the long poem of winter walking



"By ceasing to question the sun
I have become light,

Bird and wind.

My leaves sing.

I am earth, earth

All these lighted things
Grow from my heart."


~ Thomas Merton





A quiet post, from a winter walk, a few days ago. The soft grey sky, winter light, the long poem of winter walking....all these lighted things....

  1. Shawna, I have not commented in awhile, though I do come here everyday for my "moment of zen", as one who is less gifted with words might say. I appreciate the beauty of winter you share and today's first photo looks positively 3D. Your photographs and their compositions are more than visual. They make me want to reach out and touch or step into the moment with you (with my heaviest coat on, of course).
