PhotoHunt: Alive


This week's theme is "Alive."

A foggy morning in Venice. Some places and sights and even poems can make you glad to be alive.

Sun and fog in Venice

I Believe in All

I believe in all that has never yet been spoken.
I want to free what waits within me
so that what no one has dared to wish for

may for once spring clear
without my contriving.

If this is arrogant, God, forgive me,
but this is what I need to say.
May what I do flow from me like a river,
no forcing and no holding back,
the way it is with children.

Then in these swelling and ebbing currents,
these deepening tides moving out, returning,
I will sing you as no one ever has,

streaming through widening channels
into the open sea.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~

Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend.

Beautiful words and photograph. Some scenes and words are good reminders of how great it is to be alive. Happy weekend.

What a beautiful and inspiring poem. Wonderful photo choice too :) Happy weekend!


those are really beautiful words. and foggy days really make me more alive.

thanks for asking about the kitties. they have shown progress; except that the young one initiates play and the older one is not having any of it.


Ahhh, beautiful foggy morning and great poem! happy weekend!

Pure bliss - the photo and the words are surely inspirational. There's something about a Rilke pen.

Love the poem and the photo. Very thoughtful entry this week.
