light through a crack_ shadow shot sunday

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

this, the shortest of months

is the darkest of months

but into the dark a little light will shine

a reprieve of bitter when i awake to optimistic sunshine

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

february sun most often brightens the eye but fails to warm the head

but sometimes, only sometimes, it spreads and fills the house, fills myself, in warmth like a wool hat on my head

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

i long to feel this distant furnace poised in the outside sky for myself

but dust that piles & bedrooms stale, beckon me, knowing they will be cleaned only by myself

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

it is the only mama, and oh, how at first she complains and laments the task is hers alone

who scrubs, makes domestic war, and airs out- but the pleasure of it slowly fills her, like the sun, on her alone

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

light pours and pours on rooms familiar, objects dear,

dust dances in brokah shots, but i think it rather adds, seems to endear

dirty finger- smudged glass reveal winter clouds are gathering up again

the sun, that fleeting winter furnace in the sky, disappears for good, but I know it will return again

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and the hope of it rises-stubborn as passing time

knowing each day it marches closer, stronger in its stride to spring time

and i feel it, it bursts out slivers of powerful comfort…

Like Light Through A Crack

Linking up with the international photographers at Shadow Shot Sunday 2, after a long, long absence.

Photography and prose makes me slow down, notice, and be thankful in that simple way.

And that is a good thing.

You should look in or join in because we could all use some more good things.

Cheers.
