I have recently been introduced to the game Boomshine by the fabulous Cobs from The Cobweborium Emporium. Go and have a look at it, if you dare. I don’t have a lot of time as it is, and now I have considerably less to spare. I’ve spent the last hour trying to get through round twelve. One more go led to one more go, and so on, but I just had to continue to delve. And now, this is all I can see:

But then I started thinking. This is where imagination begins. Shapes from the colours. Cats eyes peering from out of the confusing kaleidoscope of creation. Half Moons, Full Moons, even New Moons appear within the mix. Do you see anything between and betwixt?

The fewer the colours, the harder the shapes are to see. But are they? I mean, I see a tree. Christmas lights through frosted glass… a surprise celebration through teary eyes. Colours are more than just colours to me.

Each colour a memory. A nice lasting thought. A cherished possession. A gift that I bought. A twinkle. A dream. Perhaps even overlapping worlds never before seen.

They may spread out, fade away, start to thin or dissolve, but when I see a colour my imagination begins.

Lights dancing on a gentle breeze; a non-linear rainbow sent to please; an arrangement in the darkness perhaps to tease…

They may spread apart far and wide, these spheres of colour with secrets inside.
With dreams of reflection, a chance of hope, and an excursion from the ordinary brought into scope.
The imagination is whatever we want it to be – we just need to be open, to be open to see.

  4. Beautiful and mesmerizing images, Tom. I could easily immerse myself in them. I’m afraid to check out the game because I love computer games and spend too much time on my computer as it is. But, my curiosity will get the best of me and I will have to see what the game has to offer.

  5. Hello you rascal. 😊
    Go on… you blame me for you having less time than you used to have. Me? ME?? But … I’m innocent. I’m … I’m… I’m an Angel! 😇 <— See? A Halo wearing, fully paid up member of the Angel Brigade!
    I wouldn’t lead a fly astray!
    I just share stuff that I’ve been playing for years.

    Ok … Ok… it’s my fault. LOL.
    But …. I will shoulder the blame because I know that you’re enjoying that game sooooo much that you’d probably cry if it was taken off you now. LOL
    Plus . . . it’s an innocent little thing and so darn cute when the bubbles pop. So musical. Love it. (now you see why I’ve been playing that game for years! lol).
