Visual Poetry #26 (For One Suspended Moment of Peace)

November 30, 2012 039

…dark grey December sky…it was one pleasant photo shoot I did last Saturday afternoon at Charles Sauriol Conservation area though it was so cold…those tiny flowers above caught my attention…I went nearer, aimed my camera and clicked away…I love close-up shots…there is that connection, that feeling of intimacy with the subject…likewise, I saw an inexplicable calmness, a quiet interlude that beckons one to stop and dwell in one sweet moment of peace…woes and worries were set aside even for one suspended moment…and I became one with those flowers…a quiet realization…an illumination of the beauty and magic of simple things and small moments…and I became aware of grace and mercy and blessings…and most of all, of love…                                     and then i simply walked away…
