Shadow Shot Sunday...Changes...


changes come over me
I seem so far away
green seas recall
stolen dreams
in empty houses
sheltering thee

strange winds sing
as I resolve
into it's golden voice
a voice of history
beckoning me
set her free

set her free
and face the sea
of green sonnets
as summers flee
and don't forget
you're missing me

I'll ne'er let go
it brings to me
peace
of times past by

are you following me
to a greener sea
shall I step away
and let your dreams
fly free
as

I'll ne'er tire of your olden ways...

I love your shadow shot for the day and I, too, wish we could all slow down a bit and enjoy life more! And such beautiful words, too!

Have a great day!

Lovely--beautiful light in the first one. And the Amish shot is great.

The scene is romantic, with the farmer using horses to plow the rugged. The past was hard, no mechanization and so on. The soft light and shadows seem to ass a warm glow to the artwork.

The Amish buggy is the modern iteration of a more romantic past...

Chris said...

Two great shots. I love the late afternoon sun on the picture.

Nice photo of olden times in the here and now.

Life was slower when we were children...but we didn't know it then. I don't think any century is really better than any other. They all have their positives and negatives.

But thank you for your poetry. It certainly made me think. ;-)

Love the subtle shadows on the painting and then the reality of a similar scene plus clearly defined shadow. Beautiful visuals for the yearning in your delightful poem!

Hope you are getting close to being all tucked into your business home. Often think of you!

Big Weekend HUG!

Hey Harriet said...

Loving that second photo! A wonderful poem and I hope your patience is holding out. I have faith in you! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)

Beautiful pictures and poem, love the horses. Good old times, they were the best, wish I could go back in time and relive my life ;), with my hubby, he is the best in my life. Great values, the old fashioned way, just as it should be, these days. Life would be much calmer and happier. Thanks for sharing, enjoy your day..

The sunlight on the painting was magnificent, adding a warmth and a presence. And the Amish cart reminds me of a wonderful peacefulness.

Pam said...

I enjoyed your wonderful words they made me pause and remember the small and simple pleasures I have in my life... thanks for the insight and your delightful and peaceful shadow shot.

Peace be with you, Pam :)

Sometimes I feel so sorry for our youth today..The speed we are going, they haven't had a chance to be children anymore. Great blog/poetry and pictures..

Martha Z said...

I love the shadow on the painting. There is a farmer who sells at the Farmer's Market I frequent who still plows his land with mules. I admire his dedication to a simple and sustainable life.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Love these shadow shots. I especially like the first one. Very creative!

Lily Hydrangea said...

beautiful shadows with a beautiful poem, as always!
Thanks.

Hildegarde said...

Great painting (well photographed) and the combination with text and photo is top.

David Zen-Kennedy said...

The photographs are lovely - the poem wonderful. I've watched the amish in Pennsylvania use their teams of horses to work the fields. It's like nothing else on earth. Nice work. . . The derelict homes and barns are something to see.

Gina said...

love both shots..and wonderful words too! :)

diane said...

Lovely nostalgic post ... your words resonate mightily and I feel much the same as many of who have already commented, though I'm not ready to become Amish ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
