Cone of silence

When the lake freezes, the air and land around it become silent, too, as if they have agreed to rest together. Sometimes I succumb to a strange desire to lie down in the tall, golden grass, and when I do I am surprised to know how much what I wanted was what was right.

  3. I love the words you’ve added to your beautiful photo…..and can only agree with your writing.
    I feel the same way often!

    • It does worry my dog a little, though.

      • Mine are all used to it by now….except the youngest and she gets impatient and starts barking at me to get up!
        That can sort of spoil the silence πŸ™‚

        • Mabel is getting used to tramping through the woods with my camera and me, too. I’ve started to think of her as the photographer’s equivalent of a good gun dog. She used to run between me and the subject, but now she’s more likely to stop and stand beside me when I’m looking through the camera.

  4. Lovely image and very verbose for you, still trying to get Flair to stop pushing on spiderwebs. Most of the time she takes one look at the camera and sits down to wait as she’s realised we could be there some time.

    • Flair is a nicely creative dog name.

      I gave up all restraint with those two loooong sentences, didn’t I?

      • Certainly let it rip! πŸ™‚

  5. Complicated sentence structure rules.

    • When I go back and read what I’ve written, even I can’t find the rhythm. Evidently the synapses fire in that sequence only once.

      • Your narrative on this post was stream-of-consciousness-spot-on, Paul.

        Rhythm and simple sentence structure is overrated.

        • I can’t help getting all fuzzy when you praise my writing…even while I’m still stumbling over it.
