the fitful tracing

a season's fallen bounty still ripe with colour





beauty is momentary in the mind
the fitful tracing of a portal

words excerpted from "peter quince at the clavier" by wallace stevens

Insightful Wallace Stevens (just the title of that poem has always been enough for me), and the image bountifully paired. The quote sends me round and round, fitfully, yet strangely satisfied.

I like the quote Steven. Beauty is often just a glimpse by accident or luck...a portal through the ordinary hubris.

I left a comment this morning, but must not have hit the right buttons.... Great quote, but another masterful photo! I need to get a macro lens, I think. I'm still trying to learn my new D5000. (It's already obsolete: The "new" 5100 has replaced it) Is this a macro or just a standard lens?

I love the pic steven, and the words you chose are stunning. I also love Ruth's comment.
The wow factor is infinite here steven, thanks!
