Shadows


Early morning sun
making
delightful shadows
a reminder of Spring
I smile .....


"The mocking bird
opens his throat
among the thorns
for his own reasons....

Your clocks, he says plainly,
which are always ticking,
do not have to be listened to."

~Mary Oliver~

Freedom to "let go of time", Mary Oliver always says it well.

Love the shadow of spring photos.

Wishing you a fine Monday!

Thank you for sharing!

Pretty plants and nice photos of them.

I never listen to ticking clocks anymore. The birds twitter is much more pleasant.

WM, Laura and Darlene, thanks for visiting. The sun is so welcome in the morning. Today it is cloudy...
