Walk With Me Into the Sunset

Vineyard gate

Hope is the thing with feathers

that perches in the soul,

and sings the tune without the words,

and never stops at all.

 Emily Dickinson

  9. “And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
    And sore must be the storm –
    That could abash the little Bird
    That kept so many warm –

    IÔÇÖve heard it in the chillest land –
    And on the strangest Sea –
    Yet – never – in Extremity,
    It asked a crumb – of me.”

    Amazing bit the last 2 stanzas. I added those for me to remember. ­čśë
    Another amazing shot. I have this thing for fences and gates when I’m out and about with the camera…which isn’t often enough for my liking. Again with the exquisite golden light at sundown’s start…absolutely stunning. I need a chair, a steaming mug of coffee and that birdsong Dickinson wrote about…..
    *sending prayers and positive thoughts*
