Magic Moments-at Esperanza

Or Morning Coffee on the porch

 

Asking all forgiveness from Robert Frost-

But as I ran upstairs to grab my camera his poem ‘Dust of Snow’ rang in my head and so…

 

The way the morning sun

Cast tracery

From fern leaf spun

Across my cup of coffee

 

Has given my heart

A change of mood

And saved some part

Of a day that I had rued

 

And, Then…when I came back with a new cup of coffee and my camera the shadow was gone!

That is when I remembered John Snell’s advice from his recent photography workshop given on Star Island, “where there’s one there’s usually more.”

Here are the results from that word of encouragement. Thank you John!

Magic Moments-“YES”

9:00 AM

I closed my eyes

and felt you there-

The room was darkened still, with blinds shut tight.

I wondered was there someone there

to put the coffee on and

End your night?

Now off to mess about in clay and it is a beautiful day with a dusting of bright snow under foot.
