That I did always love,

I bring thee proof:

That till I loved

I did not love enough.

That I shall love always,

I offer thee

That love is life,

And life hath immortality.

This, dost thou doubt, sweet?

Then have I

Nothing to show

But Calvary.

-Emily Dickinson

I hold Emily Dickinson in high regard along with her poetry. Her writing is uncompromising and so very well crafted in how she puts together words. A lot of her writing is so totally over my head though; it would take me a lifetime to understand it, if ever.

These are more enchanting images from the White Sands expedition; being there for the sunrise and the sunset is overwhelming beautiful on so many levels! This is from the sunrise series.

The first image are hoof prints of an animal that I have no idea what kind of animal would make these marks in the sand. I thought it looked like a heart with a long tail. The "heart" part of the print is about 2-3 inches across. The second shadow is cast from a lovely indentation in the sand. Both images seem to befit this poem.

Hungry to see more shadow shots? Go visit Tracy's blog at Hey Harriet!

Is it just me, or does that hoof print look like a heart?

these sand prints appear to be quite erotic and complement Emily's poetry exceptionally well.
