Day 14 – Jewelry

Day 14 - Jewelry

I could bring You Jewels — had I a mind to — by Emily Dickinson

I could bring You Jewels — had I a mind to —
But You have enough — of those —
I could bring You Odors from St. Domingo —
Colors — from Vera Cruz –Berries of the Bahamas — have I —
But this little Blaze
Flickering to itself — in the Meadow —
Suits Me — more than those —

Never a Fellow matched this Topaz —
And his Emerald Swing —
Dower itself — for Bobadilo —
Better — Could I bring?

Today has been a day of distraction.  Sparkly baubles; shiny gold; gleaming silver.  It was hard to ignore the call of the Shiny while I was at work and I “mostly” ignored the temptation.  Mostly.  And when I got home, photo after photo of a plethora of gilt gorgeousness for my eyes to feast one.  I love A365….

This was in the White of the Year — by Emily Dickinson

This was in the White of the Year —
That — was in the Green —
Drifts were as difficult then to think
As Daisies now to be seen —

Looking back is best that is left
Or if it be — before —
Retrospection is Prospect’s half,
Sometimes, almost more.

Who knew it would be so difficult to find something white to photograph today?  Perhaps if I had been able to shoot earlier in the day, during the bright light time, it would have been easier, but then I wouldn’t have gotten my bills paid on time!
