A Fading Gesture...Peace--Shadow Shot Sunday



A fading gesture
in a winter's light
brings faith
and harmony
and peace...into sight.


Always near at hand
this prayer is unfurled
through bowed heads and hearts
of human-kind here
and in all of our world.


Our eyes are wide opened
to what we could be,
to share in a moment
not stealing a breath,
but just to be free.


What is this word HOPE,
do we know what it means...
to be alive in the moment
to be all we can be,
to share with a fellow and follow our dreams...

of Peace on Earth and Good Will to All Things...




It's that time of the week to follow your shadows over to Hey Harriet, please join our group of shadow-chasers.

I have chosen three shadows this week, as they convey a spirit of faith and hope to all and to bring new light into the shadows that we harbor in our own lives in hopes that we may grow and prosper, each one of us, into a new world and new season of growth for all living things...
and to bring PEACE to a world in distress...and in memory of our fallen troops worldwide.

PEACE...

Great photos. I especially love the first one. The shadow is so faint but it's there; just as hope sometimes is.

And the poetry you wrote to accent the photos is just brilliant. Beautiful post!

Happy Solstice!
