Lightly child, lightly

The curtain

In the August quietude and the silence

Of the tranquil morning,

Moves gently in the wandering air . . .

Beautiful moment.

Juan Ramón Jiménez, from “Lightness” in The Selected Writings of Juan Ramon

  6. I love silent beauty moments like that. Void of thought and self-repremation and talking heads. Thank you for reminding us to just BE.

    the image reminds me of exploring In the silence of Garnet Ghost Town, near Drumond, Mt…(run by the I think the Forest Service) one of the small log cabins dubbed the Honeymoon Cabin had a glass-less window with white, tattered lace curtains fluttering in the breeze…while I stood there I imagined the young woman standing partly obscured behind the curtains looking up the hill at the beautiful landscape, waiting in isolation…
