Will-o'-the-Wisp

Wisp

"The dawn comes over the silent hills,

And calls to the winds of morn;

The stars grow pale, and the sun cries, 'Hail!'

To the shadowy fields forlorn;

And good-bye, good-bye, to the Will-o'-the-Wisp,

Who dies when the day is born!"

- Annie Campbell Huestis

The flame is lovely; my favorite part of the photo is the smoke disappearing in the dawn. Wonderful combination of beautiful photo and poetry.

RUTH said...

Catching up on your photos...I'm in awe of this and yesterdays shots. Breathtaking :o)

LOVE THIS ONE!!! So beautiful! Way to capture the smoke!

Perpetual Procrastinator said...

In this case, I think it's good to simply repeat the above comments; great shot!

JAM said...

Nice shot! Very original.

Do you have all the poetry memorized or do you think of them, look them up and quote them. I can remember numbers forever and I have a bunch of bible verses memorized but other than that, I'm in trouble.

Neva said...

What a great picture!

ASH said...

How artistic! This looks like a graphic design you would find on a book jacket. Very striking.

Chad Oneil said...

Very unique image, Moi.

annulla said...

Wonderful shot and such a lovely poem. You have the most wonderful ability to find the appropriate words for every photo. I don't always comment, but I'm always a fan.

Faye Pekas said...

Very whispywillish. I love it :)

Kunal said...

ah...something different...to be very nice..somehow feels like the flame is disturbing the gray of the sky...

Ele ^_^ said...

Wonderful shot, as usual! ^^

ToOothlEss WOndeR! said...

poetic composition indeed.
is that a matchstick in your balcony?

Moi said...

JAM : I am bad with numbers and I'm ashamed to say that coz I'm an engineer....and I'm not very good with verses....these are the verses I faintly remember and as and when I remember them I google for them :)


TW : thank you, it's a torch flame to keep the mosquitoes away in a local park here :)

Nikon said...

Wow, really nice one, Moi - great play of the colors.

And yes, we walked up and down Ocean Drive. The Art Deco buildings were interesting, but the beach was sooo disappointing.

ruth said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous, magnificent, you've outdone yourself. The best shot I've seen in a long time, Moi.

Your pictures are so beautiful.

nazzareno said...

When a photo is worth indeed more than thousand words....

Z said...

Very nice! It was a anti-mosquito torch? I don't know if I wanted to know that! :-) Actually, that makes it even more interesting, to find that out *after* enjoying the photo. Beauty lies everywhere if you know where to look for it (and since I'm in a slightly negative mood: there's ugliness all around as well :-()

Thanks for your visits and comments on my Villigen blog.

Di said...

Figurative anti-mosquito torch! Poetry is magic and so is this photo!

Steve Buser said...

Moi, spectacular, magical shot.

Thanks for you warm, encouraging words on my blog.

hey moi....i answered your question over at my site. kind of lengthy..... :)

isabella said...

Very dramatic! How clever of you to capture it and add this fitting poetry...
Unlike mine ;-)

Cris said...

Stunning... the twilight zone...

bluemountainmama said...

have fun doing your girlie movie night! i do the same when my hubby is out. :) wish i was closer and i'd come join ya!

and actually, i don't think it was Olive they portrayed as a lesbian, but her helper, Alice. and i don't even think they use those names for the characters. it's been a while......

but, yeah...good movie overall. it doesn't hurt that aiden quinn is in it. he's a cutie.....those eyes! :)

Kerri said...

Oh you are SO clever! Beautiful, just beautiful! Love the poem too. It fits perfectly :)

Annie said...

That's so beautiful, Moi, and the words are wonderful go-alongs with the photo.

I was at the hospital tonight where my husband is currently a patient. The doctor came in at 8 p.m. to check on his patient. I know the doctor was there at 8 a.m. because he did the surgery then. What a long day doctor's have! It's a wonder you ever got to see your parents.

Hi, I've just been browsing through your photos and your poems! and i want to say, this photo and poem combination just left me amazed! it's a shot that i would have wanted to be able to take! and the sheer delight that you have!

i have always felt that photos are like paintings, they have to be captured artistically knowing what is to be portrayed.. it's an art and you are very good at it! :)

looking forward to more great shots!
