  1. Love your shots of the Aztec ruins and they’re always fascinating! Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. I’d love to access your ability to see such wondrous tales in your environs!

  3. So looks like Chaco, doesn’t it? Except for the scale and the fact that there are some living plants…Nice!

  4. Your words are wonderfully spine tingling…a good thing. Love the photo too. I often take photos of windows/holes in walls. Seeing through…?

  5. Ooh, such a word picture! I love this.

  6. And, thanks to your photo and poem, I can hear their shadow song too! Delightful!

  7. Nice combination of picture and poetry. Shadow songs and ancestral spirits just seem to go together. Great job.

  8. A sense of light beyond light, shadows beyond shadows, worlds beyond worlds! Beautiful.

  9. Even in the smallest of space, the shadows still creep in.

  10. beautifully done

  11. I remember learning about those small openings for the spirits. Our guide didn’t express the story so beautifully though. Thank you.

  12. What a great photo, exquisite framing the windows, love it!

  13. That is a good one, too, recalling another angle seen of this structure!

  14. I’m not sure I can express or explain how this makes me feel, except to say that it gives me tingles.

  15. Great framing with interesting shadows.
    Thanks for your comment. My shadow is from a roller shutter.
