Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Poetic
Debbie illustrated her stanza of TS Elliot’s The Waste Land poem beautifully with references to Margate. The name reference made me laugh as I had just read another reason that he added an S to his name. As I am not English and don’t have a vast amount of photos from my times in England to illustrate my post, I shall have to with what I have here.
From the same poem, which has many stanzas, I have chosen this stanza and I feel my photo may be an Aussie interpretation. You have to know a bit about Australian insects and their behaviour to fully understand the part of the poem and my photo interpretation. All works well up to the last line. For those who could be unaware of my liking for all things in nature and could have an aversion to spiders, perhaps read the wonderful verse but proceed no further or as I would like, that you do have a quick peek to understand my reasoning for including this photo to match the poem.
“She turns and looks a moment in the glass,
Hardly aware of her departed lover;
Her brain allows one half-formed thought to pass:
“Well now that’s done: and I’m glad it’s over.”
When lovely woman stoops to folly and
Paces about her room again, alone,
She smoothes her hair with automatic hand,
And puts a record on the gramophone.”
Here is the full poem if you may be interested https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/47311/the-waste-land
If you have any questions why I used the photo and how it matched the words, just send me a comment please
Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Reverse
I had such a difficult time thinking of what I could contribute to One Word Sunday. I hope this works and also a song I really like as well to go with the theme

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Mirror or Reflection
This post contains an image of a spider – for those who don’t like spiders
The old Volkswagen hub cap
Looking across the street
The Huntsman Spider takes a good look at herself
I can’t help myself when there is a mud puddle around.
