Sunday Stills – Quality of Light

For Terri’s Sunday Stills our prompt this week is lights. Like a lot of folk, I immediately thought of Holiday lights. Honestly, they are virtually non-existent for us. It’s hard to string up lights around an RV and neither of us drive much at night for local viewing. After reading Terri’s post though, I realized that “lights” doesn’t necessarily mean Holiday. As an artist, I find I’m always looking for that particular … something, a certain quality of light that sparks the imagination, and ignites the soul.

Certain Quality of Light

The air alive with magic, the world awash
with a certain quality of light
eyes open to incandescent beauty
of the new day, brave and bright
my poor heart trembling,
I breathe, weeping with delight
The moment passed too quickly
but never will I forget the sigh
of a world alive with magic
and that certain quality of light

Dawn on the beach
Heceta Head Lighthouse – Florence, Oregon
Sunlight on Hibiscus
A dreamer can only find her way by moonlight
“Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow, lies the seed that with the sun’s light, in the spring becomes the rose”

And finally, for those of you who just NEED that Holiday Lights fix, my fav

Til next timeΒ  ~Peace ~JP
