“Divinity must live within herself:
Passions of rain, or moods in falling snow;
Grievings in loneliness, or unsubdued
Elations when the forest blooms; gusty
Emotions on wet roads on autumn nights;
All pleasures and all pains, remembering
The bough of summer and the winter branch.
These are the measures destined for her soul.”
-Wallace Stevens (1879-1955), from “Sunday Morning”

Beautiful what you can do with just a duo-toned photograph, Gina Marie. I love the juxtaposition of stark black floral blooms with the optimistic text you’ve chosen. Very lovely!
Thanks, Patricia, for your always-thoughtful commentary. The stark lines and flowery silhouette of this branch drew my immediate attention. I was so fortunate to have brought a camera with me that day.
