Lightly child, lightly.


Perhaps we are here in order to say: house,
bridge, fountain, gate, pitcher, fruit-tree, window . . .
To say them more intensely
than the Things themselves
ever dreamed of existing.

  5. a gorgeous photograph David, well paired for the post.
    I love the intensely dark background and then suddenly, there is this beautiful stunning illumination within the depths of the black unknowingness.
