Lunar Lavender


“THERE are strange shadows fostered of the moon,
More numerous than the clear-cut shade of day….
Go forth, when all the leaves whisper of June,
Into the dusk of swooping bats at play;
Or go into that late November dusk
When hills take on the noble lines of death,
And on the air the faint, astringent musk
Of rotting leaves pours vaguely troubling breath..”

  1. Looks like a typical November sky Nancy! Brrrr. . . makes me feel like another cup of tea! Great job capturing the moody beauty of this time of year.

  2. What a beautiful photograph! (I’d be attempting to take a similar photo somewhere around 5:00 to 5:30 P.M. these days!) You have the most interesting assortment of poetry and quotations!

  3. I miss seeing swooping bats at play during the dusky light. Wonder where they’ve gone? Hm. Lovely moody shot. Love these kinds.

  4. Goodness, what a fabulous photograph!

    And I’m sure the bats are holed up somewhere in their roosting spots already.

    Enjoy the clear light of fall…

  5. You have such a talent for selecting just the right quote to accompany a photo. This is a gorgeous photo, with such incredible color, and a haunting, perfectly fitting, quotation. Thank you!

  6. I was out just last night to look at the sky. It was so overcast I saw only the city lights reflected. An eerie sight.

    This is a beautiful photograph. I have tried to paint skies many ways and always fail. It is difficult to capture such beauty with paint.

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
