Children, darkness waits.
Shall we brush away the light
with a wisp of grass?

  1. What exquisite words, like a koan, to accompany this simple (or very complex) photo. I’m breathless. I love it.

  3. A wisp of grass…nice inspirational post ~

  4. Indeed, this feels like a broom. a great metaphor to brush away the preconceived notions in our minds, to imagine what we think we see may become something different. This is not just a mere blade of grass…

  5. Wonderful capture and I love your words! Perfect!
