Poem in Response

After seeing Draadklossen (Dutch language, meaning Bobbins), a creative composition by my dear friend, Inge David – she’s a wonderful photographer from Belgium who specializes in black and white, especially interesting automotive and macro captures – I was inspired to write this poem…


Threading clear insight
Through her photographic eye
Stitching life in stills

      Je was zo aardig om aan te bieden me te helpen met mijn ontbrekende knop, en ik heb genoten van onze uitwisselingen, daarna voelde ik me geïnspireerd om deze haiku-poëzie voor jou te schrijven! I always enjoy your wonderful photography, my dear friend Inge, and look forward to the samples which you share on your site! Je bent een lieverd, ik ben dankbaar voor je vriendschap en zo blij dat je van mijn werken hebt genoten! ❤️ Greetings from Knoxville! 😘
