Imagine, if you will, the stillness of

The very early morning – the world

Wrapped tightly in sleep and fog.

Suddenly, the mist is pierced

By magical fingers of light.

An illumination of world and soul –

Where the light does not reveal anything,

But is itself the revelation.

    Have you ever thought about combining these beautiful blog entries in a poetry photo book? I would be proud to own such a book, and enjoy looking though it…

    It would be lovely to be able to look through such poetry and images on paper…
