stillness and light

at days end

stillness and light
here we are again
such a long day
are you holding all the moments
that so quickly passed me by
 
stillness and light
time has taken my love
my shame
my ruin
and laughter
and made memories of them all
 
stillness and light
i would ask you
to politely return them all
but i know you won’t
but it’s okay
 
stillness and light
don’t go
linger just a while
i love this moment
and hate to see it end
but moments are ending all the time
 
stillness and light
it’s your beauty
speaking to my soul
untold wonder
truth
and that nagging sense of eternity
 
stillness and light
i may not be here again at days end
so thank you
thank you for today

River and Sky

River and Sky

I have been a runner for many years and, while I do still run, I am bicycling a lot more. This is one of my favorite destinations. It is a park along the banks of the Illinois River in Morris, IL. I have taken lots of shots here and I am always fascinated at how much a single location can change it’s character due to the weather and the change of season. This was a particularly beautiful day.
