~Jillian Lukiwski from Artful Blogging Summer 2014

Every now and then you’ll come across an image that immediately strikes you full of inspiration. You may suddenly want to draw, paint, or even compose a poem or song — and all because there’s something magical, wonderful, and simply stirring about that particular photograph. Sometimes, we’re not just inspired, we’re reminded of something else that we hold to be equally as moving. For example a favorite quote, the lines of a song, or a portion of a beloved poem.

While I was flipping through the pages of the summer 2014 issue of Artful Blogging, I saw Jillian’s picture and what came to my mind, almost immediately, was the couplet of my all-time favorite sonnet:

Then happy I, that love and am beloved
Where I may not remove nor be removed.

~William Shakespeare, Sonnet 25

There’s something effortless, charming, and just plain beautiful and romantic about Jillian’s photograph that resonated with me in the same way that my favorite love poem does. This got me thinking, if this is how I feel about this image — I wonder how others feel about it too?

    I’m not on Pinterest so I know I can’t win but my caption for the photo of the woman running through the blue bells would be “This is a lot more fun than tip toeing through the tulips!”

  3. Kim Gaynor says:

    Concerning the third photo, this quote by Tracy Chevalier struck me as appropriate: “Say something worth the words.”

    Also, the first photo, made me think of this quote which I love: “Even dogs enjoy the beautiful nature.” (by Voetmann)

    the first photo:

    “Purple haze was in my brain,
    lately things don’t seem the same,
    actin’ funny, but I don’t know why
    ‘scuse me while I kiss the sky.”

    Reminded me of the freedom of my younger years.

  15. Julie says:

    My quote is for the second picture by Tara Morris. “Happy Feet” was the first words that came to mind as soon as I saw the photo. “Happy Feet” is the perfect quote for the photo and is the title of the song, and in the lyrics, of the song “Happy Feet” by Cab Calloway. It it also the title of the penguin movie by Warner Brothers.

  16. Ann says:

    My quote caption for Jillian’s photo is “Cowboy take me away” – Dixie Chicks.

  17. Beth B says:

    third photo

    caption:
    “I never made promises lightly
    And there have been some that I’ve broken
    But I swear in the days still left
    We’ll walk in fields of gold”

    From Sting … “Fields of Gold”

  20. Valerie says:

    I love all the photos but Jillian Lukiwski reminded me of the beautiful quote from Maya Angelou:
    In all the world there is
    No heart for me like yours.
    In all the world there is
    No love for you like mine.

  21. Valerie says:

    I’m sorry I forgot to add my link:

  22. Linda says:

    As soon as I saw the third photo I thought of the lyrics from Fields of Gold:
    So she took her love for to gaze awhile
    Upon the fields of barley
    In his arms she fell as her hair came down
    Among the fields of gold

    Will you stay with me, will you be my love?
    Among the fields of barley
    We’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky
    As we lie in fields of gold

    Love this beautiful song!

  23. Julie says:

    I love that third photo, pinned here: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/403846291558569105/

    I love the song “Summer Breeze” by Seals & Croft and this photo reminded me of the lyrics:

    Sweet days of summer,
    the jasmine’s in bloom
    July is dressed up
    and playing her tune
    And I come home
    from a hard day’s work
    and you’re waiting there,
    not a care in the world…

  32. Anne Marie Fowler says:

    Love the third photo!

    From Pablo Neruda’s poem, “Perhaps Not to Be is to Be Without Your Being”:

    suddenly, inspiringly, to know my life,
    blaze of the rose-tree, wheat of the breeze:
    and it follows that I am, because you are

  34. Kim McM says:

    I love the Tara Morris photograph and pinned it to my board, “Escape.” This quote sums of what I think captures the spirit of the photo: “Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers, and sisters, aunts and cousins, but only one mother in the whole world.” -Kate Douglas Wiggin

  36. Sandra H. says:

    I love the field of bluebonnets! The song “No Place But Texas” with the lyrics ‘God painted the bluebonnets in the fields’ by Willie Nelson is a favorite and reminds me of this picture.
