This I Know


In a world filled with
uncertainty




we may not always know the path that lies
ahead



nor the choices made 
today







that turn our
tomorrows







into 
sorrow and despair
joy and triumph
heartache and loneliness



the only thing i know for certain

is that the ocean will continue to rise and fall
and a bird's flight 
is full of 
grace

Brian has already said it all and I do so agree with him, Reena! Beautiful captures, wise words and a great reminder of what is important! Thank you!

Kathy said...

These are absolutely gorgeous. I know you're a photo processing fanatic. What lovely program, action, did you use to bring us these beauties. Or is that like asking for a secret family recipe? I could never duplicate your efforts or even come close to your talent!

Beautiful words to go with the pics. The one thing that is constant is nature even if the waters are choppy at times.

Your soft and subtle images here along with your quiet words are just what I needed to read after a super long day at work. Bliss, Reena.

Today was parent conference day and I stayed until 8 pm. Just got home and in my jammies and am enjoying a glass of wine. Heaven, I tell you ~
