Hail the Brilliance

in #photographylast year


Clouds drift with the rise of the sun, spreading the paint of a newborn day.


Hail the new day!
Cover me in the brilliance of sunshine
As soon as today, if you may,
If you might
Could it possibly happen
Before tonight

image.png

Oh mercy! For those days that the sweetness of life is interrupted by some painful thorn, don’t throw it away because of the sting; center on the beauty, not just the hurt. Savor the fragrance of life.

image.png

Whispered words, cannot be heard
But, only by the heart
As it should be so
My love, my love

image.png

I let you cover me with a blanket of your memory, just the way it is written on your heart. Oh, the beauty of a new day. Fresh and new and we'll start all over again.


Happy #Caturday! It goes without saying that Saturday will never be replaced by beer or naught... for it has been the day of the cat, since the beginning of time. Amen.

And just because this is so eclectic (It's true!!) we are going to check out the Washington Monument today. There is so much hot air being blown around here in the Capitol lately, you can fly the flag. "Planted firmly on the high pinnacle of American faith, the gently fluttering folds are an inspiration of things that can be."If only. Le sigh.


Flowers. There must always be flowers. This picture is dedicated to #SepiaSaturday by @Old-Guy-Photos.Let's toss out some sepia today!

And just like that, these musings are done. And just so you know, although much sun and shine was used up today, I can guarantee that there is still a little left in my heart. Have a most fabulous day!

Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Because of you, I come back to post, again and again. In the game of life, my friends, pondlife is at least a little further up the evolutionary chain than the insult - pond scum. Keep it classy, people. Kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.


I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

warsan shire

Wow, what a fabulous sunrise @dswigle. Looks like a perfect day to visit the Washington Monument. Hopefully the protesting is at a minimum, love seeing the flag against that blue sky :) Cheers to a relaxing Sunday!

It was a beautiful moment, being downtown and watching the sun rise on the steps fo one of the monuments. Always one of my favorite places to be.

Oh, the protests no longer bother me. I even brought my mom to one a few years back. She had never been to one and so I educated her on an abortion rally OMG. I watch my usually meek and mild mother turn into a protester LOL It was kind of funnyy and I sent the clip (it was on the news) of my mom to my day, who was home.

Anyway...

Thank you and have yourself a great day!

!tip

Oh my goodness, I can just picture your mom! :) She was even on the news? lol I bet your dad got quite a kick out of it. Its so neat you live so close to such an amazing place. The three times I have visited I was so overwhelmed with the rich history, just the feel of the place was unbelievable. I'll need to go back again when I have even more time to spend. Cheers to a great week ahead! :)

Thank you!! My dad was flabbergasted that my quiet little mom held up a sign. Although she is quiet, she is very much opinionated about the issue. LOL

It is an absolutely fabulous place to live and I live far enough to not be on top of the city and close enough to jump a metro. Best of both worlds.

It is always worth a visit!

Have a great week yourself!! I will have to drop by the Birdhouse and see what's cooking! ;)

Sepia Saturday shot!!!!!!!!!! Oh My Gawd!!!!!!!! LOL

Great post Denise. Oh I see you looking with that tiny fleeting smile!!!

Hehe! Thief!! Word thief, anyway. LOL

A sort of SepiaSaturday shot is what you really mean. It wasn't quite sepia-ish enough but, it didn't look right in the full-blown, old fashioned sepia look. But, this was a concession. Oh, I need to get right on it and do a proper post and stop musing around. Know what I mean?

Oh, yes. I can see you found the picture. ;)

Have yourself a wonderfully peaceful Sunday!

Beautiful! I can always rely on poetic photography from you Denise! Been a while - months but it's always lovely seeing the favourites. Thanks for your inspiration @dswigle

Oh!!!! How wonderful to see you!!!! It has been months and months and almost forever! You almost missed the platform drying up and dying before you returned!!! No, kidding! We can't let that happen!

So, I am going to have to go over to the continent to see what is happening in your neck of the world. I was so upset over the atmosphere in the bush and other parts of the country. Such a beautiful place and to ruin it with political unrest, and of course, I am being polite here.

