Florida live oaks with Spanish moss.

"Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night..."


Dylan Thomas Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

on my less-than-stellar monitor at work, this looks like a reflection shot.
You've tricked my eye with this one! The colors are extraordinarily beautiful...

Soft, muted tones. Nice!

tres belles photos, le choix du sepia (ou une sorte) est tres bon. je connaissais cette version du poeme chanter par John Cale.
j'ai trouve un site ou on peut ecouter ce poeme lu par Dylan lui meme

very beautiful photographs, the choice of sepia (or a kind) is very good. I knew this version of the poem to sing by John Cale. I have find a site or one can listen to this poem read by same Dylan him

Oh my, it's like a tree that grew out of Miss Havisham's table! Wonderful photograph!

And you've quoted one of my favourite poems. I made a pilgramage to Laugharne and later played the part of Dylan's American girlfriend in the play called Dylan. We were all immersed in Dylan Thomas' poetry at the time. Wonderful poet.

Ah, memories...

Thankyou for that - Jilly x

Olivier - thanks for the link, I've incorporated it into the post. It gives me chills to listen to Thomas...

Jilly - how was your American accent ;-)

Susan - amen!

Coolies! We used spanish moss for decorations when I lived in Louisiana. They are hardy little suckers. :-)

Spanish moss is sentimental for me. As a child, it was always my clue, seeing it out the car window, that we had arrived in the S.C. low country and were nearing our ultimate destination -- the beach. :)

I just cleaned my sink and I think I killed some of your Spanish Moss. Well maybe it wasn't Spanish Moss but wherever it came from I am sorry to say it is now gone.
I think it looks a whole lot better on your tree. Thanks for the photo!

I love Spanish moss, and this is a beautiful photo! One more time: do I just post the men at work photo ONLY on March 1st along with the links to the other daily bloggers?

Really great photo-love the sky behind and the moss hanging there like hair.
