There’s a certain slant of light

THERE’S a certain slant of light,
On winter afternoons,
That oppresses, like the weight
Of cathedral tunes.

Heavenly hurt it gives us;
We can find no scar,
But internal difference
Where the meanings are….

-Emily Dickinson

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Winter is in full swing in my neck of the woods. I took the photo above last weekend after the blizzard hit.
Whenever it is done snowing and the roads are clear, I can’t resist taking my Canon out to take a few photos. I used photo editing on this one to give it a softer look.

On a bookish note, I have been reading two books. Freefall into Us by Tess Rosa Ruiz and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Both are poetic.

What are you reading?

Not So Wordless Wednesday

PROUD of my broken heart since thou didst break it,
Proud of the pain I did not feel till thee,
Proud of my night since thou with moons dost slake it,
Not to partake thy passion, my humility.
Emily Dickinson


Emily Dickinson is a favorite. I tend to read and re-read her poems. Something about them makes me want to sit and reflect.

On another note, I hope you are all enjoying your week. It is still hard to believe summer has come and gone but I am looking forward to the Fall, my favorite season.