How areYOU?? And this baby!??? I left you when you were so sick, you weren't even getting on, just getting by. :( I hope life has returned to you. Now, I cannot wait for a reply, I must fly over to your place!

Thanks for dropping by!!!! Love to you!

!tip .20

Only a couple weeks to go until baby is born! We are all very excited. Yes I still have full time "morning" sickness so posting is very rare but I try. Thank you for your enthusiastic support and shared sadness over the political situation. It is grievous and alarming. But we are still very blessed in our beloved home sweet homestead - which is our haven. Have a lovely week

Oh, Wow!!! I am so excited for you! Unbelievable with the morning sickness still, although with my first I had it until the moment I gave birth. So unpleasant, but, I remember still being in awe of the miracle itself.

It is alarming for me with your political situation. In this day and age, to have these things go on, I thought we had all grown as people?

Please be careful, you are so out there on your homestead, I guess I worry too much for your safety. xoxo

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Wonderful post as always Denise. The first photo is lovely but the rose one is divine with the droplets.
Love the cat pic and happy he has his day. 😊 🐱 💕

Thank you so much, Jo! @redheadpei

The roses are always beautiful with the morning dew on them, I agree!! We are still extremely hot here, but, I will bet in the next week or two, we will be winding down the heat.

I love #Caturday! :) It is such a happy little challenge!! Thank you for stopping in and saying hello!! It is always a pleasure to see you!

Rose buds with water drops are the sweetest!!! 😍 It's so beautiful. 💕 And you are right, we should not focus our attention to the thorns but to the beauty instead. Thank you for having a beautiful heart that sees the beauty amidst the ugliness. 😁😁

Aren't rose buds with water drops the best?? For some reason, I adore them! There is so much beauty, we needn't focus on that part.

Oh, you definitely have a heart of gold, Ging. No doubt about it.

Thank you for the always kind comments. I wish you a most wonderful day!

Parole, parole ... parole, you know many foreign languages and you know what that means in Italian. For me, only pictures matter now.
The photo with the chicory flower is wonderful. It could just be this photo for the post to be wonderful.

Thank you for the TRDO!! @bluemoon

You know...with all my pleasure! I hope it means something. I'm confused with so many tokens but I like to play with them. Steem-engine and these tokens brought a revival here. I do not know who will resist or have any value so I gather what I can.

I think that is what everyone is doing right now! :) Thanks again!

Yes, I saw it too. At the same time, I use steem-engine to learn how to buy or sell tokens (crypto) ...

Me too!!! :)

Words blurring on the page! LOL

I get it. Someday I may even write some that make perfect sense to all. Until then, parole! Parole! Parole! Pictures only for you. I can accept that. I love the chicory at the end of the season. A little color left as it is making its way back from whence it came.

Oh, the circle of life.

Thank you for stopping by and always leaving your kind words. I hope it has been a nicer day than it has been here. It is still very hot and so humid! Just feels like being in the tropics. Have a lovely Sunday!!

!tip .20

Thanks Denise because you're not mad at me. Parole, parole ... refer to me and I want to express that I prefer to go over words.
It was a beautiful day but and here are beginning to be tropical days. If I were fifty years younger I would definitely take the time to grow citrus fruits and olives in Romania.

if the video don't play click here

Still unavailable! :(

It says: This video contains content from SME, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds. The other link won't play either.

Oh, if you were fifty years younger! LOL I do not always plant for me! There are times I plant something for fifty years from now. We must always think of the next generations so they do not have to start anew always.

Get out and plant those trees when you get home! Your grandchild will thank you! :)

Maybe YouTube is upset with the US? I try another video with the same song. I'm afraid these won't work either, you can search for Dalida with Parole, parole
They are already planted ... in less than 100 square meters we planted 5 birch trees and a Japanese maple.

Hehe. No. YouTube is American, headquartered in San Bruno, California.

Glad you got the trees planted. Of course, I should have known. ;)

It's probably something about copyright, I don't understand why. I'm sorry!
