And Yet – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“An age is called “dark”, not because the light fails to shine but because people refuse to see it.” James Michener

And Yet

And there we all were,
no cares in our world,
sole operators without 
reference to any of the
subtle reminders that we 
are not outside nature's pull,
how small we seem now,
and yet, a thin golden thread
casts a path into the night
of our days.

  4. Lovely words for a stunning shot, Paul. It looks so peaceful, as the sun gently slips away, as does time.
