April 17



She saw it
and applauded raucously.

Even though twas perilously evanescent,
clearly,
Heaven embedded itself in earth.

Aw, the embedding, every encounter an exchange. If only I understood this better!

Yes, keep 'em coming. I come for more raucous applause. Stunning photos. A playground of words.

To those new to my blog, it is Na Po Mo (National Poetry Month). While for many years I have written a haiku a day for the entire month, this year I changed the rules: This year I am posting photo and as many words as the date. (trying to not just describe the obvious in the picture). Play along if you like, post it on your blog. --Susan

In response to your poem and to your comment on it...Wow, Susan! Just...wow! I'm reminded of Stravinsky saying "The greater the limitations, the greater the art."

This is a wonderful poem about the picture!

"Perilously evanescent." Like so much of life and beauty.
