Accentuate the Positive!



A placid scene of sea and sky.
But surely a giant shark floats by!
 Surely I see a monstrous fin!
Against such a creature we cannot win!
In such terrible situations
Concentrate on the cloud formations!
It almost becomes your bounden duty
To fill your mind with surrounding beauty!

Lurking 'things' here:

Hello, Brenda :)

I really like your photo today. The lonely litle island surronded by beautiful sea and sky :)

Have a great weekend :)

When I saw the title of your blog the words to the song Accentuate the Positive popped into my mind.

You gotta' accentuate the positive.
Eliminate the negative.
Ending with:
Don't mess with Mr. In between.

Much to my surprise, the post had nothing to do with the song and now I can't get it out of my head. :-(

Oops - I just read the comments and discovered that geraldgee had the same thought and beat me to it.

I love your sense of humor. To go with it, a nice silvery ocean and sky scene, with just a hint of color; lovely.

A fin is for inspiration - that's the whole of it! Lovely layers of grey here!
