Dancing on the edge

I have lots more photos from Portugal to share with you —

But I thought I’d take a break this week

And show you the beauty of raindrops

Dancing on the edge of

Beautiful green leaves (some would say weeds).

Raindrops 1.jpg

These shots remind me of a lovely Tagore quote:

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.

  2. Rhapsody in green – gorgeous! As you may now our PBS station has featured a British drama series entitled “Dancing on the Edge.” Your title today reminded me of a show I follow regularly here in the States. I had not heard the Tagore quote before, so maybe there’s a connection going there too.
