Press close, bare-bosomed Night!
Press close, magnetic,
Night of south winds! Night of the large, few stars!
Still, nodding Night! Mad, naked, Summer Night!
I miss me some mad summer nights... is life so frenetic that they're passing by me? Or is summer so damn weird this days, that we no longer have hot crazy nights ending with us looking at the stars? Or am I getting old? You got me thinking now...
Simply stunning x
Beautiful!!! Is that a little angel or fairy I see in the upper right? So mysterious, I love it!
This is a beautiful piece of work.
Beautiful! I love the night. I can talk to the moon and stars. And, yes, they talk back to you - you just have to know how to listen.
NEED to read Whitman.
beautiful quote! by the way, thanks for your order through my etsy shop :) i'm mailing it today!
how beautifully those two go together!
beautiful. i love Walt Whitman. (always makes me think of the movie the Notebook...) xo sandra
I love this photo. In the middle of decluttering to create studio space I found an old Walt. Cover crumbling, dust flying, and sweat dripping, I sat on a stack of books and took in his magic. :)
magical! both : )
So beautiful...so thought-provoking. I wish I too had more mad summer nights!
