EDM 208 - Draw a shadow
And shoot the shadows through and through with light...
I had bought tulips to ward off the worst of February dreariness. As the week went on, they drooped lower and lower and opened wider and wider. On Thursday, the blooms lay right on the table. The ceiling potlights created these odd double shadows as they shone through the petals. It seemed approorate for this week's EDM challenge. As does this lovely poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
Let the dream go. Are there not other dreams
In vastness of clouds hid from thy sight
That yet shall gild with beautiful gold gleams,
And shoot the shadows through and through with light?
What matters one lost vision of the night?Let the dream go!
