darkness comes


do not find fear in the dark . search for comfort often called quiet and calm

do not envision only darkness . picture stretching pines embracing a moon

do not hide from the dark . step out into the warm night and let it envelope you

do not take darkness for granted . feel awe standing on summer hot concrete with it

Beautiful. In college I took an astronomy course and got to use a very, very expensive and very large telescope to take close-up photos of the moon. It was amazing!

Ahhhh, it's a moon post! Lovin' it. I can't see the moon under this cloud of a heat wave in the Midwest. Thank you!!

"feel awed and standing on the hot concrete with it"

You captured my heart and mind with those words and I was transported exactly there!

Jewels said...

Nice moon shot :) Wonderful words.

This makes me sigh happy. The beauty in a moonlit night shines the Shekinah so sweetly. You capture it perfectly here--in word and image! I'm so glad you linked with Playdates, ELK. Fun to play together!

Seth said...

Stunning images and the perfect words to match.

Anna said...

Elk, these are stunning shots! So glad you embraced the night and its beauty - and brought your camera, too!!!

There is something lovely about being outside on a warm summer night but in the winter the stars seem to sparkle more. I am so glad we live away from the city lights so can see the stars.

Tracy said...

Oh, how wonderful... hard to feel fear night or darkness with Lady Moon gracing down on us. You've captured the magic so well here, Elk... :o) Happy new week, my friend ((HUGS))
