Capture


Still, silent in the moment as in anticipation of the prey
Feeling the breath - the in between time
Emptiness, expectation
Hope for capturing the moment

Living into the hush of the already past
Will I ever capture the silence
The meaning of the in-between
Will I ever capture myself

Painting - "Acrylic Quilt" by Dianna S. Woolley

  3. Maureen - that "in between time" that we exercise in yoga or meditation is a mysterious moment. I'm glad you confirmed recognition of the phrase - I hoped there were many who would.

    Lucy - Yay and thanks - this painting was so much fun to do, I expect the theme will be alive in the next couple of canvases.....I knew you would recognize the breath:)

  5. Well this is beautiful and fits perfectly with an exhibition I visited yesterday, so I linked it it. Serendipity. The words complement it so well.
