For the light

you can sing in the dark
but remember to listen
make space in the dark
for the light to fall in

What a beautiful picture. And the poem - lovely - like a cross between a lullaby and a haiku.

Quite a beautiful photograph, mb. It captures that space in the dark for the light to fall.

Glad to see you posting again.

This photo has real visceral appeal and so does the poem, especially the first line for me. So simple....

Beautiful - the photo and the poem. Quiet.

Looks like you're taking that advice to listen to heart. Hope things are going well for you

Snow on the way, and I'd like to be sliding down that little bright 'slide' of water, warm and splashy...

...and even in these
depts, far from the
caress of light,
far from the concept
of vision, we may
yet see the profound
luminance of the
obscure, who set
their very souls
alight in celebration
of a life undaunted...

I did, and am glad you do too.

And I'm smiling -- what seemed to be fireflies turned out to be nebulae.

I'm happy that I found your site. "Make space in the dark/for the light to fall in"--yes. And also embrace the darkness for what it is. And the silence...
