The Alternative ~

Joy requires one to be awake,
Adjusting the heart's ambience to bright.
Some prefer the dark, as is their right,
On grounds of agony, and to forsake
Not only bliss, but all that's blessed by light.

~ Nicholas Gordon


  1. Angela, you've done it again. (But that is not unusual.) A beautiful poem with just the right photo to make the point. I do love the juxtaposition of the flower and the railing.

    Keep up your good works.

  2. You, my dear, are the Artist of the rarest kind, one who can paint a picture with your camera, and then add words to make it a masterpiece.

    Love and miss you too.
    Wanda Mom
