It's really very difficult to find grace and light in such emptiness, MB. It's what we all search for, it's what we all hope for. New dawn, new dawn, new dawn... perhaps?

I love
"spread your hands
open yourself to a calling,
a catch, a cry…"
And it's the best possible advice.

Awesome photograph! I can't stop looking at it--I'm crazy about that backlit sunlight! The grasses appear to be flying like a cloud of insects...and the colors--gorgeous...

Marja-Leena, just my attempt to pin it all down a bit. Thanks.

Michelle, that's the way the process makes me feel, too!

Mermaid, thanks for your insight.

Pauline, thank you!

Pat, thanks so much, as ever.

Cathy, the light shines of its own accord. Thanks for your kind words.

Sky, anticipation, yes. And hope, a whole lotta hope!

Snowsparkle, you honor me, thank you.

Charlie, but I think one has to empty oneself to make a place for what comes in! Not to mention getting the self bit out of the way, yes?

Richard, that's the turning point, isn't it, when things become possibility. An exciting moment! Thanks so much.

Polona, thank you very much!

Mary, that's the question I was trying to answer for myself! How I do and do not do it...

Dan, oh, I should have known you of all people would understand this! ;-) Thank you very much.

Alan, your responsiveness is greatly appreciated!

Anne, thank you, my friend.

rdl, thank you so much!

Firebird, they're actually leaves, thin leaves, which is why they appear to be flying... on an almost bare bush growing in the draw between two hills. I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was fun to shoot.

Ruth, double thanks! I'm pleased you enjoyed this poem!
