feeling fragile


“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

  1. I love this, the tones are beautiful and the placement of the flower perfect…it needed that negative space for thinking, healing and hurting….

  2. Beautiful, and powerful! The atlas answers realistically, while the flowers keep us hopeful. Bravo, Susan! 🙂

  3. Such a delicate image representing fragility. The quotation is very pertinent and makes me wonder what we are all doing to this poor, weary old world. It’s certainly a wake-up call.

  4. I love the quote and will have to look that author up. Beautiful photo showing both fragility and a quiet strength. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
