To Ad or Not to Ad   2 comments

When gentle sunsets glow with golden light

and shining waves wash sweetly ‘cross the sunlit sands;

When lofty mountain heights peek o’er, at the very edge of sight

and watchful gulls wheel briskly o’er pebbled shore;

Then is the setting so sublime

that eye can’t want for more…

Yet then is ad displayed o’er scene,

obscenely staking out some space

better left to wind or wave or moor.

Agreed was I to let some ads take place

but something subtle and sublime is lost

when jarring subjects impose their brightly colored ads,

and on poets space,  implore.

  1. Exactly. It was so jarring, I recently felt compelled to get the “No Ad” feature.
    Beautiful photos such as these, with advertisements right below— Incongruous.
