What is the moon doing to us? Waning in the depths of winter, the cold ungraced with snow. Come back, soft and frosty blanket. Please don’t leave us sloshing in the rain. Come back, your lightness, capricious orb, once so splendiferous. Please don’t leave us stranded in the pangs, no matter how exquisite, of Elvis, as in Costello, circa Imperial Bedroom.
In 2008, I had a dream that inverted a recurring, anxious theme. Stuck in a taxi, traveling the wrong way. Panic! And the driver was always oblivious. But this time, for the first time, I noted the error calmly and the driver said “no problem” – and turned around in the right direction. Glimmers of equilibrium restored. Hidden and powerful moon, your devotee wants you back.
Funny how powerful dreams are in helping us grow. Beautiful images!
Thank you, “Print to Digital”! And you’re so right about dreams: woke up this morning to see it has snowed during the night. ^_^
Gorgeous images! (particularly Expecting April and Deeply Orchid).
Good morning, Martha, and so good to get your comment! Looking at April and Orchid, it just strikes me that they’re similar in their tangle of leaves, the first from an ailanthus tree, the second, a philodendron. Of the whole lineup, I think my favorite is the last one, Mirage (you might recognize the source painting from a good friend of ours dining-room wall).
Thanks for the likes, Bzebza and oneanna65!!
Cat, sorry we got interrupted. I love the B&W photo of the tree intermingled here among the “almost blues”… I think your text at the beginning reads like a prose poem, it’s just beautiful and rich (like fudge).
Many thanks, Susan!
Hello, Josie, and delighted to see your “like” here. If I had to choose just one post, “Almost Blue” would be at the top of my thoughts.
