Ode To Enchanted Light


Ode To Enchanted Light

Under the trees light
has dropped from the top of the sky,
like a green
latticework of branches,
on every leaf,
drifting down like clean
white sand.

A cicada sends
its sawing song
high into the empty air.

The world is
a glass overflowing
with water.

by Pablo Neruda

Hi Anne, wonderful quote and photos. It's a great way to start off my morning.

Thanks so much for the beautiful thoughts and images.

Perfect images for that perfect poem!


Thanks Kathy and Annie, I'm so glad you both enjoyed this. I came across the poem last night, and that top photo popped into my mind instantly! I love the image of the world as a glass overflowing, what joy and optimism and hope that line conveys.


So very beautiful, Anne.

Love the shots, love the poem!
