Inspired by: Cat Stevens “Morning has broken”

lyrics by Eleanor Farjeon

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the word

Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God’s recreation of the new day

Scanned slide taken October 1977 in Bremen, Germany. Very basic work done. Cropped,
blur on corners, dodge and burn layers.

    This is so very pretty…we buried my grandmother today and I can almost see her walking down this path, into the mist and eventually out of my sight and into heaven on the other side. A beautiful representation of the spiritual transition from life to death to heaven!

    Thank you for this manny : ) It touched my soul deeply. It is a soothing image I am carrying in my mind’s eye along with every other image of the last few weeks.

  • Sorry to hear of your loss Lynn.This is one time when words fail to
    linder the pain.My thoughts and prayers are with you at this moment.
