Long shadows on the edgelands

I live on those edgelands, passing from brick to wood from drains to rivers.
I wonder if the wind recognises the empty spaces where the leaves fell yesterday, or if the rain prefers to fall softly onto a field or a hard stone pavement that could be a sheet of granite... where do I search for the faces of my Gods... in the misty forest at twilight... or a solstice gathering at home.
Country or town our houses are no more than sophisticated and heated caves, our skyscrapers no more than soaring cliffs to birds.
Beauty is everywhere

Have a lovely week-end

Lynn we are in the shadows together. I just wrote a blog post this week that I will be sharing on November first about its shadow. Your beauty and poetry sink deep into my heart kindred quiet soul. I wish we could walk the misty path in silence together. xx

I'll wander along over here ... caught between the sentient wonders of the world and the unknown/unseen reaches of the borderlands. Your photographs, your words ... attuned always to the murmurs of heart and spirit.
