A Day of Sharing Words

“Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn.”
-- Thomas Gray

LK Ludwig had the wonderful idea of sharing the words that "touch us, move into our hearts and resonate, creating a feeling, taking us some place . . ."

Join us. Post the words that make your "thoughts breathe" and your "words burn" on Wednesday, November 19. Get the details here.


  1. yes! - will do

    xox - eb.

  2. Love the tree photo. I could stare at it for days.

    I love the word sharing idea... off to check it out.


  3. You've been Tagged! Go to my blog and check it out.

  4. Love the photo. The word idea is great fun!! I will try to post. Did you take this photo? The sky unfortunately looks like where I live in southern Calif, due to the fires just an 45 minutes away from our is almost dark with smoke.

    Warm Wishes,

  5. Great light in this photo. Have you added a color filter or is this natures own golden touch?
    We like the emptiness; the tranquil scenery, the golden color tones -

  6. Beautiful photo to go with these words Leslie! Poetry will live longer than we do and has the power to connect us to the past. My mom just read a poem to our book club that was written 1000 yrs bc.


  7. thanks for the heads-up on this one...i hope i remember to do it

  8. found you through Frivolitea's blog, with whom I took a deMeng workshop in Saluda back in May. like yours, it was inspired but the setting - oh my, your photography is absolutely amazing! Have you ever read the book My House in Umbria, by William Trevor? One of my fav's and your images compliment the narrative very nicely!
    take care.

  9. Dear Princess of the Bent Light and Courted Color:

    This tree looks like the tip of forest I once walked through on the edge of your soul. I dare you to photograph the trees on the edge of my soul... Once mighty oaks and stately elms forever petrified by the heat of your hand... And the temperature of your criticism, which may have been deserved, occasionally.

    I am delighted that our relationship has moved beyond the scope of childish competition. I have grown accustomed to the fact that your blog has 5,000 more readers than mine -- even though each of my posts is the editorial equivalent of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Each of my words are the twisted brush strokes of a mind in anguish.

    I will spend the rest of this evening looking at this picture, and trying to find 5,001 new readers.

    The Man In The Next Room

  10. Spectacular image. And the accompanying words are so powerful.

  11. I just want to crawl right in to your photos and the sharing words project...inspired.

  12. word verification: bless...
    can you believe that?
    savoring this golden image
    a blessing indeed
    blowing kisses
    to the man
    in the other room

    xox - eb.
