The world as gray

Losing contrast,

A washed-out vision,

Puzzled into shades of neutral,

We live in gray world,

Cultivating boredom,

Unmoored from the distraction of vibrant colors,

Captivated by the texture.

Starting from zero

The past, nonexistent,

The future, unmoored from reality and irreality,

What will be, will be right now extending into the present,

Forever trapped in the concept of nothingness,

Ascending into a good day,

Descending into the good night.

A day for unknowns

Unschedule time,
Plan for a day of unknowns,
Dream as you like,
Pick a direction,
Run for it,
Tame the fear,
Dance with it.

The window within

Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset
Photo by Wells Baum (India 2014)

A restless creative mind, scatterbrained with curiosity and ruminating fecundity.

Where to look? What to see? Which to internalize and reinvent?

The window’s aperture compels focus, into an adventure that forces you to look outside your own existence.

If you're an artist, photographer, writer, etc., I highly recommend creating your own blog and publishing something new every day (read my post on how to set up a FREE blog on Wordpress).

While U wait

Anticipating the wait,

Waiting for the anticipation.

What is anticipation without the wait?

It is all a matter of timing, in sum.

The waiting keeps us on tenterhooks.

So why the rush…to nowhere?

Pedestrians at the corner

All photos by Wells Baum

At the corner,
Patiently waiting,
At least trying to,
Fidgeting instead,
Generation thumbs pecking at the phone,
A passing bus emits CO2 into the air,
We breathe in street dust,
Overtaken by wafting the delivery man’s pizza,


Staring at the other side,
Eavesdropping on each other’s chatter,
The newcomers give the placebo button another pinch,
A living signal turns white,
Twenty seconds to cross,
The clock ticks,
We all go together,
Dog trotting to safety,

One minute united at the corners,
Signalling styles,
Anonymous the next,
Walkers dignified as pedestrians,
Jealous of those who stayed behind.
