Hush to Recieve


there is a holiness in the setting sun
the exquisite quality of the light
tells us so
I've heard a hush
in daytime chatter
that beckons us to absorb this gift
hush to receive
light flows into us

Your pictures always seem so peaceful and still, a magical calm.

I saw a film the other day that had hunting season in America featured in it. I hope you are ale to eescape this in your location? The thought of gun fire amongst such serenity is saddening...

These words of yours perfectly describe your photos, Tammie. They are exquisite, hushed, and embody holiness. There is definitely a flow of that heavenly light. Both of the photos are breathtaking and quieting. Thank you.

Your cousin Miss Dickinson heartily approves the poem. The photographs are magnificent.

There is certainly a wholeness or sense of completion to a cycle, especially with the light of day telling us that it is time to relax and absorb the sensations of one's ongoing journey so one can enter new realms the following day. It is a time to reflect upon one's scenery in life, and where we want to go with it tomorrow.

Clytie said...

I have felt this hush at sunset. You have captured the feeling in both words and picture. Beautiful.

Kelly said...
