So beautiful, both the photo and the poem. I am also comforted by the "indifference" of the natural world, the beauty that just arrives because...well, that's the way the day ends and starts, wrapped in beauty. Thank you!
Steve, your reply to Mary Lee's poem is lovely-"wrapped in beauty".
I've been playing around with short tanka (obviously), trying to work on the hinge, or pivot point -- in this case, connecting human and natural.Decemberclouds race dark fromthe northyour smilea barrel stove
I would love to see an image that reflects your thoughts, Steve. Clouds race dark - what I see in the morning rush out here.
Thank goodness for the "barrel stoves" in our lives!
I don't think I will ever look at another sunset or sunrise without thinking of your poem. I would love to have this framed and on my wall.
Mary Lee, your perspective on natural beauty is a tribute to the majesty of nature. I especially like the last line of the poem.
Mary Lee, I wrote an early morning poem and a shoutout to what you have built at Poetrepository. Thank you.http://beyondliteracylink.blogspot.com/2015/12/morning-thought.html
Thanks, Carol! Glad you are joining us!

Ah, this has such a feeling of memory (and time) to my ears. Thank you!
