The Golden Ratio: The Rule of Thirds… (Multi-Photo)


(This is just satire on the Rule of Thirds — the simplified form of the Golden Ratio —  which is all the rage in photography realms; most everyone has used it, including myself; those of you who use it or who have written about it… please do not be offended.  Note:  Within the poem, switch “parts” with where “countries” occurs… and “country” with where “part” occurs.)


the rule of thirds

came by

it divi





it sectioned nature’s flowing traits

with man-made lines

in graphed points of space

the rule of thirds

jumped in

it drank a fifth of gin

it cut up the world

into little


and it

sucked nine squarish

chocolate mints

the rule of thirds

marked its spot

in a

tic tac toe game so hot

everyone wanted 

to draw up their lines


everyone figured why not

the rule of thirds

squared away

it decreed a superior way

it di

vided (countries)

of the whole for itself

for its superhuman

(part)men’s wealth

precisely properly

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...
