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.

Oceanic Dusk

Oceanic Dusk– Photography by Mary Mikawoz

There is something to be said about seeing the potential in something or someone. There are the ingredients of greatness in everyone but we need to tease it out bit by bit.

Most people give up too easily and look the other way without seeing what can actually come to be if only effort is applied. Keep going, it is a just a matter of time before greatness and ease come into your life. There is always a glimmer of hope even if you think it is not worth it.

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.

Growing Old

Growing Old – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

This photograph is not of sadness for a barn that has seen better years and usage but is one of hope too. The barn is boarded up and barely standing. The old red tractor seems to be working still and is in use in making old-fashioned rectangular bails of hay.

One does not have to give up that which is aged. It is an antique and with the passage of time as with people, we should venerate and respect the elderly.

I see a happy face on the barn as one who reminisces of glorious by-gone days. I have put sparkles of light throughout the picture to offer feelings of expectancy in the future. Wishing everyone the best in their pursuit of their lives no matter whatever their calendar age or years.

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.

He Statue

He Statue

I did definitely take this photograph but I can not take credit for the original craftsmanship or integral beauty and perfection of this marble statue. I found it in the Musée d’Orsay which is found in Paris, France. 

It is exquisite in its detail but I wanted to add some effects to it and so I did. It is so well put together that it looks as if a real male in the nude is sitting there. It is called “Despair” or “Le Désespoir” and was created in 1869 by Jean-Joseph Perraud. Someone could look at this and think this is a picture for the year of 2020 but I do not see “Despair,” but see a man reposing and reflecting upon life that this year has offered us and now hoping for a better future that 2021 and onwards will bring forward for humankind. 

According to Wikipedia, “The Musée d’Orsay is a museum in Paris, France, on the Left Bank of the Seine. It is housed in the former Gare d’Orsay, a Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900. The museum holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1914, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography.”

Dark Farmland

Dark Farmland

I took this photograph because I liked the composition of the farm house, the grain bin and the hay bale. I have created a digital artwork like a painting from it using the colours present in the picture. It is taking the best of black and white while highlighting it with colours as well. 

It seems like there are dark clouds in the background while sunlight still shines on the foreground. I feel there is a beauty despite it being a gloomy and sulky image. Where there is darkness, there is also a glimmer of hope. 

It was taken in the Interlake area of Manitoba.
