Cottage Morning


Harmonious blends of lights and darks appear and shift.  
Stillness, Motion, and More~I am fully there, participating rather then viewing.

* "Our purpose is not to imitate the crane but to become it..."

Just this morning, the sun cut its path through thick clouds of ground mist, previews of coming attractions..

And now summer is melting into early autumn in the northern hemisphere....shifting light and color become poised for cooler temperatures and longer nights.

** I feel like I am visiting William Blake's Inn~I pick up the book and read:

The Marmalade Man Makes a Dance to Mend Us
"....Tiger, Sunflowers, King of Cats
Cow and Rabbit mend your ways.
I the needle, you the thread-
follow me through mist and maze...." 

Then....Blake Leads a Walk on the Milky Way....

I chuckle:
Blake Tells the Tiger the Tale of the Tailor
"....On windy days and moonless nights
Blake wears a suit of shifting lights
The tailor now has grown so clever
He stitches light and dark together...." 

 Mists of Time

I reflect:
** "Will you come?" said the sun.

"Soon," said the moon.

"How far?" said the star.

"I'm there," said the air.

For now, Wood Aster stars are still blooming here.

*** "....Where Do You Notice Shifts?  "Separation is Only an Illusion...."
