Love Remembered by Leeo

*"My heart has rooms that sigh with dust
And ashes in the hearth.
They must be cleaned and blown away
By daylight’s breath.
But I cannot essay the task,
For even dust to me is dear;
For dust and ashes still recall,
My love was here

“I know not how to say Farewell,
When Farewell is the word
That stays alone for me to say
Or will be heard.
But I cannot speak out that word
Or ever let my loved one go
How can I bear it that these rooms
Are empty so?

“I sit among the dust and hope
That dust will cover me.
I stir the ashes in the hearth,
Though cold they be.
I cannot bear to close the door,
To seal my loneliness away
While dust and ashes yet remain
Of my love’s day.”*

I’ve always loved this poem and thought it went well with this image.

The poem is from the book ‘White Gold Weilder – The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant’ by Stephen Donaldson.

Photography is my passion and my favorite subject is nature. I am particularly drawn to photographing landscapes, misty mornings, flowers and nature macros, as well as creating unique artworks using digital enhancement techniques.

I live in the beautiful Adelaide Hills in South Australia and am extremely passionate about capturing the inspiring scenery that is to be found here.

    Beautiful image and lovely poem – (those novels used to be my favourite sci-fi/futurist books, but he went right off in his later additions to the series IMHO)
