Evening Dance

Here is the place where loveliness keeps house.

Between the river and the wooded hills.

Here you may meet with beauty.

Here she sits gazing upon the moon,

or all the day tuning a wood-thrush flute,

remote, unseen;

it is she who flits from rock to rock,

a form of flying spray,

shouting, beneath the leave's tumultuous green.

Wow, these photos are magnificent Lisa! I especially love the close cropped one where one arm is blurred a bit. What a great post, so wonderful to see the tiny details of how beautiful a simple twined vine can be. And the poem is perfect!

PS. Happy Birthday! :)
