“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”
~Henri Cartier-Bresson

A Poem

My sorrow, when she's here with me,
Thinks these dark days of autumn rain
Are beautiful as days can be;
She loves the bare, the withered tree;
She walks the sodden pasture lane. R. Frost

Are we on the same brain wave or what? I have another one I am putting up Monday, so how about we call it Muse Mondays? We will link to each other when we do it?

This is beautiful, I cannot help but words come to mind when I look at photos like this, and the rain begins...or should I say flood!

Beautiful poem Elly Mae. You are one that seems to post just what I am in need of hearing at just the right time. It has been a rough summer. The Dr found a tumor on Mel's uterus and is doing an exploratory surgery the 14th of this month. She is doing such a good job of being strong for her little family. I am hoping and praying that all will be alright. She is Chris and the kids world. Love ya Elly Mae.
