In my drive today,
I came upon leaves lit up
by the sunlight…

the leaves were
somewhat ordinary,
a bit worn for wear
mottled and thread bare
for the life it’s lived…

lit up by sun
they were transformed
into vessels of light
and made all the more
extraordinary and beautiful…

reminding me
how when we
are lit up
with our own inner light
we are transformed
we shine
we are made more beautiful…

and the miracle
of all we are
and all we see
is revealed…

Photography has been my passion and poetry/verse has been an evolution of expression. My inspiration and appreciation comes from connecting to the beauty of Nature which I feel is truly an expression of the Divine. In the best sense ~ there is no true divide ~ just seemingly endless possibilities in forms of expression & representation…
