I want to but.....

Words are the clothes that thoughts wear--
   only the clothes.
                               Samuel Butler



I want to tell you about the sights and sounds that surround me

of those whispering pines in the breeze

of a constant unknown humming

of a whistling tune echoing across the cool clear water coming from nowhere


making this girl smile while remembering a woman she loved whistling that same tune long ago

of acorns falling and landing on the tin roofs with a bang

of three women with coffee in hand chatting about the beauty that surrounds


all watching a girl sitting on the end of a dock waiting for words that may never come.

Peaceful blank words spread across the waters

across the dock

overtop of this girl 

floating to the top of the oak trees that throw their acorns to the ground

reminding this girl waiting for the right words


that it is OK if there are none.

  12. Your post made me think of this song...I have always loved Simon and Garfunkel.

    Hello darkness, my old friend,
    I've come to talk with you again,
    Because a vision softly creeping,
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence.

  14. What wonderful images, Buttons!!! I love that heron in the last image! They fly away almost before I see them...
    But the oak leaf and the acorn - that is my favourite image of the lot!! I am in Woodstock, and it is another grey day, but I should go for a walk anyway...

  17. Grace girl ... the beauty of this place and your photos is simply stunning. I wish I could be there soaking in all the scents and sounds and those words hanging in the air ... so peaceful and yet so full of life and appreciation for those moments that we can have all to ourselves ... I want to lock them up to keep them forever and savor them when need be.
    Gorgeous post : )
