Keep The Light

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

Keep the Light,
Tuesday

The Light,  Revealed

 

 

Inspiration

 

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.”

    • thank you Kevin; I’m glad you enjoyed it. I love to discover what is within the depths and layers with art, painting or photography… and for me that is relaxation. cheers, Debi
