Veil of Tears – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

This is a photograph that I took of the winter sun low in the sky through the window. It has an hazy effect and had a melancholy feel about it. However, what I love about it is that it serves as a framework for the poem I wrote. I wrote it for those who are hurting and missing a loved one at this time of year, this one is for YOU!

Veil of Tears

by Mary Mikawoz 

As days change into nights
And nights into days
We see the passage of time 
Moments slipping by unnoticed

We trudge on in snow-laden streets
With cold in our feet, face and hands
But not in our hearts…

We remember those who have passed on
From one realm to another
We rejoice in their memories
And of the substantial love they gave us

We can choose to stand in a veil of tears
Wiping the currents of moisture from our eyes
Or simply initiate a wealth of gratitude 
For their Past Presence in our lives!

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

As days change into nights
And nights into days

Moments slipping by unnoticed

We trudge on in snow-laden streets
With cold in our feet, face and hands
But not in our hearts…

We remember those who have passed on

Alphabet Song of Positivity

Alphabet Song of Positivity – Photography & Poetry by Mary Mikawoz

I wrote these words to this poem or song of positivity a very long time ago – definitely over a decade ago, circa 2007. They are meaningful and are ones that I hope impacts many people in a positive way. As we enter the New Year tonight and transition into a very New Year of 2022, I hope and pray that everyone takes the initiative to put some or all actions into positive intentions and goals for themselves. I think we could bring the best parts of yesteryear and leave that which no longer serves us behind and reach for a new and brighter future and presence.

I took this photograph of the moon as it was waning back in May 2021 and we are like the lunar cycles, always changing with the seasons of the year.

Here is the poem.

These are “Insights” by Mary Mikawoz

“Anger is about unmet expectations.”
“Depression is anger turned inwards.”
“Anxiety is worrying about the future.”
“We all need goals – mini steps in life.”
“Live in the present – that is all we have.”

Softy Snowing

Softly Snowing

by Mary Mikawoz (2019)

It is starting to snow – softly and ever so eloquently
It rejoices and falls to the Earth
Displaying non-judgment
And good discretion

It is an act of nature
Ever so poetic
And brilliant in its execution

The snowflake
of itself is divine
Different each one
Designed by God

Wonderfully quiet and serene
The pleasantness of calm
In its absolute honour it descends to the ground.

Thistle Me This!

Poem and Photography By Mary Mikawoz

“Thistle me this!

Thistle me that!

The firmer you place us together

The harder it is for you to tear us apart!!!”

I was inspired to write this poem because of the inspiration that George D. Mestral received in developing Velcro from the concept of thistles in how they work and how they cling to you by observing how burdock and bur seeds attached themselves to his dog’s furs and to his clothing.  He examined them under a microscope discovering all the little hooks and then put it into action.

This Swiss electrical engineer thought of the idea in 1941 and invented the idea of Vclcro in 1948.  Did you also know that Velcro fasteners made of Teflon loops, polyester hooks, and glass backing are used in Space Stations in outer space?

From  a personal point of view, my family went to Poland when I was 6 years old. That summer we visited a relative’s farm.  I remember running through some normal fields and then realizing that I had beautiful little flowers stuck all over and on my skirt when my sister pointed them out to me.  I thought they were pretty until I tried to take them off and they stuck firmly to my clothing and pierced my fingers.  Then I thought they were nasty but now I just see them for the beauty that they are in this photograph that I took.
