit with them perfectly – and the whole is a very worthwhile, genuine and moving experience – simply excellent. Adrian

  3. The “Back Window…” photo is my favourite one, so many layers of reflections and reality 🙂 I love graveyards as places of contemplation and peace; I take lots of pictures each year in graveyards- I live in Ireland and we have a rich history in ceremonial burying! Amy

Let me know what you are thinking :)
