Swan lake

After days and days of snow and rain,

The air is washed clear

And ready to receive the golden bowl of the sun

As it rises into the blue

Dawn of a new day.

  81. I find these images profoundly peaceful. Just looking at the image with the two swans, the words of Kahlil Gibran about relationship, came to me, “Let there be spaces in our togetherness.” Thank you for the beauty.
