Oh, I'm happy to see this post.

I understand about getting up the energy. It's been some of that for me, and also job hunting guilt--feeling I should be filling out an application instead of posting. So many pictures I wnat ot post and things to report.

the summer'd Brandywine,

I love your word form transformations, Jan.

like breaths never drawn

So sad. Poor Frodo homesick for the life in the Shire he was denied.

Mechtild, I didn't care for the Grimshaw until I scrolled so that the moon was covered and I could focus on the subtle landscape in the middle I was missing between the bright moonlight and the dark ruins--lovely.

Frodo's Lamp is a lovely term for the moon, Jan. I love the peace he finds in knowing the moon he sees shines upon the Shire and is with him still.

Light of small

ancient beauty.

In all my hours,

you shine.


And a pretty silvered painting like the light shining fromt he ringbearer.

You're job hunting again>? Yikes. I should get my fingers and eyes busy and check out your LJ to see what's been happening with you.

These were beautiful poems, no> And I'm glad you found things to like in Grimshaw's moonlit river scene. I posted a slightly bigger version of it, because of your comment, so that the details could better be seen. I think it's a beautiful piece. I'd love to see the original. And I'd absolutely posititutely love to see work by Carlsen in person. I've only just begun to view and marvel over his beautiful still lifes. I've only looked for his landscapes and seascapes while searching for poem illustrations.

LT! I'm very happy that you enjoyed these.....

Mechtild is such a wonder at picking wonderful images to go with the words. There are *no* adequate words to thank her with. It's just......just a thing of wonder and beauty to me.

LT....i hope your own words (and images) will be flowing again soon. It's very stressful to be without work. You are in my thoughts, always.
