Are they whispering—
space and shadow, grass and stone—
to your famished soul?

  1. nature indeed whispers to our famished soul… nice one ~

  2. The outcropping offers a stark view of a desolate place, The tree once providing shade, but now fallen. Happily, the arid land allows for life in the form of the grasses. Harsh, yet beautiful!

  3. Nature communicates in many ways. Great words.

  4. Question is – are we listening? Well dome MMT..

  5. if space and shadow whispered together, would it be in harmony?

  6. “to your famished soul” – WOW!

  7. Interesting observation. Very vivid.

    In a desolate landscape:
    Nature’s hard edges.
