When you possess light within, you see it externally. ~Anaïs Nin
In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary. ~Aaron Rose
All of us have a place in history. Mine is clouds. ~ Richard Brautigan
still looking for faith
we reflect on redemption
so much more needed
#haikuwordgame #haiku (using: needed, reflect, faith)
watching moonlight glow
if I extend my finger
can I touch the clouds

We could almost taste the sadness in the air,
linking hands we ran,
pretending not to care,
knowing death chased us still…
How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon? ~ Dr. Seuss
The most important thing in illness is never to lose heart. ~Nikolai Lenin
My best friend is sick.
How can I think about anything else?
How do I put words on paper?
I spend hours just watching her sleep
She sleeps a lot.
In the rare moments when she smiles
and wags her tail
My gaze turns into a mad stare
as I try to memorise the moment,
sear it into the brain
Just in case
those moments are numbered.
The experts have placed
a limit on her movements
But today we took a brief walk
in the park with her red coat on
Alas, no ball throwing
Even so, she was in heaven.
The park was bleak and wintery
with seagulls playing the part
of carrion crow.
I paused from my worry to take this shot.
She pays a price for that twenty minutes of joy.
Now she sleeps…
Look round and round upon this bare bleak plain, and see even here, upon a winter’s day, how beautiful the shadows are!
Alas! it is the nature of their kind to be so. The loveliest things in life, Tom, are but shadows; and they come and go, and change and fade away, as rapidly as these!
~ Charles Dickens
In photography there are no shadows that cannot be illuminated.
~ August Sander
Impossible to escape
this time of year
They come earlier and earlier
Afternoon barely exists
or rather exists lightless.
However, the eye continues
to look for colour
and sometimes finds it.
This day, a pale, bleak, watery
colour settles over my dreams
And I cannot help but wait
And hope that in my waiting
a kind of magic is born.
A light thought hidden
I am waiting
The world is all gates, all opportunities, strings of tension waiting to be struck. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true ~ Lyman Frank Baum
My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky. ~
Although the sun was shining, the sky just didn’t want to stop raining. Dixie and I dashed out in between rain showers for a walk.
I reached into my bag for the all important ball and as I looked up, I saw a rainbow! It was the most magical of moments because it was so unexpected. I suppose that is what makes seeing a rainbow so joyful. One never expects to see one.
So, needless to say, I spent quite a lot of time trying to photograph my little rainbow, but it was far more difficult than I had anticipated. There is this slightly disappointing one: Rainbow in the park . The actual rainbow was so much more vivid…
After chasing rainbows, with occasional tosses of the ball, for quite some time, my magical rainbow disappeared but I spotted this view through some shrubbery…
Busy chasing rainbows
I found you
Perhaps beauty is
just the willingness
The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us.~ Ashley Montagu
