Poetry + Photography

Long before I started writing songs I used to write poems :) I wrote my first one when I was 8 years old (1998) and I created my first website with some of my poems when I was around 11. I eventually made an updated website with more of my poems (when I was 16) which you can view here: https://www.freewebs.com/rachel_mypoems/contentspoemsinenglish.htm (There are 19 poems in english and 29 in maltese)

More recently I did a new website to combine my photography with my poems to achieve a more colourful visual effect :D. I selected some of my favourite poems and combined them with some of my favourite photographs and combined them here: https://in-spy-ration.blogspot.com.mt/.

There are only 5 in english in this website but you can view my photographs in the maltese versions too :) (The poem entitled 'Strike' is my favourite english poem on the new webiste: https://in-spy-ration.blogspot.com.mt/2011/08/strike-2011.html) + the orange logo is an edited sketch of mine :)

I hope you like them :)

@Rachel_D The website design is very nice and so are your poems. Nice to see expression of words aligned together. :D

@Rachel_D

I read some of the poems on your first website that you made when you were 16 (and younger), and they are really good in my opinion, and several of them would also be great lyrics for songs

it looks like this new board about "other arts" (than songwriting) is made for you @Rachel_D , poems, photography, drawing (and architecture) you have got it all  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Hey @Rachel_D thanks for sharing!! Wow nice sites there... I loved 'Poetry...is fun! (2001)'... Which has evolved to one of your statements 'Music is how feelings sound' (if I'm not mistaken) isn't it?
Are we going to see some architecture as well? ;-) And sketches?  ::) ::) ::)
Well done Rachel!
:mart:

Big talent from a little island @Rachel_D  - the internet and this forum is something - if you think about it, that a guy living outside of NYC and in the middle of a move to a place outside of Chicago can take some down time and look at what someone half the world away created.

@Dutchbeat  , @Waffle_Da_Boy_Wonda  , @Mar T.  and @vincent_stewart

Im really sorry for taking sooo long to reply! I just wanted to say THANK YOU for taking the time to read this post and visit my poems. It means a lot to me :) I wrote most of them when I was much younger and at the time I had this deep wish that people from around the world could read them. And its great to know that they are now actually reaching people from several countries :D

@Dutchbeat  : Glad you like Strike :) And its so nice to read that you visited the older website as well :) ...I had actually created melodies to 3 of them: 'wherever you may be', 'we' and 'the time has come' when I was around 14 years old. This was also around the time that I bought my synthesiser and at the time I really wished that someday I could create music for films and had created a nice melody for 'wherever you may be' with that intent. It was always me in my room having these big music-related dreams :D It brings a smile to my face when I think of this :) Someday I'll do recordings of some of these very first songs of mine (the ones that I had always dreamed to have proper music accompanying them) and share them with kitchen :).... Thanks for all your kind words DB yes I happen to love everything that has to do with arts!! :D :D

@Mar T.  : Ah you read poetry is fun! I wrote that during my first year in secondary school to decorate my english poetry project book :) :) I guess one can consider that those thoughts on poetry helped shape my perception of music. And I do believe that music is how feelings sound like as it manages to capture the intangible. However, I did not come up with the latter statement myself (I guess I had read that somewhere and it remained imprinted in my mind).  I might put up some architecture/ sketches someday :)

Thanks for dropping by @vincent_stewart  : I agree  - I find that extremely fascinating its amazing  to know that my poems have reached the other side of the world :D
