Light of Spring

In the beginning there was nothing.  God said, "Let there be light!"  And there was light.  There was still nothing, but you could see it a whole lot better. 
~ Ellen DeGeneres 

We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own. 
 ~ Ben Sweetland  

Someday perhaps the inner light will shine forth from us, and then we'll need no other light. 
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Those dappled squares -- They're postcards of Japanese paintings.

Wonderful quotes, Ms.M. and beautiful photos, though the first one is a little scary in an ET "the aliens are coming!" way.

Anonymous, you just get better and better. That's one to read aloud over and over. Delicious.

Thank you, Anon. I agree with Dive -- your poem is Delicious to read aloud. xxoo

Thank you, Altadenhiker. I love postcards of Japanese paintings -- and Japanese art. Perhaps a bit of their influence rubbed off?

Hi Dive! Good to see you again. And thank you. Yes, the first one does have sort of an alien-like eeriness to it. There may be an ominous creature waiting for someone to open the gate....
