Pale Quiet (SWF)

SWF Quiet Gusto

Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse 12-11-10

Pale Quiet

liquid light

softly surrounds me as

I drown in the chaos of


I reach out for safety,

grab what I can

of the Pale Quietness

of Stillness

of Hope

  1. This makes me feel like I am there. So very peaceful and what a perfect shot.

  2. Absolutely lovely, both picture and words!!! I need to thank you for that! ~karen

  3. It's so blue and cold, unlike the desert.

  4. More beautiful than any postcard I've seen! I'm glad you have a place of peace nearby.

  5. Quiet Paths, thank you!

    Well Karen, all I can say to that is you are so welcome!

    Gaelyn, you are so right!

  6. Hold fast once you grab it! Beautiful poem and image, my friend. I love the sunshine and the stillness.

  7. Beautiful words to go with a beautiful - thought very cold looking - portrait.

  8. Beautiful poem and the scene is just gorgeous, Kathie! I have always enjoyed coastal scenery. Happy skywatching and birding!

  9. The serenity of this scene seeps into my bones...


    The sky-seekers, some people say,
    Do not favor night over day;
    They always look up,
    The sky is their cup,
    And keeping it full’s their cachet!
