Shade #writephoto

Growing peace
In green silence
Light falls like water
Fleeting visions conjured
Quenching the thirst of the heart
Rest and surcease for the weary
A grove of living columns welcomes
The separation of body and soul
Dappled shadows whisper quiet prayers
Echoing the permanence of stone
Songs joyfully ephemeral
Join the never-ending dance
Cycling through its seasons
No more than echoes
Life and death meet
