Beautiful Great Blue Heron’s Silhouette on Silent Sunday

© Babsje (

Great blue heron underneath a bridge.

For he had come to quietness,
He had come to the place where sun and moon meet
And where the spaces of the heavens open their doors.
He was understanding and love and the silence.
He was the voice of these, as he fed the woodpecker.

Thanks to Krista S and WordPress for the recent Daily Prompt: Silhouette.

Thanks also to Cheri and WordPress for the recent WPC: Silence.

Thanks to CosmicGirlie for hosting Silent Sunday. Yes, there are “words” in today’s post, which is against the “rules,” but I can’t credit the authors of the fine prompts mentioned above without using words. You know what they say about rules anyway… And I know the folks at WordPress put a lot of thought and effort into creating their daily and weekly prompts, so credit where credit is due.


From July 1 through July 30, 2016, I was the Featured Artist of the Month at the Summer Street Gallery. The Great Blue Heron photographs once again graced the walls of the lobby and theater in a one-woman show at The Center for Arts in Natick. In addition to the visual arts shown at the gallery, TCAN has a lively, dynamic lineup of upcoming performing artists.
Through July 13, 2017 I was a Featured Artist at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.

Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.
