Caught up in the windy applause
I feel myself sway
this way and that I feel churned
spun flexed overcome flattened lifted
fanned out one with the sands the grasses the shores
the skies and the blurring begins slowing
time so that this moment lasts
as long as it must
to become a memory
more than a moment
a timeless gift
** This post is part of Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness challenge. This month’s theme is “motion”. I must say, motion is a challenging subject for me. I hope this image will suffice. I often find so much in motion at the beach. You can find the rest of the gallery on Leanne’s blog, HERE.
What a lovely interpretation of the theme, Carrie.
Oh I am really relieved to hear you say so. I wasn’t sure if this image would even qualify, although I could feel the motion within it. Thanks so much, Chris.
a beautiful moment!
Thank you, Cybele. Sorry to be so late to respond. I have been out of town, so good to take a break from the screen and so nice to come back to comments from you 🙂 Thank you.
no worries Carrie and I’m in the middle of moving!!
The image more than suffices, Carrie. It is motion. I’ve long admired the tough sinews of grass that allows it to bend and whip and not lose itself. I often wish I had seen the American prairies when they were filled with grasses.
I love that flow of long grass, the sound and the movement. Glad to hear you think of motion when you see this image. I laid on the dunes below these grasses for a long time trying to capture some of the dance!
you absolutely met the challenge! I can feel the movement of those grasses.
Oh Laurie, so good to hear that. Thank you. I am not sure why I doubted myself but really happy with the response from this post. I love sea grass moving in those invisible winds, so lulling.
