Today, I’m thinking of all those — known to me and unknown to me — facing grief, loss, health challenges and worries, or any other form of pain and suffering…
May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
may the clarity of light be yours,
may the fluency of the ocean be yours,
may the protection of the ancestors be yours.
And so may a slow
wind work these words
of love around you,
an invisible cloak
to mind your life.
from Anam Cara, A Book of Celtic Wisdom

that is an absolutely beautiful wish! And the beautiful image is a perfect pairing
Sherry…what beautiful words from you today. Just what I needed. The image is beautiful and goes so well with the poetry. The image is inviting and warm…amazing
What beautiful golden water and silhouettes. Lovely thoughts for those who are suffering – and there is always someone going through hard times somewhere.
Both the image and the thought are truly beautiful, Sherry.
Golden light tracing silhouettes and that wonderful liquid surface… an arresting and beautiful image, Sherry. May all those you were sending comfort to with these words find it.
Very touching! And beautiful tropical moon shot.
Lovely – both the image and the text!
Such a beautiful and sensitive photo Sherry…I love the silhouettes…and the deep meaning of those words…Serendipity…yesterday in church…we recite a short poem of John O’Donohue…from For Light…I’m saving it for a post…we do connect…
I know it has been hard for you lately, Gracie, and I’m so glad this has brought you some comfort…Hugs xo
Thanks so much, Barbara. There is a kind of magic to it, that never fails…
Sending you an extra virtual hug and healing thoughts, sweetie!
Thank you for this lovely post today Sherry. A very hard day for me today…just what I needed.
Beautiful work, Sherry! Love the silhouette. And having lost a few people who are very close to me, the poem is so comforting. Thank you.
A gorgeous image, always love this type of photography at this time of day.
