Morning Dance


Photo by Scarlett Fogle

Slowly, mist rises above the lake. 
Quietly, white strands greet 
the soft glow of sunlight,
unafraid of its authority over the day.


For a few short moments water visits light.
Together they mingle in the morning silence,
occupying space between
what is above and what is below.
Photo by Scarlett Fogle




Together they play; 
light through mist that dances 
across the surface
of a shimmering lake.

Hi Nellie, Thanks for coming to my blog. Come back anytime. We have some things in common. Even though I am retired, I spent 25 years in Christian Education.. I was in the United Methodist Church.

I also love photography --so it sounds like we have some things in common. Hubby and I love to travel --but we go in our Prius and stay in the Holiday Inn Express... ha

Beautiful photos... Love the mist on the water... I need to check out more of your blog.

Hugs,
Betsy

I love that kind of photo but too often don't get up early enough to capture the scene. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I haven't been to BSG in several years but it's an interesting area.

Very pretty! Love the photos. I love the look of the mist rising off the water - it reminds me of a nearby lake from my childhood memories.

Nellie, I couldn't help but think of this post as I was going to work this morning. I saw a similar photo opportunity but due to appointments I could not stop and try to capture it. But I have yours to enjoy and you give a very beautiful description of the relationship.

Oh, so beautiful...the photographs and the words. We often see such mist and sunlight here in the mountains.

Ah, one of these days I must be up early to capture scenes as beautifully as you've captured these. The epitome of peace !!
