Keep The Light

Roethke quotes, deep in their roots, keep the light, flower photography,

I love all things inspiring, heartening. Encouraging.

And so, when your night falls dark and cold, remember ….


“Deep in their roots,

all flowers

Keep the Light.”


Theodore Roethke



Roethke quotes, deep in their roots, keep the light, flower photography,
Keep the Light,



Roethke, keep the light, flower photography,
The Light,  Revealed





Artists give gifts.

We seek to encourage and inspire.




Roethke’s  beautiful words woke me from a weary tiredness this Tuesday;  Inspiring me to share this quote.

Both photographs  are  revealing their truth.


The first first shows the drooping fatigue and tired, worn out appearance of the rose.

The second reveals a much brighter Light.  The floral stars are standing stronger, bright and shining.  Crisp and sharply  defined edges, lead us to believe… they have indeed “kept the light.”

    1. thank you, Andrew! and that worked like a charm, the hip is so much better! My overdoing on the weekend was just plain… silly. One wonders why you do things when you know the outcome 🙂
