Rainier (Pollinated)When asked what I see,
It's rather easy to be
Not at all sensational
But when I speak what I observe,
The ball's now thrown with a curve,
A city becomes atmosphere,
With smog and towers far and near
So truly, is it much surprise
A sunset (or perhaps sunrise)
Creates such powerful imagery
Beyond what the eyes chose to see
A mountain reminds of friends gone by,
A forest speaks of epochs passed
A lake reflecting wonderfully
Missing only a sailboat's mast
The picturesque is peaceful,
That calm continues on
It warms my heart to know today
Not all the world's beauty is gone.

They should clear up most things for you.
For members looking to create something for the group, just take a look in the "Seeking Pollination" folder. Find something that inspires you and start creating. Remember that what you create has to be in a different medium than what inspires you, but other than that go wild.
The pieces I've posted in the External Pollination gallery are examples of what I mean. In each case I took a piece of visual art and wrote a story based on that picture. I could also have taken a photo or crafted a sculpture based on the picture, as long as I'm working in a medium different from the original work.
The idea is to form stronger ties between the various sections of dA, and to create some cool stuff in the process.
If this seems like something you'd like to be doing, even if only once in a while, please go ahead and join the group.
If you wish to submit to the "Seeking Pollination" folder, feel free to.
If you have any questions about the group feel free to leave a comment or send a note.
