vanilla sunlight and meltwater

walking home ... 
vanilla sunlight cradled in the many fingers of a kind tree . . . 
meltwater on the river holding the reflections of the trees on the other side . . .

"you and i can turn and look
at the silent river and wait. we know
the current is there, hidden; and there
are comings and goings from miles away
that hold the stillness exactly before us."

the silence of silences

inside a so very still moment beside the river this morning .....

"Here is the silence of silences
Which dreams of becoming a sound, and the sound
Which will perfect itself in silence."

one last brush stroke


walking home.
early evening mid-january. 
one last brush stroke of colour from the sun.
me, watching the light fade and firing thanks out for everything . . . . .

this little space

when i stop to focus my eyes and camera on a tiny space like this, i'm drawn to consider the many places and experiences that the water making up this gathering of crystals has been . . . .
