eternal –
this flame deep within
a slow burn

Wish & Magic

Photo taken at the Terminal Market in Brooklyn where all things plants and food can be found. Spring is the time of year when the romantic gardens in my head bears little resemblance to the reality in my yard. Nonetheless, I dream on and capture it all in photographs.

at the dawn of spring
magical awakenings
wishes start anew
old worries dissipate and
I’m a part of all things new

Arise! Spring has sprung
Mountain creek is holding court
A roaring spring melt

Inspired by:

O slumbering one, the beloved has arrived, arise!

Brush off the dust of sleep and self, arise!

Behold the good will has arrived,

Come not before him with tears, arise!

The mender of concerns has come to you,

O heavy-hearted one, arise!

O one afflicted by separation,

Behold the good tidings of the beloved’s union, arise!

O you withered by autumn,

Now spring has come, arise!

Behold the New Year brings a fresh life,

O withered corps of yesteryear, up from your tomb, arise!

Clouds & Spring

the light of the sun
in hiding behind dark clouds
a rainy spring day

I embrace the first raindrops
thankful for hidden blessings
